Madhya Pardesh,Politics, Fri, 23 Mar 2012 IANS

Bhopal, March 23 (IANS) Amidst fears of poaching, 30 newly-elected Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislators of Uttarakhand have been sequestered in Ujjain town in Madhya Pradesh ahead of a trust vote on March 29.


The 70-member Uttarakhand assembly has 32 Congress members, 31 of the BJP, three of the Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) and four independents.


The assembly session will begin March 26. However, the next day will be important as the Congress government of Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna will attempt to get its nominee elected as the speaker.


Sources said, the BJP legislators were airlifted to Ujjain, 180 km from here, Thursday evening and were staying at Mittal Hotel.


Thawar Chand Gehlot, the BJP's Uttarakhand general secretary and state president Prabhat Jha are supervising the "operation".


Jha termed it a "pilgrimage". "All this has nothing to do with political developments (in Uttarakhand). They have come for a pilgrimage and will also visit other religious cities in Madhya Pradesh," he added.
