Janata Dal (U) expels Prashant Kishor and Pavan Varma

Janata Dal United President and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today expelled party Vice President Prashant Kishor and General Secretary Pawan Kumar Verma from the party due to anti-party activities.

Nitish Kumar’s decision comes weeks after the two leaders had, in their public remarks, raised questions about Nitish Kumar’s support to CAA. They had been outspoken in their criticism of the NDA government’s amendment to the Citizenship Act which is about granting citizenship to religious minorities from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

Prashant Kishor and Pavan K Verma voiced their concerns about the Act’s possible misuse to harass people when seen in the context of the proposed National Register of Citizens.
