ELECTION PETITION FROM KHAN ABDUS
SAMAD KHAN OF BRITISH BALUCHISTAN
The Chairman : The next thing which I have to bring to the notice of
the House is that I have received an election petition from Khan Abdus Samad Khan of British
Baluchistan challenging the validity of the election of Nawab
Mohammad Khan Jogazai as a member of the
Constituent Assembly representing British Baluchistan. The House will
doubtless look into this matter, in due course, after the election of the
permanent Chairman. But my ruling at this stage is that the gentleman
declared elected will continue to be regarded as a Member of this House until
the matter is disposed of, at a later stage, by the House, after the election
of the permanent Chairman.
The next item on the agenda is the provisional Chairman's inaugural address.
I will do my best to read out the whole of the address, but if I feel the
strain too much, you will kindly permit me to hand over the typescript to Sir
B. N. Rau, who has very kindly undertaken to read it for me. But I hope there
will be no occasion for it.
