Rebel party MP from Haryana Chaudhary Birender Singh and former CWC member Jagmeet Brar were penalised for deliberately lowering the prestige of the party
New Delhi : Cracking the whip, Congress suspended rebel party MP from Haryana Chaudhary Birender Singh and former CWC member Jagmeet Brar for gross indiscipline and deliberately lowering the prestige of the party, PTI reports.
Brar, a senior leader from Punjab, had recently criticised the functioning of the party and had suggested that Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice President Rahul Gandhi should take a break for some time and hand over the reins of the party to somebody else. Singh, who revolted against Haryana Chief Miniser Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, had met BJP chief Amit Shah last month and appears set to dump the party and join BJP.
Singh would also be attending a rally at Kaithal in Haryana on August 18, to which Shah too has been invited, where he is likely to join that party.
