Somnath Chatterjee

Somnath Chatterjee's False Assertions

The decision to take disciplinary action against Somnath Chatterjee was taken at a full Polit Bureau meeting held on July 19, 2008. The Polit Bureau decided to convey to Somnath Chatterjee once more, the decision that he should forthwith resign from the Speakership and not preside over the Lok Sabha session on the trust vote. The Polit Bureau concluded that if he refused to do so he should be expelled from the Party as it would amount to helping the Congress-led government.
