Kochi: Suspended Bharatiya Janata Party MP Kirti Azad on Sunday said he would continue to fight corruption in the Delhi and District Cricket Association.
Azad said he had sought an appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue and was awaiting a response.
“No one can stop me… I will go on fighting corruption,” he told reporters here.
“I am happy that the BJP is soon going to hold a parliamentary party meeting on this (issue). I have been in the party for 24 years now. I really don’t know what wrong I have done,” the BJP Lok Sabha member said.
“I have written 200 letters and 500 emails to (former DDCA chairman and present finance minister) Arun Jaitley. I am not raising this issue against anyone as my aim is to fight corruption,” Azad said.
The BJP leader said the Ferozeshah Kotla in Delhi was renovated at a cost of Rs.58 crore but bills and vouchers for only Rs.25 crore were available.
“If one wants to learn corruption, the best way is to join the DDCA,” Azad said.
As for a defamation case against him, Azad said it would help him prove his point.
The MP from Darbhanga in Bihar was suspended on December 23 for what the BJP called “anti-party activities” after he alleged corruption in the cricket association that was earlier headed by Jaitley for 13 years.
“After slaughtering the deer, they come out with gunny sacks filled with venison. Tribal markets in Chandel and Churachandpur districts openly sell deer carcasses.”
“The poachers had severed and secreted the heads with the tell-tale antlers and in Manipur the authority looks the other way despite frequent exposes in the local media,” Devika L. added.
Minister Javadekar said the onerous task should not be left to the forest department of Manipur alone and the need is to associate all sections with the project.
“The Centre is shortly coming out with an action plan on the protection of the lake, the endangered deer and development of the national park. Since these will help develop eco-tourism we seek cooperation from all sections of the people,” he said.
