Former BSP MLA expelled for anti-party activities



Lucknow: A former BSP MLA and chairman of 'Awas Bandhu' has been removed from his post and expelled from the party due to "anti-party activities", a BSP spokesman said here today.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and BSP supremo Mayawati has removed Malik Masood from his post and expelled him from the party, besides denying him ticket from Sagadi constituency in Azamgarh district for indulging into anti-party activities, he said.

Awas Bandhu is the housing and urban planning wing of the Uttar Pradesh government.

The spokesman said that the Chief Minister was getting complaints against Masood for long that he was not interacting with the people in the constituency and was involved in his personal works.

In 2009 Lok Sabha elections, Masood also did not campaign in favour of the party candidate Akbar Ahmad Dumpy, he added.
