The BJP's Jammu and Kashmir unit today expelled six more workers for "anti-party" activities, taking the number of such expulsions over the past four days to 28.
A majority of those expelled from the primary membership of the party have filed their nomination for the Urban Local Body (ULB) polls as independent candidates against BJP's official nominees.

Similarly, the party expelled three workers from Jammu - Naresh Gupta for contesting as independent candidate, and Ludharmani Sharma and Jaswant Singh for anti-party activities, he said.
BJYM activist Rinku Chauhan has also been expelled from the BJP for campaigning in favour of an independent candidate, the spokesperson said.
