New Delhi: Suspended Congress leader Sanjay Jha took to Twitter and stated that the Congress and the BJP are on the same page. He said that in the 2019 elections, Congress had proposed the abolition of APMC Act and of making agricultural produce free from restrictions.

Jha further added that the same thing was done by the Modi government in the farmers bills, so the BJP and the Congress are on the same page.

He wrote, "Folks, in our Congress Manifesto for 2019 Lok Sabha elections, we had ourselves proposed abolition of APMC Act and making agricultural produce free from restrictions. This is what the Modi government has done in the farmers bills. BJP and Congress are on the same page here".

The Congress on July 14 suspended its senior leader Sanjay Jha for “anti-party activities” and “breach of discipline”.

“Shri. Sanjay Jha has been suspended from the congress Party with immediate effect for anti-party activities and breach of discipline,” said a statement issued by Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee.

His suspension came hours after he tweeted praising then rebel leader Sachin Pilot. He tweeted, “First, Jyotiraditya Scindia. Now, Sachin Pilot. Who next? Watch this space!."

Earlier, Jha had suggested that Pilot be made the chief minister of Rajasthan and Ashok Gehlot be given a senior organisational role to revive weak states.

Back in June, Jha was removed as a Congress spokesperson, days after he wrote a newspaper article, which was critical of the party.
