The entrepreneur-turned-politician’s suspension comes weeks after he wrote a newspaper article critical of the Congress party.
Mumbai: Former Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha has been suspended from the party for “anti-party activities and breach of discipline”, the party’s Maharashtra unit said on Tuesday.
The entrepreneur-turned-politician’s suspension from the Congress comes weeks after he wrote a newspaper article critical of the country’s oldest political party.
Jha has been suspended with immediate effect for “anti-party activities and breach of discipline”, Maharashtra Congress chief Balasaheb Thorat said in a statement.
Thorat is also a minister in the state, where the Congress is part of the Shiv Sena-led ruling coalition.
Soon after the article appeared in a leading English daily last month, the Congress had removed Jha as a party spokesperson.
