Former Rajasthan Chief Minister and AICC general secretary Ashok Gehlot said the Congress party was left with no option but to suspend its senior leader K Natwar Singh.
Talking to mediapersons he said "Singh invited trouble for himself by his actions and utterances after the Justice Pathak Authority report was out."
He said Singh has turned out to be a big disappointment to the party and Rajasthan, from where he hails. Singh created such an awkwardsituation that the party was left with no other choice but to initiate disciplinary action, he added.
The party or the people of the state did not approve of such a behaviour from a person who got all the support from the Nehru-Gandhi family and the Congress as he himself has been telling all these days that "what he is today is due to the Nehru-Gandhi family," the former Chief Minister said.
