Bhopal: Two days after he described ministers
as `Ghoshna-Veer` (those who only make announcements) and
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan as their chief, the BJP
today removed the party`s Madhya Pradesh unit Vice-President
Raghunandan Sharma from the post.

The party also issued a show-cause notice as to why
disciplinary action should not be taken against him.

A press release, issued by state BJP media in-charge,
Hitesh Bajpai, said state BJP president Prabhat Jha had
divested Sharma of his post with immediate effect.

The action follows Sharma`s statement in Ujjain two days
ago, describing ministers as `Ghoshna-Veer` (those who only
make announcements) and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan
as the `chief` of Ghoshna Veers.

Sharma has been given ten days to reply to the notice.
Sharma had once left BJP to join Uma Bharti`s Bharatiya
Janashakti Party, but later he returned to BJP.
