Expelled BJP veteran and former External Affairs Minister Jaswant Singh's MLA son Manvendra Singh was suspended from the BJP for campaigning in favour of his rebel father who is contesting the Barmer Lok Sabha seat as an Independent.

Party state president Ashok Parnami ordered the Sheo MLA's suspension on directives from the party high command and also served him with a show cause notice. The party Chief Mr Singh has also expelled Manvendra from the party national executive, a party state spokesman said here this evening.

Mr Parnami has also written letter to BJP legislature party leader and Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to take stern action against the MLA.

His father Jaswant Singh had already been expelled from the party for contesting election against its official candidate Col Sonaram.
