Manjit Singh Calcutta expelled from SAD
Chandigarh, July 7 (UNI) The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today expelled its senior leader Manjit Singh Calcutta from the party for six years on charges of mudslinging and anti-party activities.
This decision was taken by the SAD's high-powered disciplinary committee, which met here today under the chairmanship of Gurdev Singh Badal.
The other two members who were present in the meeting were Balwinder Singh Bhundar and Rattan Singh Ajnala.
The disciplinary committee analysed threadbare the reply filed by Mr Calcutta to the show cause notice issued to him on June 24 and unanimously resolved that it was totally unsatisfactory, a party spokesman said in a statement issued here.
The committee also unanimously upheld the explusion of four party activists from the primary membership of the party for six years for ''indulging in anti-party activities''.
They are Subegh Singh, senior vice-president district Amritsar (urban), Ranjit Singh, the senior vice-president Amritsar (rural), Manjit Singh, the vice president Amritsar (rural) and Harinder Singh (Honey) Randhawa.
All the four were expelled by the Amritsar district President Dr Rattan Singh Ajnala on July 5, 2006.
