Madhya Pradesh : Congress suspends 14 leaders including veteran leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi

Satyavrat Chaturvedi thanked the party for suspending him

The Congress Party, taking a stringent action, on Monday suspended its fourteen rebel leaders in Madhya Pradesh over involvement in anti-party activities for six years.

Nitin Chaturvedi, son of Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP from Madhya Pradesh Satyavrat Chaturvedi, is also among the suspended leaders. Earlier Satyavrat Chaturvedi was suspended by the party as he was campaigning for his son Nitin Chaturvedi who is contesting the Assembly elections from Rajnagar constituency on Samajwadi Party’s ticket.

Interestingly, Satyavrat Chaturvedi thanked the party for suspending him from the party. “I am thankful to the Congress leadership for expelling me from the party. I have been asking for it for the last fortnight,” he said. When Chaturvedi was asked whether he would campaign for Congress, he said, “I am campaigning for my son. If someone invites me to campaign, I will consider it.”

Satyavrat Chaturvedi wanted a ticket for his son Nitin Chaturvedi for Rajnagar constituency, but the Party decided to go with Vikram Singh (Nati Raja), the sitting MLA from for four terms. “It seems Nati Raja had agreed to contest the Lok Sabha election in 2019, but changed his mind at the last minute and decided to contest the assembly polls. Chaturvedi found there was no one to back his claim for a ticket to Nitin,” the politician said. Denied ticket by party, Nitin joined Samajwadi Party and got a ticket to contest election from Rajnagar constituency in Chhattarpur district.
