Shimla, February 28

Six Himachal Pradesh Congress legislators who cross-voted in the Rajya Sabha election on Tuesday and were staying at a hotel in Haryana left for Shimla for the Budget Session of the state assembly on Wednesday.

Earlier on Tuesday, CM Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu had claimed that opposition leaders were obstructing the work of counting officials, and that "5-6 Congress MLAs were taken away in a convoy of the CRPF and Haryana Police".

Meanwhile, members of the BJP Legislature Party led by Jai Ram Thakur on Wednesday met Governor Shiv Pratap Shukla.

The meeting comes a day after the ruling Congress's Abhishek Manu Singhvi lost the Rajya Sabha election to the BJP's Harsh Mahajan despite the Congress enjoying a comfortable majority in the state assembly.

After meeting the governor, Thakur said, "We have informed the governor about what happened in the Assembly...In the Assembly, when we demanded division of vote during the financial bill, it was not allowed and the House was adjourned twice. The way marshals behaved with our MLAs was not right. We have a doubt that the Vidhan Sabha Speaker can suspend BJP MLAs and some MLAs of Congress who voted for BJP in Rajya Sabha election. Currently, the Congress government has lost the right to stay in power."

Meanwhile, winning BJP candidate Harsh Mahajan feels the BJP is in pole position to return to power in the state.
