The Gujarat Congress suspended 33 persons — including a former MLA and two district presidents — for allegedly engaging in anti-party activities during the recently concluded Assembly elections.
Former MLA PD Vasava, Surendranagar district president Raiya Rathod and Narmada district president Harendra Valand are among those suspended for a period of six years.
Vasava, from MLA from Nandod, was not given a ticket by the party for the 2022 elections.
The party received 71 complaints against its own 95 party workers and leaders. A five-member committee met twice on January 5 and 19, 2023, where the decisions were made.
Five other complaints are such that the decisions have to be taken in consultation with the district party presidents.
Eight party-men facing minor charges have been reprimanded in writing, while 11 applications have been dismissed.
