Wait and watch what happens next: Kirti Azad after suspension from BJP

New Delhi: Hours after he was suspended from the primary membership of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on disciplinary grounds, cricketer-turned-politician Kirti Azad said it was the leading party’s “misfortune”, warning it of consequences in the coming days.

In a one-line statement, the BJP said Azad was suspended for his “anti-party activities.”

The suspension order read: “Over the past few months you have breached party discipline and conducted anti-party activities. Inside and outside Parliament you conducted yourself in a manner that amounts to indiscipline and anti-party activities. You made several statements to carry out a false propaganda. So the parliamentary board has suspended you from the party membership.”

Reacting to his suspension over alleged “anti-party activities”, Azad said in Ahmedabad: “If I raise the issue of corruption, it’s called anti-party activity. I have always supported Prime Minister’s slogan ‘na khaaoonga na khaane dunga’. This is BJP’s misfortune that they have suspended me. Now you will see what happens next. Just wait and watch.

“I have always lived a life with high moral values and the real fun will begin now,” Azad added.

Azad – who has alleged massive financial irregularities in Delhi’s cricket board – had called for a CBI inquiry in the scam in the Lok Sabha on Monday, a day after he relased a video in a much publicised press conference despite BJP president Amit Shah’s instructions to avoid going ahead with it.

The reaction to Azad’s suspension was spontaneous, especially on Twitter, where the people raised questions over the lack of internal democracy in the BJP.

Here are some of the reactions on Azad’s suspension:
