Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee on Saturday formally expelled former MP Dharmraj Patel, who re-joined Samajwadi Party on November 17 and was given a ticket by the party from Phoolpur constituency of Allahabad in SP's second list of candidates for 2014 general elections.
Apart from Patel, former Lakhimpur Kheri MLA Arvind Giri and local Lakhimpur Kheri leader Tripti Awasthi were also expelled for six years by former MP Ramkrishan Dwivedi, chairman of party's disciplinary committee following "anti-party activities."
