Guwahati, Dec 17: Assam Assembly Speaker Prab Kumar Gogoi has summoed the nine rebel Congress legislators on December 19.
The Speaker will hold a one-on-one hearing on the day before giving his decision on the disqualification petition moved against the legislators by the Congress.
The Speaker had issued notices to the nine legislators after Congress’ chief whip Nilamanisen Deka had lodged a complaint on Dec 1. Though the MLAs were asked to respond within a week, an extension of another week was given after they sought ten more days. All of the MLAs have filed their replies.
They had joined the BJP on November 6.
