It has been nearly three weeks since Modi’s remarks, seen as condemnation of the assault and of Akash’s remarks justifying the same. It was expected that disciplinary action would follow against the MLA, who is the son of prominent BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya.
Swaran Singh was Defence Minister and he banged his car into a man driving a scooter. The next day Singh sent a member of his staff to their house and asked if they would like to register a police complaint against him since he was driving the car.
Modi’s remarks, made during a BJP Parliamentary Party meeting on Tuesday, was seen as a message against Akash, son of party general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, who was released on Sunday, five days after his arrest.
