Expelled JD-U leader Sabir Ali out of BJP too
Saturday March 29, 2014 6:17 PM, IANS

The Bharatiya Janata Party Saturday cancelled the membership of Sabir Ali, a day after he was accepted in the party fold, amid protests from within.

"The membership of Sabir Ali stands annulled from the BJP," party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said, adding party president Rajnath Singh took the decision after holding discussions with party leaders and workers.

Ali joined the BJP after being expelled from the Janata Dal-United.

BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi Friday openly expressed dissent over BJP's decision to accept him in the party.

"Terrorist Bhatakal friend join BJP...soon accepting Dawood..." Naqvi had tweeted.

There are allegations on social media that Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yaseen Bhatkal was arrested from Sabir Ali's house. Police or the home ministry have, however, not given any such information officially.

Ali said Saturday he was innocent and said he would quit politics if his involvement is proved.

He challenged that the BJP can set up a committee and hold an inquiry to investigate the allegation against him.

This is the third time open dissent has been expressed within the party over inducting a member.
