The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on 28 May 2013 expelled senior lawyer and MP Ram Jethmalani from the primary membership of party for six years over breach of discipline.

In a letter to Jethmalani, BJP general secretary Ananth Kumar on 28 May 2013 asserted that the party’s parliamentary board had taken an undisputed decision to expel him from membership of the party.

Some of the facts Responsible for his expulsion

• Ram Jethmalani had criticised senior party leaders Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley for their complete ignorance of relevant facts for opposing the appointment of the new CBI director.
• Earlier, he had also demanded the resignation of party president Nitin Gadkari following charges of corruption.
• In November 2012, just a day after he questioned his party's stand on the appointment of the new CBI director, the BJP had suspended Ram Jethmalani from the party with immediate effect.
