Bhopal | The Congress Party has expelled its veteran leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi from the party for 6 years after campaigning for his son who is contesting in the upcoming polls in Madhya Pradesh on Samajwadi Party ticket.
Chaturdevi who is a member of the Rajya Sabha from Congress was upset with the party after his son Nitin Chaturvedi was denied a ticket from the Rajnagar constituency in Chhattarpur district. The party has filed sitting MLA Vikram Singh from the seat who is seeking for the 4th term as MLA form the Rajnagar seat. Nitin Chaturvedi later moved to the Samajwadi party and contested from the same seat. Satyavrat Chaturvedi alleged that his party was doing injustice to him by denying his son an assembly ticket since last 15 years so he will be campaigning for his son.
However, the former Congress spokesperson claimed that he “was born as a Congressman and would die as one” but he “will canvas for his son” as he could not leave his at the “mercy of others” as a “dutiful father.”
Assembly election will be conducted in Madya Pradesh on November 28, while the results will be declared on December 11 along with Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram. The Congress party is looking to cash in the anti-incumbency factor by defeating the Shivraj Singh Chouhan led Madhya Pradesh government who is looking for its 4th consecutive term.
