New Delhi: Cracking the whip, BJP President Nitin Gadkari on Sunday suspended a defiant Ram Jethmalani from the party with immediate effect for daring it to act against him on the CBI chief's appointment issue, saying it was "gross indiscipline".

A meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Board has been convened for Monday at 4.30 pm to take a call on his expulsion, party spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain told reporters here.

"Our party president Nitin Gadkari has taken cognizance of Ram Jethmalani's statements and his challenge that no action can be taken against him and has suspended his membership of the party with immediate effect," he said.

Jethmalani invited the BJP wrath after attacking the party for criticising the appointment of new CBI director Ranjit Sinha.
