Congress expels Sunil Jakhar's nephew for 'openly defending' Punjab BJP chief

Sandeep Jakhar expelled: Sandeep Jakhar, the nephew of Bharatiya Janata Party's Sunil Jakhar, was expelled from the All India Congress Committee on Saturday for engaging in "anti-party" activities.   

In the letter to the Abohar MLA, it was mentioned that  Jakhar engaged in anti-party activities ranging from refusing to participate in the Bharat Jodo Yatra to openly defending his uncle Sunil Jakhar, the BJP's Punjab unit president.  


"Dear Shri Jakhar, The President, of Punjab PCC has complained that you are indulging in anti-party activities in the following manner. You have not been participating in any of the Party programmes including Bharat Jodo Yatra, the house in which you stay is a common accommodation on which a BJP flag flies atop, you have been speaking against the Party and the PCC President, and you are openly defending your uncle Shri Sunil Jakhar," the letter read. 

"After careful consideration, the DAC has decided to place you under suspension from the Party with immediate effect," it further said. 

Sunil Jakhar, the former Punjab PCC president, was named BJP Punjab chief president in July of this year.
