Bhopal, July 9: A BJP corporator's husband was on Sunday suspended from the party for indiscipline after he stopped an MP and MLA from inaugurating some newly constructed roads in his wife's municipal ward.
Shyam Singh Meena, the husband of corporator Manphool Singh Meena, blocked the path of local MP Alok Sanjar and Huzur area MLA Rameshwar Sharma, also from the BJP, when the two arrived to inaugurate some roads in Kolar locality, party functionaries said.
They said that Shyam told the two senior leaders to turn back claiming that his wife had already inaugurated the roads in question.
Corporator Manphool Meena was by the side of Shyam when the incident happened, a video of which went viral on social media.
Party sources said that Shyam and MLA Rameshwar Sharma have reportedly been at loggerheads with the former alleging that the legislator was trying to take credit for developmental works initiated in the ward by his corporator wife.
"MP BJP chief Rakesh Singh has suspended the primary membership of Shyam for indulging in indiscipline on the basis of the video of the incident which appeared on social media and on the complaints made by the MP and MLA," said state BJP spokesman Rajnish Agrawal said.
