Senior JD-U leader and former minister Cheddi Paswan on Friday termed his suspension from the party as 'unconstitutional'.
"My suspension is unconstitutional. Through this act the central leadership of JD-U has insulted 50,000 citizens of Shahabad range in Rohtas district," Paswan told reporters at Sasaram.
Paswan, JD-U MLA from Mohania (SC) seat in Kaimur district, who was earlier served a showcause notice for issuing a public statement against JD-U leader in the Lok Sabha Prabhunath Singh and Bihar party president Rajiv Ranjan Singh, was suspended by party president Sharad Yadav on Thursday.
Paswan had spoken against the two leaders for their critical remarks against former party chief George Fernandes who had made adverse comments against the Nitish Kumar government for the lathicharge on agitating teachers in Patna last month.
