Alleged involvement in anti-party activities
Let us know that BSP chief Mayawati dismissed Ram Achal Rajvar and Lalji Verma for their alleged involvement in anti-party activities. It is said that during the recent Zila Panchayat elections, both of them fielded candidates against the party. Ram Achal Rajvar, MLA of Akbarpur in Ambedkar Nagar, and Lalji Verma, MLA of Katahari and both were very close to Mayawati. In addition to being expelled from the party, Mayawati also instructed all office bearers that the two MLAs should not be invited to any party program.
