The BJP today issued a showcase notice to Darbhanga MP Kirti Azad, asking him to explain within 10 days why he should not be expelled from the party after he targeted Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over alleged irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).

BJP sources described the notice, which accused Azad of “indiscipline” and “anti-party” activities, as a standard follow-up to the MP’s suspension.

      Kirti Azad will definitely be expelled because he raised his voice against corruption in places where top BJP leaders and ministers are allegedly involved. And Modi will not tolerate any fight against corruption in such illegal manner. The unanimous decision of "Na Khaunga, Na Khane Dunga" Party would in all likelihood will be to expel Kirti Azad for national interest !!

          शत्रु को कितने दिन दिए हैं जो एक साल से बीजेपी के ख़िलाफ़ बोल रहा है और बिहार में लालू, नितेश, सोनिया, राहुल की तारीफ़ कर रहा था. बीजेपी, शत्रु से क्यों डरती है, यह तो आरएसएस का भी नहीं. आरएसएस भी चुप है, यह कोई बहुत बड़ा राज़ हो सकता है.

            Had Jaichand not helped Ghori, history of India could have been different. Despite having a very large numbered military, Siraj-Ud-Daula was defeated in the Battle of Pley in 1757 as his army didn't support him at the battleground because of Mir jafar. The traitors like Zamindars and worthless Maharajas were a main reason for the unsuccessful first war of independence in 1857. If Kejriwal is a patriot then the first thing he should have done is to take action on the corruption charges he had levelled during the 2013 embly election

              Amit ji Request you to expel Azad, the Bollywood joker from Patna and the rootless IAS offficer who got elected just because of Modi's charisma. BJP has little to gain by carrying these boils on its rear side. Discipline is paramount. Democracy can wait. Narayanan

                BJP is a hypocritic Jumla and Jhoothi party. Nothing except 'Bhashans' is expected.

                  All politicians with letter 'K' in their name are proving to be NaMo's nemesis.. L.K.Advani, A. Kejriwal, Nitish Kumar , Kirti Azad and HardiK Patel. BJP should be beware of all Ks. Letter 'K' is jin'ks'ed

                      Such steps against outspoken MPs are only further exposing the party's already revealed underbelly . Talk on honesty is just a rhetoric and Kirti's fault is his courageous forthrightness. Anyway, no point sitting in judgment. Let the law takes its own course. Honest are always the ones who remain on the right side of those in power

                          With the number of impending suspensions, BJP might lose its majority if it expels anyone. Shotgun, RK Singh and Bhola Singh are already in the line of fire.
