The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has expelled Jitendra Singh Bablu, who was inducted into the party last week, following a controversy after party MP Rita Bahuguna Joshi raised objection over his induction.
Jitendra Singh Bablu was inducted into the BJP on August 4.
Rita Bahuguna Joshi, a sitting MP from Allahabad, had accused Jitendra Singh Bablu of being involved in setting her house on fire in 2009. Bablu, along with the then SSP and SP, were booked in connection with the case.
Bablu, who was in the BSP in 2009, is accused of setting ablaze the house of Rita Bahuguna Joshi when she was the president of UP congress and was reportedly leading a massive agitation against the then chief minister Mayawati.
Rita Bahuguna had termed Jitendra Singh Bablu’s joining “unfortunate”, saying that she would meet PM Modi to apprise him about it.
Rita Bahuguna Joshi had joined the BJP in 2016.
