The CPI-M West Bengal State Secretariat on Wednesday recommended summary expulsion of party MP Ritabrata Banerjee on charge of serious breach of party discipline, sources said.

The recommendation, however, was not publicly announced as it has to be ratified by the party Central Committee, sources said.

Communist Party of India-Marxist State Secretary Surja Kanta Misra refused to give details.

"You will come to know about the decision when it is publicly announced at the appropriate time. I have seen a lot of people come and go," he said.

Rajya Sabha MP Banerjee has courted controversy in the past. He was suspended by the party on June 2 for three months over his alleged lavish lifestyle.

The MP was also accused of spending Rs.69.25 lakh on travel expenses in a year.
