On February 29, the Speaker disqualified six Congress MLAs—Sudhir Sharma, Rajinder Rana, Davinder K Bhutto, Ravi Thakur, Chaitanya Sharma, and Inder Dutt Lakhanpal—under the anti-defection law. The disqualification came after the legislators cross-voted in the Rajya Sabha polls.

The cross-voting in the Rajya Sabha election resulted in a 34-34 tie, with three Independents and six Congress MLAs voting for the BJP, securing the victory for the BJP candidate after a draw of lots.
