New Delhi, Dec. 23 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday finally delivered a blow to disgruntled MP Kirti Azad by suspending him from the party over the charges of being involved in ‘anti-party activities’.
“Darbhanga BJP MP Kirti Azad has been suspended from the party for anti-party activities,” Arun Singh, BJP National Secretary said in a statement.
The decision of suspending Azad was taken by the BJP Parliamentary Board.
The BJP had earlier said that action would be taken against Azad for embarrassing the party in connection with the alleged corruption prevailing in DDCA.
“Party democracy doesn’t give you the right to slander and then get prodded by the opposition in Parliament. And then, you embarrass the government in Parliament. Through tweets, you provoke the leader and this entire episode amounts to gross indiscipline,” BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh told ANI.
“It’s time for action. It is my feeling, because it’s not giving a good name to the party. Because, this indiscipline is not giving a good signal to the party cadre,” he added. (ANI)
