"Will unveil sensational sex scandals involving party leaders and reveal behind-the-scenes details of the 1999 hijacking episode"

NEW DELHI: Former Delhi Chief Minister and suspended Bharatiya Janata Party leader Madan Lal Khurana on Thursday resigned from the party but not before threatening to "unveil sensational sex scandals" involving various individuals in the saffron party very soon.

The senior BJP leader, who was suspended by the party about a month ago, also declared that he had some very sensational information on the 1999 hijacking episode and would reveal details about it in the coming days. He also launched a scathing attack on senior party leader L. K. Advani accusing him of being the main impediment in the construction of a Ram temple at Ayodhya.

Stating that the alleged sex scandal involving senior BJP leader and general secretary Sanjay Joshi was only the tip of the iceberg, Mr. Khurana said he had information on "sex scandals" involving the so-called directors of the BJP who had turned the party into a private limited company. "When these details are revealed, which I intend to do in the near future, they would bring out the true face of these leaders who have ruined the party in recent years and brought it to such a sorry state. The sex scandal of Mr. Joshi would appear very small in front of what I intend to reveal next week," he said.

Stating that he would elaborate on his future plans in the coming days, Mr. Khurana said he had sent in his resignation to party chief Rajnath Singh.Saying that he was "very upset" with the conduct of Mr. Advani, the architect of the Ayodhya movement, Mr. Khurana said the senior BJP leader was to be blamed for the failure to construct the much talked about temple despite being in power for six years at the Centre.

Claiming that he had inside information about the 1999 hijacking episode, Mr. Khurana said he would reveal details of the behind-the-scenes activity at an appropriate time. "The conduct of Mr. Advani and the sex scandals involving party leaders was one of the major reasons for my decision to quit the BJP," he added.

Mr. Khurana, who has ended his five-decade-long association with the Jana Sangh and the BJP, said he had sent in copies of his resignation to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, RSS chief K. Sudarshan, and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Ashok Singhal. Mr. Khurana said he would not hesitate to launch an aggressive agitation against the ongoing sealing and demolition drive in the Capital if no relief comes from the Supreme Court on April 28.
