Goa bench of Bombay High Court has dismissed the petition filed by Lavoo Mamledar against Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) challenging his expulsion from the party and post of general secretary of the party for six years.
The division bench of Justices MS Sonak and MS Jawalkar heard the petition. The bench of the HC during the hearing upheld the MGP’s election held on January 19.
“Today’s decision by the HC shows that MGP is never involved in any illegalities and we go by the constitution of the Party. Many people had tried to finish MGP but it can never happen; MGP is Goa’s pride,” said MGP President Deepak Dhavalikar.
MGP’s Central Committee had expelled its former Ponda MLA and general secretary Lavoo Mamledar for what the party called “anti-party activities and indiscipline”.
“We had decided to expel him for anti-party activities and indiscipline as per the Constitution of the MGP. We had given him enough chances to fall in line but he continued the same,” Dhavalikar added.
