KATHMANDU: The CPN-UML has taken action to remove Saraj Ahmad Farooqui, who secured a central membership position during the tenth General Convention in Chitwan from November 26-30, 2021.

However, the party remains tight-lipped about Farooqui’s status as a lawmaker.

Farooqui, initially elected as the top candidate from the Muslim community in the proportional representation list, had previously been engaged in foreign employment business.

Amid allegations of illicitly extorting money by falsely promising overseas opportunities, Farooqui tendered his resignation from the party’s central membership during a meeting at the party headquarters on Thursday.

While facing accusations of financial misconduct, the party has refrained from commenting on Farooqui’s parliamentary role.

UML Kapilvastu district chairman Dambar Sharma acknowledged the resignation from central membership but asserted that no complaints had been lodged against Farooqui.

“There was a general dispute about some financial transactions a while ago, which he claimed had been resolved at the local level. There have been no complaints against him. We are unaware of why the central committee asked him to resign,” Sharma stated.

Furthermore, the central party has not been provided with information explaining the reasons behind Farooqui’s resignation, Sharma added.

Farooqui, who is the son-in-law of the late Mirza Dil Saad Beg, murdered several years ago, has a close relationship with party Chairman KP Oli.
