After reports that the BJP was contemplating disciplinary action against its MP, Kirti Azad, for raising corruption allegations against the Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, his wife has reportedly been removed from the censor board’s panel.
According to a report published on News18 website, Poonam claimed that her name had been removed from the censor board’s advisory panel.
Information and Broadcasting ministry had sent the final list of 108 people, which did not include Poonam’s name. According to reports, she was approached by the I&B ministry in November to join the panel.
Interestingly, the I&B ministry is currently being headed by Arun Jaitley, who Azad had accused of forging documents during his time as the DDCA president.
Azad, on Sunday, rubbished Jaitley’s claims that he was not aware of the alleged corruptions in the DDCA. He had released an 8-minute-long video of 2012 AGM, where both Azad and one more member were seen challenging Jaitley over rampant corrupt practices in the cricket body, which he headed for more than a decade.
