The day Bharatiya Janata Party state president Swatantra Dev Singh issued a show-cause notice to its Loni lawmaker Nand Kishore Gujjar for alleged anti-party statement, the legislator released a letter written to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath about threat on his life by “party leaders”.
BJP spokesman Alok Awasthi said here on Sunday that on the directive of party president, party’s general secretary Vidyasagar Sonkar had issued a show-cause notice to Gujjar for his alleged anti-party statements that appeared in the newspaper.
“He has been asked to submit a reply within a week,” Awasthi said.
Last Wednesday, a case was registered against Nand Kishore Gujjar for thrashing a government official, His personal secretary was also named in that case.
The next day, Gujjar gave a statement that some party leaders were trying to frame him in a false case through corrupt officers.
Interestingly, the day the show-cause notice was issued, Gujjar released a three-page letter written to the Chief Minister about threat to the Loni lawmaker’s life. He alleged that some corrupt officers and party leaders were planning to kill him.
The said letter was written on November 29.
In the letter, Gujjar mentioned food inspector Ashutosh Singh who, he alleged, misbehaved with him.
The lawmaker said that Singh even claimed that he was very close to the Chief Minister and tried to brow beat him.
“Some senior party leaders were behind this drama,” the lawmaker alleged.
He even mentioned about an attack on his life and how he escaped miraculously.
In June 2018, some persons had opened fire on the vehicle of Nand Kishore Gujjar in Sahibabad. Reports say that there were four motorcycle-borne miscreants who fired shots at the car of Gujjar. The security personnel attached with Gujjar returned the fire.
Luckily, BJP MLA from Loni suffered no injuries.
The MLA has a habit of remaining in limelight as in October this year he wrote a letter to Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar demanding that Salman Khan’s reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ be taken off air.
In his letter, the BJP legislator alleged that the “show was promoting obscenity and vulgarity and was unfit for family viewing”.
“The show is against the cultural ethos of the country and highly objectionable intimate scenes are a part of it. Couples of different communities are being made to become bed partners, which is unacceptable.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on one hand, is trying to make India regain its lost glory and, on the other, such shows are demeaning the country’s culture,” he wrote.
