Lucknow: Taking strong exception to its MLA
Sukhlal`s name figuring in the list of Congress candidates for
the 2012 UP Assembly elections, the BJP today suspended him
from the party.
The ruling BSP will also petition Assembly Speaker Sukhdev
Rajbhar seeking Sukhlal`s disqualification from the membership
of the House, party spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak said.
Sukhlal, sitting MLA from Barkheda (Reserved) seat in
Pilibhit, has been suspended with immediate effect by state
unit president Surya Pratap Shahi, he said.
He was among the 62 candidates Congress had announced
yesterday for the Assembly elections.
