A BJP MP from Darbhanga in Bihar, Azad maintained that his fight is only against alleged corruption in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) and not against any individual.

"I hope the Prime Minister will listen to my plea and do justice. I will also ask margdarshak mandal to come forward and look into the issue," Azad told reporters.

Cracking the whip, BJP yesterday suspended Azad, who has been leading a campaign against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on alleged corruption in DDCA, charging him with indulging in anti-party activities and accusing him of 'colluding' with Congress and AAP to bring it into 'disrepute'.

Azad said that he had full 'faith' in Prime Minister Modi and would expect him to do "justice."    

"I fought against corruption in the DDCA outside the party. So I would like to know the action (suspension) is because of my raising voice against corruption," he questioned.

The action of the BJP Parliamentary Board to suspend Azad from the party's primary membership came after his press conference attacking Jaitley and subsequent acts of defiance both inside and outside Parliament.

A terse announcement suspending him came from the party headquarters but a detailed communication from the Board went to him listing his 'anti-party' activities in and outside Parliament, 'lowering the prestige' of the party and its office-bearers.
