BJP Mardarshak mandal chief Veteran leaders LK Advani today met at Murli Manohar Joshi’s residence, a day after BJP suspended Kirti Azad. Senior leaders Yashwant Sinha and Shanta Kumar were also present there.
Soon after the meeting the party elders decided to call for an inquiry commission to be appointed to look into the Arun Jaitley issue vis-a-vis the DDCA allegations levelled against him, sources said.
The party elders met after Azad called on them to come forward and look into the issue at a press conference in the morning today. He said, “I hope the Prime Minister will listen to my plea and do justice. I will also ask margdarshak mandal to come forward and look into the issue.”
At the early morning press conference in Ahmedabad, Azad also called on PM Narendra Modi to answer his questions and explain to him the reasoning behind his suspension.
“I want to tell PM Narendra Modi that he should come and say what my fault is. I’ve received a notice from the party and will respond to it. Subramanian Swamy said he will help me draft it.”
He added, “I want to know if I have been suspended because I raised voice against corruption in DDCA. Because I also raised my voice against a lot of other cases of corruption in BCCI etc. I want specific answers.”
“I will write to the party by evening. The BJP should specify which party I colluded with,” he said.
