Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday heaped praise on party MP Kirti Azad for raising fight against corruption in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), adding that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley should follow veteran leader L.K. Advani’s example.
Sinha tweeted, “Kirti Azad-hero of the day. Humble appeal to friends. Avoid knee jerk reaction/coercive action against friend who’s fighting against corruption.”
In a series of tweets he said, “Have often quoted Newton’s 3rd Law. Feel that untimely action could boomerang. Sadly Party with a Difference has become Party with Differences.”
He further added, “As for FM, issue should be fought politically not legally. As advised by our dashing dynamic PM, our FM could follow Advaniji’s eg & come clean.”
Earlier, Jaitley had filed a criminal defamation complaint against Arvind Kejriwal and five other leaders of AAP for allegedly defaming him in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) controversy before a Delhi court, which took cognizance on his plea.
Jaitley’s action comes in the backdrop of attacks on him by Kejriwal and other AAP leaders over alleged irregularities and financial bunglings in Delhi’s cricket body, DDCA, of which he was the president for about 13 years till 2013.
