Keep­ing Party MPs in Check

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

Will the party whip would ap­ply on Subra­ma­nian Swamy and Navjot Singh Sidhu? Both are BJP mem­bers, but have made it to RS as nom­i­nated MPs. As per the 10th Sched­ule, if a per­son has been a mem­ber of a party, then he/she will be bound by the party whip even if that per­son en­ters House un­der the nom­i­nated cat­e­gory. BJP hopes the pro­vi­sion will help rein in those known to have a mind of their own.
