Suspended BJP leader Kirti Azad’s wife Poonam joined Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday in criticising the party for meting out “injustice” to her and her husband in the same way as it did to Sidhu.
There has been speculation that Poonam, the three-time national executive member of the BJP and now its Delhi unit spokesperson, can join the Aam Aadmi Party.
“What Sidhu ji is saying is fully correct. The party has done injustice to him. He won from Amritsar so many times, campaigned for the party nation-wide and was its Delhi in-charge. It meted out injustice to me and Kirti ji in a similar way,” she said.
Asked if she was going to join AAP, she said she would hold a press conference in a few days to speak about her next move.
Sources close to the Azad family said Kirti too is feeling “uneasy” in the party after he was suspended following his repeated attacks on finance minister Arun Jaitley over the alleged DDCA corruption when he headed it.
Though he is unlikely to quit the party as it will result in his disqualification as a Lok Sabha member, his wife might do so.
