New Delhi:

A scuffle broke out between supporters of acting president of Bihar Congress Kaukab Quadri and ex-president Ashok Choudhary on Monday.

Last month, Choudhary was removed by the party high-command from the post of state party president.

After his removal from the post of BPCC chief, Choudhary had said that he felt "insulted" especially the way he was ousted from the post without any prior information.

On the other hand, Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee (BPCC) acting president Kaukab Qadri had claimed that there is no dissension in the party.

Talking to reporters here about Monday’s party meeting, Qadri had said, "There is no dissension within the party... Ashok Choudhary (former BPCC president) has also been informed about tomorrow's meeting. I hope that he would participate in the meeting".

"He (Choudhary) made a mistake while issuing statements... I had taken cognisance of his statements which was his emotional outburst," Qadri had said.

Stating that no leader or person is above the party, he had said "I will take disciplinary action against any leader- howsoever big he/she may be - who would make adverse remarks against the party or try to weaken it."
