CPM expels RS member for anti-party acts


On June 2, Banerjee was suspended for three months, reportedly for his lavish lifestyle and activities, which violated the party’s constitution.

The CPM had set up a three-member panel led by party MP and politburo member Mohd Salim to probe the charges against Banerjee. The panel had submitted its report to the state committee, recommending suspension of the Rajya Sabha MP.

On August 8, CPM state secretary and politburo member Surjya Kanta Mishra had sent the committee’s recommendation to the party’s central panel.

CPM sources had said that along with Banerjee’s lifestyle, there were complaints of "acts of indiscretion" by him.

Banerjee has been in trouble for using an Apple watch and a Mont Blanc pen while watching a football match in February. A party worker had posted the photographs on social media, wondering how a party full-timer could afford such gadgets. The enraged MP had retaliated by reportedly sending an email to the Bengaluru-based startup company where the party worker was employed, asking them to look into the matter. The email was leaked and the CPM issued a stern warning to Banerjee.

The latest charges against the MP came on Monday evening, after Banerjee gave a tell-all interview to a local television news channel, where he squarely accused several politburo members for conniving and blocking the renomination of CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury to the Rajya Sabha.
