Bangalore: BJP has sacked the treasurer of the Karnataka unit, Lehar Singh Siroya, for his attack on party stalwart LK Advani.

Siroya, an aide of former chief minister and Karnataka Janatha Paksha supremo BS Yeddyurappa, in an open letter had alleged that Advani had compromised on corruption whenever it suited him.

BJP state unit president Prahlad Joshi on Friday suspended him from the party with immediate effect and relieved him from the post of treasurer.
The party dismissed Siroya`s allegations against Advani as "false" and "baseless".
