Congress leader and former spokesperson Sanjay Jha has been suspended for “anti-party activities and breach of discipline”, the party’s Maharashtra unit said on Tuesday.

The entrepreneur-turned-politician’s suspension from the Congress comes weeks after he wrote a newspaper article critical of the country’s oldest political party.

“Jha has been suspended with immediate effect for anti-party activities and breach of discipline”, Maharashtra Congress chief Balasaheb Thorat declared in a statement.

Thorat is also a minister in the state, where the Congress is part of the Shiv Sena-led ruling coalition.

Soon after the article appeared in a leading English daily last month, the Congress had removed Jha as a party
spokesperson.
