NEW DELHI: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday suspended MP Kirti Azad, who was in the line of fire for his tirade against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over the alleged scams in Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).
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.
