Akhilesh sacks MoS rank leader after temple remarks

“Nehra has been sacked by the Chief Minister on Friday,” SP spokesman and cabinet minister Rajendra Chowdhury told a news agency.

The action by Chief Minister, who is also the state president of ruling Samajwadi Party, came as the Ram temple issue came into renewed focus with two truck loads of stones for construction of the temple being brought to Ayodhya by Vishva Hindu Parishad.

Nehra had on December 23 suggested during a function that Muslims should come forward and help build temples at disputed sites in Ayodhya and Mathura, so that organisations like VHP lose their identity.

“Where can a Ram temple be built if not in Ayodhya? It is an emotional issue. In Mathura, where we worship Krishna, how can there be a mosque there. Muslims should think about it and in fact come forward for Kar Seva (voluntary work) and say build the temples at these places. We should not fall in their (VHP’s)trap,” Nehra has said in Bijnore.

Two SP leaders expelled from party
Samajwadi Party on Friday expelled three leaders for their involvement in “anti-party” activities.

Anand Bhadauria, Sunil Yadav Sajan and Subodh Yadav have been expelled for anti-party activities, party leader Shivpal Yadav said.

While Bhadauria was former national president of Lohia Vahini, Sajan was national president of SP Chhatrasabha.

Subodh is son of party MLA from Etah Rameshwar Yadav.
