Only targeting corruption, not party, says Azad

Only targeting corruption, not party,  says Azad

BJP MP Kirti Azad has submitted reply of the show-cause notice served to him by the party for indulging in anti-party activities, asserting that he had been pursuing the issue of “corruption” in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), which has no links with his party.

Azad, who has continued to attack Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over the DDCA affairs, said “the DDCA is cricket matter and has no relation with party. I didn’t take the name of (Finance Minister ) Jaitley or any body else in the party."

He noted that he had also told party chief Amit Shah and BJP general secretary (organisation) Ram Lal on December 18 that Jaitley was not deputed by the BJP to be the DDCA head.

As Jaitley chose to be the DDCA president, he was opening himself to all associated risks that are entitled in running an organisation and that he could not claim the shield of party position if he got implicated in any mismanagement, fraud and irregularity, Azad said in his reply.
