The Bharatiya Janata Party unit in Maharashtra on Thursday suspended eight rebels, including a sitting Member of Legislative Assembly, from the party for six years for contesting against official candidates in the October 13 assembly elections.

"Natu (Guhaghar), Ujwal Keskar (Kothrud) and six others who are contesting against official candidates of the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance have been suspended from the party for six years," said State BJP spokesperson Madhav Bhandari.

Natu, sitting MLA from Guhaghar, is contesting against Sena's Ramdas Kadam.
