A youth Congress leader was sacked from his post today for allegedly gathering crowd for Nationalist Congress party (NCP) convention.

North district president Tanvir Khatib was removed from his post on Monday for anti-party activities by the high command after he allegedly gathered crowd for NCP state convention, a party source said.

"We sacked him because he had managed to get crowd for the NCP meeting on January 30 in South Goa, which was attended by Sharad Pawar," Goa Pradesh youth Congress committee president Sankulp Amonkar told reporters here. Amonkar admitted that Khatib was not even served show cause notice.

"I had sent the proposal to our national leader Ashok Tanvar who gave the go ahead," he added. GPYCC also dissolved six other blocks for being dormant over a large period of time.

NCP's state convention, which gathered a large crowd, had ruffled feathers in the Congress party. NCP national general secretary Praful Patel addressing the gathering had cautioned Congress not to take their support for granted in the state.

"Khatib was getting associated with NCP leaders. May be he was selfish and wanted to grow fast," Amonkar clarified replying to the reasons behind the sacking. The sacked leader was heading youth Congress' north district wing and was in the core of the youth Congress.

Amonkar today announced that Khatib was replaced by another leader Jitesh Kamat. He said that the entire Goa youth Congress unit would be restructured within next four months after holding organisational elections.

As far as the common man knows is that the NCP was a breakaway faction of the Congressmen, who separated purely only on one issue that is they had opposition to a foreign born national, taking over as the Prime Minister of India. Now that they have no opposition for this, one wonder for the very existence of this NCP. Is it just to bargain for the plum Ministerial births?
