J&K BJP removes three party officials in Kathua for 'anti-party activity'

JAMMU: The BJP in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday removed three office-bearers for 'anti-party activity' in Kathua district.

The disciplinary committee led by the party's chief spokesperson in J&K Sunil Sethi probed a complaint against the three leaders.

The committee submitted a report to J&K BJP President Ravinder Raina who ordered the three persons to be removed from their current positions and were further warned of stringent action, a BJP spokesman said.

Municipal councillors -- Anirudh Sharma, Bhopinder Raj, Ravinder Pathania, Karan Singh and Joginder Pal -- from Kathua municipal committee had recently moved a no-confidence motion against party-elected representatives in the committee, which was gross indiscipline on their part, he said.

The dismissed officials comprised Sharma, the party's district spokesperson; Pathania, the district convenor of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and P Bose, the SC Morcha district president of the party.

They were issued show-cause notices by the party's disciplinary committee and directed to submit replies within four days but the officials did not submit any proper reply, the spokesman said.
