Lok Sabha MP Kirti Azad.

BJP’s disciplinary committee chairman Ganeshi Lal, who was looking into allegations of indiscipline against suspended BJP MP Kirti Azad, said Wednesday that suspension of the Darbhanga MP was “justified” and added that he had recommended action against him. He, however, said the final call in the matter would be taken by the party’s Parliamentary board, which is meeting in the next few days.

“Azad can’t have the liberty to go on criticising the party publically. His suspension was justified and so were the disciplinary proceedings. I have gone through the showcause notice and his replies,” he said. Lal was here to oversee state BJP president Satpal Satti’s election as national observer. Asked if he has recommended Azad’s expulsion, he said: “In my report, I have suggested action as per the party’s constitution. Now, it’s up to the Parliamentary board to decide. I can’t comment more,” he added.

“He can quit the party, resign from Lok Sabha and make whatever allegations he wishes to. Launching a tirade against party leaders while staying within the party is not acceptable,” he said.
