Ram Vilas Paswan's Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) on Friday expelled its National Vice President Ramvir Singh Bidhuri for "anti-party activities" and decided to snap ties with the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) for the Delhi assembly polls.

Bidhuri was expelled as he had taken the NCP ticket and symbol -- while being a member of LJP --to contest from the Badarpur assembly seat, party general secretary Subhash Sharma and Delhi unit president Lalit Kumar Gautam said in a statement.

They said the party has also decided not to support any NCP candidate in the polls because "NCP has committed breach of trust by allotting its symbol to Bidhuri."
