    BREAKING: HC upheld Speaker’s order of derecognizing Debabrata Saikia as LoP

    Earlier, the court had put an interim stay on the proceedings after Saikia moved the court

    GUWAHATI: The Gauhati high court on Wednesday upheld the Assam Assembly Speaker’s order in which Congress Legislature Party leader Debabrata Saikia has lost the status of Leader of the Opposition in the 126-member Assam Assembly.

    With the court order, the Congress Legislature Party leader Debabrata Saikia would lose his status of Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly.

    Earlier, the court had put an interim stay on the proceedings after Saikia moved the court.

    An official notification issued by the Speaker said the Assembly had withdrawn the status from Saikia with Congress’s strength in the House was not sufficient than the required number of 21 MLAs.

    The party had won 26 seats in the 2016 Assembly elections to emerge as the single largest party. Two of its members died, while two others have resigned. It lost two seats held by it in the bypolls.
