JAMMU: The BJP on Monday expelled senior party leader from Jammu & Kashmir Hari Om from the party’s primary membership for six years after he criticized the party’s actions, including forming the coalition government with PDP.
BJP J&K president and MP Jugal Kishore Sharma expelled Hari Om for “gross indiscipline, anti-party activities and un-repentance for his misconduct” after receiving his reply to a show cause notice issued to him on November 5.
“Having received your response to the show cause notice, pertaining to your acts of gross indiscipline and anti-party activities, issued on 05.11.2015 and received by you on the same date, your un-repentance for your misconduct is writ large in your reply,” Sharma said in a letter to Hari Om.
“Therefore, keeping in view your anti-party conduct and totally unsatisfactorily explanation, you are hereby expelled from the primary membership of BJP for six years,” he added.
Earlier, the party had served a show cause notice on Hari Om who recently criticized the party’s actions, including alliance with PDP for forming government in the state, saying it amounted to “gross indiscipline and misconduct”.
