Congress expels Amit Jogi for six years

233 Days ago

Raipur/New Delhi: The Congress on Wednesday expelled its legislator Amit Jogi, son of former chief minister Ajit Jogi, for six years for indulging in anti-party activities.

The expulsion came in the wake of revelations about his alleged role in fixing the Antagarh by-election in 2014.

The decision was taken during a meet of the Congress state unit that also approved a proposal to suspend his father and former chief minister Ajit Jogi.

Chhattisgarh Congress chief Bhupesh Baghel said the party had acted, and it was now the Bharatiya Janata Party's turn to act against those involved in the "murder of democracy" in Antagarh.

"The proposal to expel Ajit Jogi was also passed. Since this right is beyond the domain of the state Congress, the proposal to expel him will be sent to All India Congress Committee (AICC)," he said.

Amit Jogi, a legislator from Marwahi, voiced disappointment.

"I am hurt. The decision to expel me without proving the allegations against me is biased and unfair," he said.

"I will exercise my right to appeal under rule 8 of article 9 of party's constitution. I have full faith in the party's leadership."

The Congress had earlier issued notice to Amit Jogi over purported conversations that suggested that financial inducement was offered to the party candidate to make him withdraw from the fray in the by-election to the Antagarh assembly seat in 2014.

It also demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Raman Singh and a probe into the issue by a Supreme Court judge. (IANS)
