Patna: The ruling JD(U) Disciplinary
Committee on Tuesday recommended stern action against 11 party MPs
from Bihar for alleged anti-party activities during last
year`s assembly polls and expelled 41 party activists.
Talking to reporters here, state JD(U) president
Bashishtha Narain Singh said the three-member disciplinary
committee headed by senior MLA Gyanendra Kumar Sing Gyanu
submitted the inquiry report to him this afternoon.
He said since he was not empowered to take action
against the MPs, he had forwarded the inquiry report to party
national president Sharad Yadav.
The committee recommended stern displinary action against
party MPs -- Arjun Rai (Sitamarhi), Rajiv Ranjan Singh Lalan
(Munger), Mangani Lal Mandal (Jhanjharpur)), Sushil Kumar
Singh (Aurangabad), Meena Singh (Ara), Aswamedh Devi
(Ujiarpur), Baidya Nath Prasad Mahato (Valmikinagar), Monazir
Hasan (Begusarai), Mahabali Singh (Karakat) and Purnamasi Ram
(Gopalganj), Singh said.
It also recommended action against senior party leader
and Rajya Sabha member Upendra Kushwaha.
Singh said Rajiv Ranjan Singh Lalan had revolted against
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar a year ago and had campaigned for
the Congress during the last assembly elections.
Rest of the nine MPs were facing serious charges of
supporting the candidature of their kin and working against
the official NDA nominees in their respective constituencies
in gross violation of the directive of top party leaders.
