Congress Expels Haryana MLA Kuldeep Bishnoi Over Rajya Sabha Cross-Voting


New Delhi: The Congress party expelled party MLA Kuldeep Bishnoi from all his present party positions on Saturday, with immediate effect.

The Haryana legislator was at the receiving end of his party’s ire for cross-voting in the Rajya Sabha polling for two seats in Haryana. His move led to party candidate Ajay Maken’s defeat.

Bishnoi cross-voted for media baron Kartikeya Sharma, who had entered the poll fray as an Independent candidate supported by the BJP and its ally JJP.

Bishnoi, in a cryptic tweet in Hindi on Saturday, had said, “I know how to crush a snake’s hood. I do not leave the jungle in fear of snakes.”

He has allegedly been sulking over being sidelined during the revamp of the party’s state unit.
