Jethmalani suspended

New Delhi, Nov. 25 (PTI): The BJP today suspended Ram Jethmalani with immediate effect for daring the party to act against it on CBI chief Ranjeet Sinha’s appointment issue, saying it was gross indiscipline.

A defiant Jethmalani, an eminent lawyer and Rajya Sabha MP, who had recently demanded party chief Nitin Gadkari’s resignation in the wake of charges of alleged dubious funding of the latter’s Purti Group, had said “nobody has the guts to take action against me”.

Addressing a news conference here, BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said: “Jethmalani’s remarks are meant to help the Congress.”
