On Friday Ali sided with the opposition and slammed the expulsion of Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mahua Moitra as a Lok Sabha MP. He slammed the BJP led central government, saying its brute majority in the Lower House did not mean it could throttle the opposition.

The BSP is not a member of the rulling BJP-led NDA or the Opposition INDIA bloc. The BSP on Saturday suspended its MP Danish Ali for allegedly indulging in anti party activities. Ali has been representing the Amroha Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh since 2019.

In a statement issued by the BSP national general secretary Satish Chandra Misra, Ali had been warned by the party many times in the past not to indulge in anti party activities. The BSP said Ali had been working with HD Deve Gowda of the Janata Dal (secular) party. At that time, both the BSP and JD(S) were contesting together in the Karnataka state election. After the Karnataka election Ali was given a ticket from Amroha and asked to contest from there due to Devegowda’s insistence. Deve Gowda had said the party had decided to suspend Ali with immediate effect.
