Four MLAs of the Samajwadi Party were suspended after it was revealed that they had engaged in cross-voting during the Rajya Sabha polls.
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav suspended the MLAs - Bhagwan Sharma (Dibai), Mukesh Sharma (Shikarpur-Bulandshahr), Nawazish Alam (Buddhana-Muzaffarnagar) and Shyam Prakash (Gopamau-Hardoi) - on charges of anti-party activities.
The MLAs have been accused of voting against Samajwadi Party candidates in the Rajya Sabha polls.
Pradesh18 quoted SP spokesperson Rajendra Chowdhury as saying that the MLAs were suspended for defying orders and acting against the party.
Last month, the party suspended and later expelled party MLA Rampal Yadav (Biswan-Sitpur) after he manhandled some government officials over the demolition of his illegally-constructed building.
