Bhopal, 4th Nov. The Congress party in Madhya Pradesh has expelled 39 leaders from its primary membership for a period of six years. These leaders were expelled for contesting in the upcoming state assembly elections against the official candidates of the party. The decision to expel these leaders was made by Kamal Nath, the chief of the party’s state unit. Rajiv Singh, the state vice-president of the party, issued a release confirming the expulsion.
The expelled leaders are either contesting as independent candidates or representing other political parties such as the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), the Samajwadi Party (SP), and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
