New Delhi: Suspended BJP leader Kirti Azad came all guns blazing against party leadership for suspending him, saying party should explain specifically what his anti-party activities were.
“ Party should tell me specifically what my anti-party activities are? Party should mention which parties I have colluded with? I have been raising this issue for 9 year. AAP is 1 year old,” he said.
He exhorted PM Narendra Modi and senior party members to come forward and explain what his fault was. He also appealed the 'margdarshak mandal' to tell him his fault.
“It seems speaking against corruption is my anti-party activity,” he added.
He also said he had a lot to disclose but he didn’t want to embarrass anyone. He alleged that documentary proofs are being destroyed in DDCA.
He demanded that CBI must conclude probe in the DDCA scam within 3 months.
He said he would write to the party with help from Subramanian Swamy, asking why he was suspended.
The BJP on Wednesday suspended MP Kirti Azad, who has for the past week tormented Arun Jaitley by first levelling corruption charges against the finance minister and then daring him to hit back.
The decision was announced in the evening in a one-line release issued by the party and signed by general secretary Arun Singh. It said: “Because of anti-party activities, Shri Kirti Azad, Darbhanga MP, is suspended from the party with immediate effect.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Jaitley appeared to breathe easy after days. He hosted a session-end lunch in his chamber in Parliament for NDA MPs and journalists. The Rajasthani spread, carted from Jaipur, was organised within hours by the BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP, Ajay Sancheti.
Kirti had left for Ahmedabad in the morning, possibly anticipating the action. “Wait and watch what I do next. Now I will tell everyone,” he told PTI later.
The Darbhanga MP has for years been alleging financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association, helmed by Jaitley from 2000 to 2013, but the controversy blew up after Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal last Tuesday alleged that the CBI had come looking for the DDCA probe file when it raided his principal secretary.
