Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on April 22 expelled Assam youth president Angkita Dutta from the party for six years for ‘anti-party activities’.
The order was issued after Dutta levelled a series of allegations against Indian Youth Congress (IYC) President Srinivas BV and his IYC secretary in-charge Vardhan Yadav accusing them of “harassing” and “discriminating” against her for the past 6 months.

A top source of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) told ANI that APCC on April 20 issued a show cause notice to Angkita Dutta and gave her two days’ time for her reply.
