Agra:  The Samajwadi Party has expelled its Lok Sabha candidate here, Sarika Baghel, and her husband Devendra for calling party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav a “budda” (old).

Party general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav said Maharaj Singh Dhangar would be the new candidate for the Agra City seat.

Devendra Baghel had visited a traffic police office Friday afternoon. During a row with an official, he insisted that auto-rickshaws should be allowed to ply on the Mahatma Gandhi Road.

This is when he referred to Mulayam Singh Yadav in a derogatory manner.

Within hours, the Samajwadi Party hit back. A stunned Devendra Baghel said he would remain loyal to Mulayam Singh Yadav.
