Uttar Pradesh assembly Speaker Hriday Narain Dixit has allowed Samajwadi Party to withdraw its plea for disqualification of party MLA Shivpal Singh Yadav.

“SP has presented a petition before me for disqualification of membership of party MLA Shivpal Singh Yadav on Sep 4, 2019. SP leader Ram Govind Choudhary later gave an application on Mar 23 for withdrawal of the petition as important documents and evidence could not be produced,” the speaker said.

“After going through the documents, I approve Chowdhury’s request for withdrawal of the petition,” the speaker said in its decision on Wednesday.
