Office bearers and workers relieved of posts, to be suspended soon for anti-party activities
The Bharatiya Janata Party has taken action against 40 of its office bearers and party workers for anti-party activities in the run up to polling for the three-tier Panchayat elections in the state. A statement issued by the BJP State general secretary Rajendra Bhandari states that action has been taken against these party office bearers and members based on the reports received from district-level committees formed in various districts by the party. These 40 persons have been relieved of their position in the party and will also be suspended soon. According to Bhandari, action was taken against these office bearers and party workers for filing nomination against the party-supported candidates in the Panchayat elections and prima facie involvement in anti-party activities. They have been relieved of their positions with immediate effect on the directions of the party’s state president Ajay Bhatt.
