New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday came in support of BJP MP Kirti Azad, saying he was suspended just for raising voice against corruption.
“What was Kirti Azad’s fault? He just raised voice against corruption. BJP has been completely exposed. BJP is neck-deep in corruption,” he wrote on Twitter.
“There is no democracy in BJP. Honest voices are muzzled to protect corruption,” he added.
The Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday suspended party MP Kirti Azad for taking on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the alleged DDCA scam.
According to reports, BJP Parliamentary Board took the decision to suspend him.
Reacting on the suspension, Kirti Azad said he had been fighting against corruption.
"It is party's misfortune that a person who has been fighting against corruption for 10 years has been removed with allegations of anti-party activities. What anti-party activities? Did I demand anybody's suspension, did I called Arun Jaitley thief?" he said.
He said he had not received the notice as yet.
