Sacked Samajwadi party general secretary and spokesperson professor Ram Gopal Yadav expressed surprise over his expulsion from the party and the charges made against him by the party leaders.
“I have no grievances on my ouster from the party but I am hurt on the false charges made against me to defame me,” he told a TV news channel here. “If I had met BJP leaders or Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it was always a courtesy call. Modiji also came to Saifai on the invitation of Netaji,” he said. Mr Yadav also denied that he or his family members are anyway involved in CBI case.
Earlier, SP UP president Shivpal Singh Yadav sacked Prof. Ram Gopal Yadav from the party for six years on the charges of hobnobbing with BJP and to lead a conspiracy to weaken the party.
