Lucknow, Jul 24 (UNI) The National Loktrantrik Party (NLP) has expelled its lone Lok Sabha member Baleshwar Yadav from the party for defying its whip and voting for the UPA government in the Confidence Motion.
The party will also move a petition before Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee to terminate the membership of Mr Yadav, the Lok Sabha member from Padrauna seat in Uttar Pradesh, for defying party line.
NLP president Arshad Khan said here today that the decision to expell Mr Yadav was taken by the party's national executive and it will be conveyed to him this afternoon.
''I am going to New Delhi tomorrow and will meet the Lok Sabha Speaker and ask him to disqualify Mr Yadav from the House, he told UNI.
Mr Khan said that his party was against the Indo-US Nuclear deal and opposed the Trust Motion terming it against the national interest.
''The Nuke deal is anti-Muslim and will only make our country a slave of the developed nations, including the US,'' he claimed.
