BJP MLA Anil Gote demanded dissolution of Maharashtra Legislative Council, maintaining the Upper House has “no constitutional powers”.
Speaking to reporters in Vidhan Bhavan premises, Gote said, “There are only six states where Council is in existence. People who are rejected by voters in the assembly elections, come to the Upper House.”
“The Legislative Council has no constitutional powers and it exists only to please some people politically. Hence, the Council should be dissolved,” he said.
The ruling party legislator said he has written a letter to Girish Bapat, Maharashtra minister for parliamentary affairs, in this regard.
