Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday ridiculed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for suspending its MP, Kirti Azad for raising voices against corruption.

“Kirti Azad’s fault was that he raised his voice against corruption. This has left the BJP utterly exposed. BJP is neck deep in corruption,” Kejriwal said in a tweet.

“There is no democracy in BJP. Honest voices are muzzled to protect corruption,” he said in another tweet.

The BJP today suspended MP Kirti Azad, who was in the line of fire for his tirade against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over the alleged scams in Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).

“Kirti Azad, Darbhanga MP, is suspended from party with immediate effect for his anti-party activities,” Arun Singh, BJP, National Secretary, said in a statement.

Azad had defied the party chief and went ahead with a press conference on Sunday highlighting corruption allegations linked to the DDCA of which Jaitley was the president for 13 years till 2013.
