BJP issues notice to Jethmalani
New Delhi, Nov 26 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party Monday issued a show cause notice to its suspended leader Ram Jethmalani, asking him why he should not be expelled from the party for six years.
"The parliamentary board discussed the anti?party actions of Mr. Ram Jethmalani. The parliamentary party found appropriate the decision of party president Nitin Gadkari to suspend Jethmalani for his indiscipline and anti?party activities," BJP leader Ananth Kumar told reporters.
"We have also sent him a show cause notice to tell why he should not be expelled from the party for six years," he said.
Jethmalani was suspended by the party Sunday evening after he raised questions about party leaders Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley's objection to the appointment of a new Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) chief.
He had earlier called for resignation of Gadkari, who is facing charges of irregularities in his business dealings.
