Share post:


New Delhi: Following the sacking of Congress leader Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan, now the Sonia Gandhi run Indian National Congress (Congress) has suspended a former prominent face on TV channels for the party Sanjay Jha with immediate effect for ‘anti-party activities and breach of discipline’.

The suspension of Jha comes hours after he had backed the sacked Rajasthan Deputy CM Sachin Pilot. “For five years Sachin Pilot gave his blood, tears, toil and sweat for the Congress party between 2013-18. The Congress came back from a wretched 21 seats to 100. We just gave him a performance bonus. We are so meritocratic. We are so transparent”, Mr Jha wrote on twitter. 

“Sanjay Jha has been suspended from the Congress Party with immediate effect “for anti-party activities and breach of discipline”, a party release signed by MPCC chief Balasaheb Thorat said.

In June 2020, Congress president Sonia Gandhi had removed Jha as a party spokesperson, days after he wrote a newspaper article which was deemed critical of the party.
