Ahmedabad: BJP MP Kirti Azad said on Wednesday that it was unfortunate he had been suspended by his party for “speaking the truth” about corruption in Delhi’s cricket body.
“What anti-party activity have I done?” the three-time Lok Sabha member from Darbhanga in Bihar asked as journalists sought his reaction after the BJP announced his suspension for anti-party activities.
He said he had never targeted Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who for years headed the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), “although much of the wrongdoing took place during his tenure”.
Jaitley headed the DDCA for 13 long years until 2013.
Azad denied he was in collusion with the Congress or the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) which too have taken on Jaitley over the DDCA issue. “It is they who have taken up my issue.”
Asked about his future programme, a defiant Azad said: “See, what happens now. The fun starts.”
