BSP suspends MP Danish Ali for ‘indulging in anti-party activities’
In an official notice issued on Saturday, BSP said it has suspended its MP Danish Ali for indulging in anti-party activities.
Danish Ali, the Lok Sabha MP, who faced verbal abuse from a BJP leader on the parliamentary floor a few months ago, has been suspended from the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) led by Mayawati. The grounds for his expulsion cite "anti-party activity" as the primary reason for this disciplinary action.
In an official notice issued on Saturday, BSP said it has suspended its MP Danish Ali for indulging in anti-party activities. The notice seemingly addressed to Danish Ali read, “It was made clear to you earlier itself to not indulge in anti-party activities… You were given the ticket from the party on Deve Gowda's insistence who assured that you will always follow the party line. However, it seems you have forgotten the promises made by you while joining the party. Therefore, you are being suspended.” The notice did not cite any specific incident for the suspension of the MP.
Following objectionable remarks made by BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri against Danish Ali in Parliament, he engaged in talks with several prominent Opposition leaders. He also staged a solitary protest outside Parliament on Friday, advocating for justice for Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra, who has been expelled from the Lok Sabha.
"Decorum in Parliament died in September... it was bombed when Ramesh Bidhuri made those comments… Today, (Mahatma) Gandhi and Ambedkar are crying," Ali told news agency ANI earlier.
A significant political controversy unfolded following Bidhuri's comments during a discussion on the Chandrayaan-3 mission in September this year. The contentious remarks, aimed at Ali, who was accused by multiple BJP leaders of making derogatory statements about Prime Minister Narendra Modi to incite the South Delhi MP, resulted in a show-cause notice being issued to Bidhuri.
