As the political crisis in the Uttarakhand government deepened, the Congress on Monday expelled former chief minister Vijay Bahuguna’s son Saket Bahuguna and party joint secretary Anil Gupta for six years for “anti-party” activities.
Saket was among the nine MLAs who rebelled against the Harish Rawat government.
State Congress chief Kishore Upadhyay said the disciplinary committee recommended to the Pradesh Congress Committee that Saket and Gupta be expelled on the basis of their statements published in newspapers and broadcasted by news channels.
Considering the activities of Saket, who was a two-time Lok Sabha candidate from Tehri seat, and Gupta as “anti-party”, the PCC accepted the recommendation of the disciplinary committee and expelled them for six years.
