Cong suspended Natwar to save Sonia: BJP

via published on August 9, 2006

NEW DELHI: The BJP today said the Congress had suspended former External Affairs Minister Natwar Singh just to save its president Sonia Gandhi who is also allegedly involved in the Iraqi oil-for-food scam.

Talking to reporters, BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar said, “Desert the man when the charges come to Sonia, that is the typical Congress culture but the real question is about the Congress coupons which were traded.”

Taking a serious view of Singh’s outbursts and rebellious attitude against the party, the Congress last night suspended him from the primary membership of the party for indiscipline.

The party also decided to serve a show cause notice on Singh, asking him to explain the notice for a privilege motion given by him in the Rajya Sabha against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the leak of the Justice R S Pathak inquiry authority report. The show cause notice also asked him to explain why he should not be expelled from the party.
