New Delhi: The Congress took a dig at the BJP over suspension of party MP Kirti Azad, saying that it was an illustration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dictatorial style of functioning.
The suspension of Kirti Azad from the Bharatiya Janata Party is nothing but a manifestation of the corruptionphilia that grips the party, Congress leader Randip Surjewala said in a statement on Wednesday.
It is yet another statement on Modi’s and BJP president Amit Shah’s style of functioning that is nothing but ‘my way or highway’, Surjewala said.
He also said that BJP leaders facing allegations were sheltered by Modi’s “immunity” and complainants against corruption were suspended.
“Is this what probity and accountability in public life is all about,” the Congress leader said.
The BJP on Wednesday suspended Kirti Azad, who has alleged large-scale corruption in Delhi’s cricket body when it was headed by now Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
