KOCHI: anatha Dal (Secular) leader N K Premnath has been slapped with a show cause notice, citing him engaging in anti-party activities, said  party secretary general Danish Ali. Ali was addressing a press conference here on Wednesday along with Jose Thettayil MLA. 

“The remark made by NK Premnath on the topic of the merger with Janatha Dal(U) was inappropriate as he was not authorised to say anything on the matter. Further actions against him will be decided during the party meeting on December 3 in  Bangalore,” he said.

He informed that the nomination of Premnath to the executive committee has been cancelled and added that there was no need of a change in  the state leadership under Mathew T Thomas. Though discussions about a merger with JD(U)was held before the Bihar elections, it did not materialised as leaders of both the parties could not come to an amiable agreement, he clarified.

The JD(S) leader added that the integration of non-BJP and Congress parties is still remains a dream of his party. According to Ali, the victory of the Grand Alliance in Bihar was a boon to the nation, and blamed the growing level of intolerance in the country on the failure of the BJP government. He added the Swachch Bharat project of Modi government has been a complete failure. He said the promise of bringing back black money from banks abroad so far has remained a promise.  Ali commented that the remark by Aamir Khan was not an option for fighting back.
