Jamshedpur, Dec 10: The BJP leaders expelled by the party for alleged anti-activities unanimously condemned their ouster on Tuesday. They accused top leaders of Jharkhand BJP of being despotic and trying to impose their diktats on dissenting members with some ulterior motive.
Speaking at the meeting convened at Bistupur, Mukul Mishra, one of the leaders, said he had always devoted himself to activities favourable to the organization. He said his ouster was not justified.
Other leaders present at the meeting included Subodh Srivastava, Ramnarayan Sharma, Aseem Pathak, Ratan Mahato, Rajnikant Sinha, RK Dubey, DD Tripathy and Ajay Sinha. They said the Jharkhand BJP was working like a puppet in the hands of a dictator. The organization has lost its originality and has become the pocket organization of a handful of people, they said.
The dissident leaders said their ouster was against the party’s constitution. They said the meeting of party’s Discipline Committee should have been held before taking the decision to remove them. The state BJP president should not have acted at the behest of party’s influential leaders, they said.
The leaders claimed the BJP was going to lose the Jamshedpur East seat this time. They said Independent candidate Saryu Roy was going to win the polls with a huge margin.
