Congress expels 11 rebels before civic body polls in Madhya Pradesh

BHOPAL: The state Congress on Monday expelled 11 members from various districts for anti-party activities. The decision was taken by PCC president Arun Yadav who expelled all 11 identified party rebels for a period of six years. Amongst those expelled include Kavita Pandey, niece of former assembly Speaker Shrinivas Tiwari. She is also the cousin of the party's sitting MLA from gurh assembly seat Sundarlal Tiwari.

State Congress chief spokesman said that Kavita Pandey filed her nomination as the mayoral candidate for Rewa Municipal Corporation. But the Congress party has given the ticket to Priyanka Tiwari. Instructions were given to Kavita to withdraw her candidature from the mayoral contest against Priyanka, which she flatly refused. The state Congress, thus, expelled her. She will now contest as an independent.

Others expelled were identified as Manisha Rai, Kishore Rai, Ashok Rai and Virendra Modi from Tendukhera. Similarly, Vasant Bhatiya, Chintu Jaiswal and Vijay Patel from Agar have also been fired. The controversy in the ouster of all these Congress members was the same - all of them revolted the tickets distribution process for the approaching urban civic body polls. Chandrasekhan Mesan from Khurai, Mukesh Rai from Raisen, Brijkishore Senjuriya from Udaipura and Sanjay Srivastava from Panagar were also expelled for anti-party activities. Like Kavita Pandey many of these sacked Congress workers have filed nomination papers to contest as independents.
