Congress' former Delhi MP Mahabal Mishra suspended
Congress' former Delhi MP Mahabal Mishra has been suspended from the party for "anti-party" activities, a party statement said on Friday.
"Mahabal Mishra, ex-MP, has been suspended from the Congress with immediate effect for anti-party activities with regard to the ongoing Delhi assembly elections," party's Delhi in charge P.C. Chacko said in a statement.
A prominent Purvanchali face in the party, Mishra had been campaigning for his son, Vinay Mishra, who is contesting as an AAP candidate from Dwarka in the February 8 Assembly elections, a Congress leader said.
The Congress, which ruled Delhi from three consecutive terms (1998-2013) before falling to eight seats in the 2013 polls and none in 2015, faces a tough battle as many leaders have deserted the party.
Shoaib Iqbal, Vinay Mishra, and Harnam Singh are among those who have left the party to join the AAP.IANS
