Jammu: Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) on Monday expelled former Jammu and Kashmir legislator Haji Abdul Rashid from the primary membership of the party for alleged anti-party activities.

Rashid, who had won assembly election in 2014 from Sopore constituency of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Congress ticket, was among the founding members of the DPAP which was formed by former chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad in September last year after ending his five-decade-long association with the grand old party.

Azad, chairman of DPAP, ordered the expulsion of Rashid from the primary membership of the party for anti-party activities, DPAP general secretary R S Chib said in a statement here.
