JD(U) suspends its RS MP Anil Sahani chargesheeted by CBI in LTC scam
PATNA: The Janata Dal (United) has suspended its Rajya Sabha member Anil Sahani from the party’s parliamentary board. He was charge-sheeted by CBI in the LTC scam recently.
Talking to AIR, party spokesperson K C Tyagi said yesterday that the action was taken as the MP’s reply to the notice was found unsatisfactory.He said, the party had given Sahani show cause notice on April 16 after Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari gave the sanction to prosecute him in the case.
Mr Sahani was asked to explain his conduct within a week before former JD(U) president Sharad Yadav, who is leader of the party in Rajya Sabha.
In his reply, the MP had told the party that he is a campaigner against corruption and is innocent. CBI had filed a chargesheet against Mr Sahani alleging that he, in collusion with other persons, used forged e-tickets and fake boarding passes to defraud Rajya Sabha to the tune of 23.71 lakh rupees as travel and dearness allowance reimbursement ,without undertaking actual journey.
