Cong axes 11 more rebels

Congress on Thursday expelled 11 more party leaders on the charge of anti-party activities ahead of the January 30 assembly polls in Uttarakhand.



Dehra Dun: Congress on Thursday expelled 11 more
party leaders on the charge of anti-party activities ahead of
the January 30 assembly polls in Uttarakhand.

The party had yesterday expelled 16 leaders, Congress
spokesman Surendra Kumar today said.
The expelled Congress leaders include Jot Singh Bist and
Mantri Prasad Naithani.

All these 32 leaders are contesting elections as rebel
candidates from different seats in the state,? Kumar said.
After failing to stem the revolt, both ruling BJP and
Congress in Uttarakhand have started expelling rebellious
leaders.

The two parties have had their share of post-ticket
distribution revolts in over 20-22 each out of the total 70
constituencies.

BJP has so far expelled 22 leaders including 4 sitting
MLAs Kedar Singh Fonia, Raj Kumar, G L Shah and Anil Nautiyal.
The ruling party, which fielded nearly 36 new faces,
created a political storm by axing nearly 12 of the total 36
sitting MLAs from the poll race in the face of
anti-incumbency.
