Nagpur: Former state minister in Vilasrao Deshmukh’s Cabinet and a four-time Congress legislator Satish Chaturvedi on Friday was shown the exit door by the 

Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) for “indulging in anti-party activities”.

 

Mr Chaturvedi claimed that he has not received any notice from MPCC and the one issued by Nagpur city and district Congress president Vikas Thakre has no value. He said the MPCC has no power to sack him and the notice has to be forwarded to the disciplinary committee since he was a former minister. “Now the 

All India Congress Committee (AICC) is preparing itself for a plenary session. How can MPCC jump to such a conclusion?” said Mr Chaturvedi. He added that he was not in Nagpur currently and said will come out with a detailed response on Saturday.

After a series of process, first Nagpur city and district Congress committee issued him a show cause notice for his anti-party activities and asked to reply. The 

 

MPCC through its general secretary advocate Ganesh Patil in a letter dated February 22, has written to Mr Chaturvedi claiming that he indulged in anti-party activities during the elections of Nagpur Municipal Corporation  in 2017. Mr Chaturvedi was issued a showcause on January 23.
