Srinagar, Jul 4 (UNI) Issuing a whip today, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has directed all its legislators to be present in the House on July 7 to vote against any motion brought by the Congress- led coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir.
Chief Whip of the PDP, Abdul Gaffar Sofi has issued a ''whip'' to all the party legislators asking them to remain present in the Legislative Assembly on July 7 at 1000hrs, when the State Government is supposed to prove its majority.
The whip seeks the party legislators to vote against any motion to be brought by the state government to prove its majority.
Meanwhile, a spokesman of the party has observed that if a member votes against the party whip the Legislature Party leader can declare him disqualified immediately.
Even if a member is expelled from the party he cannot violate the whip in accordance with the Supreme Court ruling and will face the same provisions of disqualification, he said while warning Ghulam Hassan Mir, MLA from Gulmarg, who has been expelled from the PDP.
Governor N N Vohra has summoned the assembly on July 7 to allow Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to prove his majority which becomes necessary after the PDP withdrew its support from the ministry on the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board-land issue.
