As political drama heats up ahead of the Bihar Assembly polls, Shyam Rajak was removed from the post of state’s industries minister and expelled by Janata Dal (United) on Sunday.

The notice released by JD(U) stated that the Phulwari MLA’s primary membership was revoked and he was expelled from the party, an ANI tweet showed.

JD(U)’s chief spokesperson Sanjay Singh said he has been expelled for six years over anti-party activities.

Commenting on Shyam Rajak’s expulsion, JD (U) spokesperson Rajeev Ranjan also confirmed that Rajak was expelled due to his involvement in ‘anti-party activities’. “His recent actions were nothing less than an act of indiscipline. So the party decided to take this action against him,” Ranjan told ANI.

This comes after reports alleged that Rajak was hob-nobbing with Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) ahead of the Bihar elections which are slated to be held later this year.

Rajak may join his old party, the RJD, on Monday, PTI quoted sources as saying.
