Azad dropped from Disciplinary Comm

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Nov 18: Congress today dropped senior leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Sushil Kumar Shinde from its disciplinary committee as it reconstituted the panel with AK Antony continuing to head it while adding four new members.
The omission of Azad, a prominent leader of G-23 or change-seekers in the party, came a day after a group of leaders supporting him in Jammu and Kashmir resigned from the party, alleging that they are not being heard and raising a banner of revolt against UT party president Ghulam Ahmed Mir.
The revamp of the Disciplinary Action Committee was necessitated with the death of Motilal Vohra, who was the member secretary of the Panel. Azad, Shinde and former Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Mukut Mithi were the other four members who were dropped.
In their place, Congress general secretary Tariq Anwar will be the Member Secretary while Congress Working Committee member Ambika Soni, senior Delhi Congress leader Jai Prakash Aggarwal and Parameshwara will be other members.
