Former MLA from BSP, Jitendra Singh Babloo who had joined BJP on August 4 under the presence of UP BJP Chief Swatantra Dev Singh has been ousted from the party on 10 August.
Jitendra Singh Is Accused Of Burning Rita Bahuguna’s House: BJP MP from Prayagraj, Rita Bahuguna Joshi had raised objections on the induction of Babloo in the party. She alleged that former BSP MLA Babloo, was involved in the torching of her house in July 2009, demanding the cancellation of his membership.
“In July 2009, when my house was set ablaze in Lucknow, he (Bablu) was in the forefront and he was found guilty during investigations,” Joshi, who was in the Congress at that time, said.
Further, Joshi had said that she would talk to the state and central unit president of the party in this matter and appeal to them to end his membership. She had also said that may be the party leaders were not aware of his criminal activities.
It is said that, Joshi’s house was set afire in 2009 when Mayawati was the chief minister of the state, by alleged BSP supporters protesting over derogatory remarks against the party chief.
Babloo, however, had said that he was framed in the case and that he was not even in Lucknow when the incident took place. “I demand a CB-CID inquiry,” he had said after joining Bhartiya Janta Party on August 4.
