Kathmandu, February 13

Upendra Yadav led Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal expelled two the Central Committee members – Rizwan Ansari and Raj Kumar Yadav — for acting against the party’s interests and policies.

According to Yadav’s Press Advisor Mahesh Chaurasiya, the party reached a decision to expel these two leaders as they were involved in a media campaign against the party’s chairperson.

Chaurasiya said Ansari was also trying to form a separate Muslim Party.

Ansari had recently formed a Federal Nava Bichar Samuha within the party to press the party leadership to address the rebel leaders’ six point demands, including guarantee of proportional representation of all ethnic communities within the party structures.

Ansari had then warned the party that if their grievances were not addressed within the party they would take a decision by calling a national gathering of the party.

Ansari and some other members of the party had recently criticised the party leadership for taking part in the prime ministerial election. The group had also urged the party lawmakers to quit parliament in order to intensify street agitation.

Ansari told THT that party’s decision to expel him and Raj Kumar Yadav was an indication that party chair Upendra Yadav was not allowing internal democracy or dissenters to put forth their views within the party.

“On what moral ground can Yadav take action against us? Now the people of Madhes and marginalised communities will take action against Yadav,” Ansari added. He said the group that he had formed a few days ago will meet on Wednesday and discuss their expulsion and may decide to organise national cadres’ meet.
