Samajwadi Party on Friday expelled its MLC Ramlali Mishra and six others for allegedly working against the party and its official candidate in the ongoing assembly polls.

MLC Mishra was expelled along with Bhadohi district panchyat chairman Kajal Yadav and block head Manish Mishra, besides four others of party’s Bhadhoi units on directives of SP national president Akhilesh Yadav, said SP spokesman Rajendra Chowdhury.

Ramlali’s husband Vijay Mishra, who is an SP MLA in the present assembly, is contesting from Gyanpur seat of Bhadohi as a rebel party candidate following denial of the party ticket. He is contesting as Nirbal Indian Shoshit Hamara Aam Dal candidate.

Mishra was replaced by the party from Ramrati Bind on this seat. The polling for this seat will be held on March 7 in the seventh and last phase.
