Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP Vijay Bahadur Singh was on Wednesday expelled from the party in the wake of his remarks in support of Gujarat CM Narendra Modi, party Sources revealed.

BSP leader Vijay Bahadur Singh had defended Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s controversial 'puppy' remark.

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has come under sharp criticism from many political parties for saying in an interview that he had done "absolutely the right thing" during the 2002 Gujarat riots and described himself as a "Hindu nationalist".

He had also said that even if a "puppy comes under the wheel of a car, one feels sad" when asked whether he regretted the 2002 riots.

Bahadur had defended Modi’s statement, saying, “He just said in simple words that how even a dog being harmed would affect and hurt him. Some people are equating the dog with a minority community, how is that being proven by Modi’s interview?”
