PDP expels MP Nazir Ahmad Laway from party

Straight Line News Network

Srinagar, Nov 1: The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) expelled its Rajya Sabha member Nazir Ahmad Laway from the party on Friday for “anti-party activities”, after he had attended the swearing-in ceremony of the new Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir.

“The member of Rajya Sabha, Nazir Ahmed Laway, has been expelled from the basic membership of the party,” a PDP spokesman said in a statement here.

The decision, he said, has been taken by the party leadership in view of Laway’s participation in the swearing-in ceremony of the newly appointed Lieutenant Governor in Srinagar undermining the party’s stand.

The spokesman said that the participation of the MP was in contravention to the party’s stand regarding the current political situation and the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under Article 370 of the Constitution. G.C. Murmu was on Thursday sworn in as lieutenant governor (L-G) of Jammu and Kashmir.

This is not for the first time that Laway has gone against the directives and instructions of the party, the spokesman said.
