Hours after the BJP suspended its Lok Sabha MP Kirti Azad, the Congress said the ruling party was taking action against those fighting corruption.

“The suspension of Kirti Azad from the BJP is nothing but a manifestation of the corruption-philia that grips the BJP. It is yet another statement on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah’s style of functioning that is nothing but ‘my way or the highway’,” said Congress communication department head Randeep Surjewala.

He said while people charged with wrongdoing — Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Chief Ministers Vasundhara Raje, Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Raman Singh — were “sheltered by the Prime Minister’s immunity”, those who complain “against corruption are suspended”.
