The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

New Delhi: Delhi BJP on Fri­day ex­pelled the for­mer mayor, Sarita Chaud­hary, and her hus­band and also sacked Mehrauli dis­trict pres­i­dent Azad Singh on charges of in­dis­ci­pline.

The cou­ple had in­dulged in a pub­lic spat at the party’s state head­quar­ters on Septem­ber 20 where Singh had al­legedly slapped Chaud­hary in full pub­lic view. The com­mit­tee that probed into the in­ci­dent later found that there were com­plaints of in­dis­ci­pline against the for­mer mayor.

“Set­ting up an ex­am­ple, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Ti­wari ex­pelled the two lead­ers on Fri­day,” a party func­tionary told TOI. The in­ci­dent was con­sid­ered as a se­ri­ous in­dis­ci­pline on the part of the cou­ple, as it took place just af­ter a meet­ing at Delhi BJP of­fice in which Union min­is­ter and Delhi as­sem­bly elec­tions in charge of the unit, Prakash Javadekar, was also present.

Ac­cord­ing to the party lead­ers, Singh and Chaud­hary were is­sued sep­a­rate let­ters, signed by Delhi BJP of­fice in-charge Girish Sachdeva.

Af­ter the in­ci­dent, Singh was re­moved from the post of Mehrauli dis­trict pres­i­dent while Chaud­hary, who headed the party’s Beti Bachao cam­paign in the cap­i­tal, was also re­moved from the post.
