BJP suspends Ram Jethmalani

BJP Party spokesperson Shahnawaz hussain told media a short while ago that Ram Jethmalani has been suspended with immediate effect and the party will discuss his expulsion in its Parliamentary Board meeting on Monday.  A defiant Ram Jethmalani on Sunday had dared the BJP to act against him for going against the party line on the issue of appointment CBI director, saying "nobody has the guts to take action against me".
Jethmalani, an eminent lawyer and Rajya Sabha MP, who had recently demanded BJP president Nitin Gadkari's resignation in the wake of charges of alleged dubious funding of the latter's Purti Group, said many in the party shared his views, but "few had the capacity" to express their views openly. He, however, clarified that his views on Sinha's appointment were his own and not that of the BJP
