3 BJP leaders expelled for misconduct
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.
