NEW DELHI, Dec 5(Agencies) : Vice President and Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu’s decision to disqualify rebel JD(U) leaders Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar from the upper house “casts a shadow”, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said today.

In the meanwhile, Naidu said in his order disqualifying rebel JD(U) MPs Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar Ansari from the Rajya Sabha, “Disqualification of a member of legislature should be decided by the presiding officer within three months to thwart political defections.”

Yet Yechury also questioned the “mind-boggling” speed with which the decision was taken.

“Like Ceasar’s wife, the Rajya Sabha Chairman’s decision must be above questioning, but the disqualification of Rajya Sabha MPs Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar casts a shadow,” Yechury tweeted.

He also questioned the urgency shown by the chairman.

“The petition was filed on September 2 and the decision is out on December 4. The speed is mind-boggling. Similar cases are pending in Lok Sabha for over a year. So political affiliation is the only thing that matters?” the Left leader asked.

Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar were disqualified from the Rajya Sabha on Monday night.

Naidu said in his communication that both leaders ceased to be Rajya Sabha members with immediate effect.

He agreed to the JD (U)’s contention that the two senior leaders had “voluntarily given up” their membership by defying their party’s directives and attending events of opposition parties

Naidu, who is the Rajya Sabha chairman, yesterday disqualified the two JD(U) rebels just over a month after a plea was filed in this regard and did not refer the matter to the committee on privileges.

In his order, Naidu said that the petitions on whether a particular legislator is entitled to sit in the legislature or not should not be kept pending and dragged on by the presiding officer as it subverts the essence of the Anti-Defection Law.

Such applications were dragged with a view to save the membership of the persons, who have otherwise incurred disqualification or even to save the Government, which enjoys majority only because of such type of persons, Naidu added.
