Congress president Sonia Gandhi today endorsed the “evacuation” of previous Punjab Congress president Sunil Jakhar and previous Union Food Minister KV Thomas from “all party posts” taking into account objections of “hostile to party exercises” against them.
Sonia’s endorsement came on Tuesday after the Congress disciplinary board of trustees, in a gathering prior, as per sources, suggested suspension of Jakhar for a considerable length of time separated from eliminating him from party posts.
The Congress boss, notwithstanding, is figured out how to have not inclined toward a brutal discipline and just endorsed expulsion of the two chiefs from party posts. “Considering the status of Jakhar and Thomas, it has been concluded that the two will be taken out from the party positions.
Brutal move has not been made against them since they are both veteran pioneers, yet some activity was required,” Tariq Anwar, an individual from the Congress disciplinary board of trustees, told The Tribune today. Requested to remark on what will Jakhar be taken out from when he held no post, Anwar said, “He won’t stand firm on any authority footing to some degree sooner rather than later.”
Sonia likewise endorsed a three-year suspension for five Meghalaya MLAs for “making a difference” the Bharatiya Janata Party in the state. Responding to the day’s turns of events, Jakhar “wished the party best of luck.”
He said, “The manner in which the party authority has dealt with my case, they have disparaged me and shown me in an unfortunate light. Such a disposition isn’t adequate. I host previously wished the gathering best of luck. Besides, I stand firm on no footing in the party.”
Jakhar’s associates said the previous Punjab Congress boss had been exceptionally annoyed about the issuance of a show-make notice him. Jakhar had not answered to the notification.
The objection against Jakhar related to his comments on Punjab political decision eve that “he got the greatest 42 MLA votes in the race for Punjab boss ministership after Capt Amarinder Singh was eliminated. Sukhjinder Randhawa got 16, Charanjit Singh Channi, the Congress’ pick for the post two votes, Navjot Sidhu six and Preneet Kaur 12.” The Congress accepted that the comments estranged the Hindu electorate.
Thomas was given the notification for going to a CPM gathering in Kerala in spite of Sonia Gandhi asking the state chiefs not to do as such. Thomas is as of now individual from the Kerala Congress political issues advisory group and leader panel of the state unit.
