Sources said that Yadav had reached the house of the deceased BJP worker to express condolences without informing other farmer-leaders about his visit. Later on Twitter, he shared the picture of his meeting with the family.

The decision to suspend Yadav was taken in a meeting of SKM leaders held on Thursday.
