Lucknow: The ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar
Pradesh today expelled its three leaders in Etah, including a
former MLA, for their involvement in anti-party activities.

"Those expelled included former MLA Raghuvir Singh,
Lakhan Singh and village head of Naraura, Pappu Diwakar,"
party spokesman Rajendra Chowdhury said.

SP is fighting indiscipline in its ranks since the time
it came to power. In a month it has fired several party
leaders for indiscipline and anti-party activities.

Etah, from where SP started its Assembly poll campaign,
is a strong hold of the party and hometown of its supremo
Mulayam Singh Yadav.

On March 21, Mulayam had talked tough to the party
leaders and asked them to keep their supporters "in control".
