Indian National Congress (Jagjivan)

Congress (Jagjivan) was a political party in India. It was formed in August 1981, after Jagjivan Ram was expelled from the Indian National Congress (Urs). Ram had rallied an All India Congress Committee (U) meeting of his own, expelling party leader Devraj Urs from the party. As a direct consequence Ram was expelled from Congress (U).[1]
