The party's latest salvo came on a day it distanced itself from Tomar saying Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was 'upset' with him, and referred his case to the party's internal lokpal. He may face expulsion, sources said.

"We have referred the case of Tomar to the party's internal lokpal. But we would also like to see the Delhi Police Commissioner probing the charges of false educational qualification against Union Ministers Smriti Irani and Ram Shankar Katheria considering police's new found energy," senior leader Sanjay Singh cited.

"There should not be different yardsticks to judge these issues. We will take up the issue of alleged academic discrepancies of Irani and Katheria," he added.

However, the party refused to answer a query on whether it was withdrawing Tomar's legal aide. A senior party leader said it will target both Irani and Katheria as well as a number of BJP leaders facing criminal charges.
