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”.

      The new trend is the consolidation of Non-BJP and Anti-Modi elements in politics. It is also true that lot of immoral wealth is doing its role behind the screen. This may spell doom for the BJP. Modi-Shah team should diffuse authority to other talented members who had served the party wheartedly for years. Amit Shah and Modi have either not read the signals or are ignoring the writing on the wall. Nobody can stop the march of time from satya yuga to Kali Yuga. Man proposes God disposes. Chanakya neethi says, "It is better to have a wise enemy than a foolish friend". If Kirti Azad is honest and serious about the allegations then he should go through a court of law instead of creating chaos through media. We will support

        Kirti Azad's suspension is an internal matter of the BJP. Why Congress party and AAP are bothered about it? Is there any need for them to offer comment? Similarly BJP should not be concerned about internal matters of the Congress and AAP.
