Samajwadi Party spokesperson Mohan Singh announced the decision to expel the two leaders on Tuesday in Lucknow.
“Some party members have been speaking against Samajwadi Party in the last few months, spewing poison against the party. No party can allow this. Hence we have decided to expel Jaya Prada,” said Singh while announcing the decision to expel Jaya Prada.
“We believe that these people with capitalist interests infiltrated the party to destroy its socialist fabric. Amar Singh and Jaya Prada have expelled both because the party’s image was suffering because of them. It took us time to understand these infiltrators and their conspiracy against the party,” said Singh.
“We are taking legal opinion on seeking their expulsion from Parliament,” he added.
While Jaya Prada is a member of Lok Sabha from Rampur in Uttar Pradesh, Amar Singh is a Rajya Sabha MP.
Along with Jaya Prada and Amar Singh four MLAs of the party in the Uttar Pradesh assembly have also been expelled.
All the four MLAs are reportedly considered Amar Singh supporters.
