Azad's suspension unfortunate, should be revoked: Shatrughan Sinha

BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha on Tuesday opposed his party's decision to suspend fellow parliamentarian Kirti Azad saying it was not giving a "good message" to people because the "perception" was that he was fighting against corruption and urged the party to revoke it.

In an oblique message to the top party brass, Sinha, who has been critical of their decisions over a host of issues, said if they decided to punish him for mistakes he had not made, then it will remind him of a soothsayer's prediction that he would change his party once.

"I hope, wish and pray it does not come true," he said with a laugh.

In an interview, he called Azad "a worthy son of a worthy father" and also supported the veterans, including L K Advani, who have questioned the leadership following the Bihar debacle.

"I found it very unfortunate that Azad, a worthy son of a worthy father, was suspended in this way. What has the general perception gone out? That he was talking about corruption. This is the perception."
