MGP ‘officially’ expels Lavu for 6 years


Panaji: Stating that the party will contest the forthcoming municipal election in the state, the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) on Sunday officially expelled former general secretary of the party and former party MLA Lavu Mamledar for six years for alleged anti-party activities.

Addressing the media in Panaji following an executive committee meeting of the party, newly-elected president of MGP Deepak Dhavalikar said the party will fight the forthcoming municipal elections. He also formally expelled MGP’s ex-MLA and former general secretary Lavu Mamledar from the party for six years. Dhavalikar said the move is a part of disciplinary action against Mamledar.

It may be noted that Mamledar was expelled from the party earlier in March 2019 for anti-party activities but no resolution was passed with regard to the same. On Sunday, a formal decision was taken against him and he was officially expelled from the party.

Dhavalikar urged all executive committee members and party workers to sink their differences and come together to strengthen the party ahead of the assembly elections, which will be held in 2022.
