Patna/New Delhi, Feb 9 (IANS): Bihar's ruling JD-U today expelled Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi from the party, blaming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for orchestrating the episode.

"Manjhi has been expelled from the party. He has been indulging in anti-party activities," Janata Dal (United) (JD-U) leader KC Tyagi said today in Delhi. "All the things that happened were scripted. Operation Jitan Ram Manjhi has been orchestrated by (BJP president) Amit Shah," said the JD-U leader.

In Patna, JD-U leader Shrawan Kumar, who is considered close to former Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, told IANS that the party has also informed Governor Keshri Nath Tripathi about the party's decision that Manjhi has been expelled from the JD-U.

Nitish Kumar was re-elected as the JD-U legislature party leader on Saturday. Nitish Kumar will meet the governor with other leaders, said Tygai.

Manjhi, who is back in Patna after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi on Sunday, has announced that he won't resign and will prove majority in the State Assembly.
