C'garh: Congress unit in Bilaspur demands expulsion of party MLA
Pandey is considered to be a staunch supporter of health minister T S Singh Deo, chief minister Bhupesh Baghel's rival in state Congress.
The Bilaspur Urban Congress Committee has sent a proposal to Chhattisgarh Congress chief Mohan Markam seeking to expel Pandey, who represents Bilaspur assembly segment, from the party for six years, a local leader said.
The MLA and his supporters on Wednesday created a ruckus at Kotwali police station and `facilitated anti-party activities', alleged local unit chief Pramod Nayak.
On Wednesday Pandey along with his supporters had reached Kotwali police station to oppose an FIR registered against party leader Pankaj Singh in Bilaspur for allegedly assaulting an employee of a government hospital. The legislator alleged that Singh was being implicated for his closeness to Singh Deo.
Nayak claimed that Pandey's actions amounted to a breach of party discipline.
Pandey said he would speak on the issue on Friday.
