KATHMANDU: Deputy Prime Minister and senior leader of Madhesi Janadhikar Forum Bijay Kumar Gachhadar reached the Election Commission on Tuesday afternoon to protest his expulsion from the party.

According to Gachhadar, he along with more than 40 percent of central committee leaders and 32 members of the MJF in the Constituent Assembly decided to show their strength to the EC after MJF chairman Upendra Yadav suspended seven leaders accusing them of violating a party order. Yadav had already asked the PM, Speaker, EC and President to strip them of their CA memberships.
