SRINAGAR: A senior party leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Jammu and Kashmir unit was on Monday slapped with a show cause notice by the party for indulging in anti-party activities, media reports said.
The action was initiated against the party’s JK unit vice president Sofi Yousuf for indulging in “anti-party” activities.
“Despite being a senior leader of the party and now occupying a very senior position, it has come to the notice of Disciplinary Committee of Jammu Kashmir Bharatiya Janata Party, unfortunately, that you are indulging in anti-party activities and showing marked indiscipline in your political dealings,” read the disciplinary notice issued to Sofi Yousuf.
“You have tried to create dissent in Party Cadre with few more persons and now your audio recording clip has surfaced whose contents depict that you have no regard for Party Discipline and high principles which are the basis of the political ideology of the party. Audio clips are being sent to you with this.”
Yousuf has been directed to submit his reply within seven days, explaining why action should not be taken against him.
“You are directed to submit your reply on your misconduct and indiscipline to the undersigned within 7 days from today as to why the action of removing you from all positions of Party may not be taken in addition to any permissible action. You are further directed not to Interact with media directly or indirectly on any issue including these proceedings till the proceedings are pending,” added the letter signed by Sunil Sethi, Chairman.
