"Yadav has been expelled from the party for indefinite period," Bihar Congress president Ashok Chaudhary said.

He said the decision to expel Yadav from the party was taken by Gopalganj District Congress (DCC) president Raj Kumari Gupta after the former failed to reply to the show cause issued to him.

Chaudhary said another Congress leader Dasai Chaudhary, who had accompanied Yadav to met Narendra Modi, has also been issued show cause by Vaishali district Congress president and appropriate action would be taken by the district chief.

State Congress media in-charge Prem Chand Mishra said that Yadav, who had unsuccessfully contested from the party ticket from Bettiah Lok Sabha seat, has been shown the door for "gross indiscipline."

"In comparison with Rahul Gandhi, I strongly believe that Narendra Modi has much better qualities to become Prime Minister of our country," Yadav had told media after meeting Modi in Gandhinagar on Friday.

"Narendra Modi is a powerful leader and today our country needs a powerful leader like Modi as Prime Minister," he had said.

"Who is afraid of Sonia Gandhi? Is Sonia Gandhi running this country ? This country is being run by Manmohan Singh and tell me how many people know that Manmohan Singh is our Prime Minister. Whereas every child in our country knows Narendra Modi," Yadav had claimed.
