Patiala MP and former Union Minister, Preneet Kaur, has been suspended from the Congress party over allegations of “anti-party activities.” The decision was taken by the Disciplinary Action Committee (DAC) of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) after a complaint was made by the Punjab Congress Chief and other state leaders.
Kaur, who is married to former Chief Minister Amarinder Singh (who was expelled from the party and joined the BJP), has been asked to explain within three days why she should not be expelled from the party.
AICC General Secretary Tariq Anwar said in a statement, “The DAC carefully considered the complaint and decided that Preneet Kaur, MP Lok Sabha from Patiala should be suspended from the party with immediate effect and she has been called upon to show cause within three days as to why she should not be expelled from the party.”
The move by the Congress has sent ripples through the political circles in the country, with many speculating the outcome of the case.
