New Delhi, Dec. 24 (ANI): The Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) will hold a meeting on Saturday to take a call on disgruntled Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament Kirti Azad’s membership to the Joint Secretary.
Confirming the development, DDCA Joint Secretary Dinesh Sharma said the Joint Secretary would sit on December 26 to take a decision over Azad’s membership to the DDCA.
Darbhanga MP Azad was expelled from the BJP following his tirade against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in connection with irregularities in the DDCA.
Azad on Thursday sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intervene into the matter.
He said he would seek a court-monitored probe into the alleged DDCA irregularities.
Speaking to reporters, he said he would file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in his personal capacity on the DDCA issue, and warned that people “will be in trouble”.
A day after his suspension, defiant Azad maintained that his fight was only against “corruption” in the DDCA and not against any individual.
He asked for “specific reasons” for the disciplinary action against him by the party.
Azad earlier said he would respond to the suspension notice today with the help of party leader Subramanian Swamy.
“Have received notice, will respond to it. Subramanian Swamy has told me that he will help me in drafting reply to the notice,” Azad told the media here.
Meanwhile, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has confirmed to ANI that he would assist Azad in replying to the notice.
“I confirm this that I will assist Kirti Azad on the draft notice from the party. I know him since when he was a boy. I was a good friend of his father. Further, I will say he is still member of BJP. I have every right to assist him. I don’t think party should lose such a honest person like him,” swamy told ANI.
The BJP had yesterday suspended its Darbhanga MP Kirti Azad. (ANI)
