The ruling Janata Dal (United) on Tuesday sacked the party’s Bihar unit vice-president Satish Kumar from the post for alleged anti-party activities.

“Satish Kumar has been removed from the post of JD(U) state vice-president,” state party chief spokesperson Sanjay Singh said.

Along with Satish Kumar, another rebel leader Sanjay Mandal was removed from the post of state organisational secretary for the same reason, he said.

Satish Kumar, a former MLA from Nalanda, has been making statements against chief minister and JD(U) national president Nitish Kumar regularly.

On February 2 last, he held a press conference and accused Kumar of keeping “sycophant advisors”.

His scathing comment on Kumar had come in the wake of JD(U) deciding to keep away from Uttar Pradesh elections.

Satish Kumar, who hails from Nalanda district, has been at odds with the chief minister in the past and had been removed from the party earlier too.
