A BJP leader from Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh has been suspended and served with show cause notice after he criticised the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government over “rampant corruption” through Facebook.
The State BJP chief Nandkumar Singh Chauhan has issued the suspension order to Raj Chaddha on Monday after his Facebook post stirred up a row.
“Mr Chief Minister, Corruption is at its peak in the state. Condition of hospitals is intolerable. Please improve this or sack lakhs of party workers like us who sacrificed everything to fulfill the dream of Pt Deendayal Upadhyay,” Chaddha had written
Infuriated by the post, the BJP hit back with a suspension and a show cause notice, the Hindustan Times reported.
However, Chaddha escalated his attack after the suspension order saying, “O God! Save my party. It is beholding in high esteem those who are working against it and showing its door to those who sacrifice for it.”
“They say party is superior to an individual and the country is superior to party but they consider themselves the party and the country,” Chaddha wrote on his Facebook page on Monday.
Chaddha is a former district BJP president in Gwalior and also president of Gwalior Vyapam Mela Authority. His comments huge response on his FB page to support his charges.
Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson in Madhya Pradesh Rajneesh Agrawal has said none of the individuals was above the party, hence action against the leader was justified.
