New Delhi: The Ministry of Home Affairs has formed a seven-member intelligence team to track activities of the Aam Aadmi Party leaders, official sources said.

The sources revealed that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, and leader Kumar Vishwas were on the radar of intelligence sleuths.

It has also come to notice that Home Minister Rajnath Singh wasn’t very keen to go ahead with the snooping but was forced to do so.

“Rajnath Singh doesn’t want to use IB resources for such activity but he has been told to do so by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” sources said.

Special eye on Kumar Vishwas

According to the sources, Kumar Vishwas may be the top target of the ministry as he is a soft rightist and is popular among the masses. Vishwas is extremely active on Twitter and has over 7 lakh followers. With an active and updated website called www.kumarvishwas.com, he provides his followers with various mediums of communication with him.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader is also close to RSS cadres.  Last year, a few comments made in the organization’s praise by Vishwas had put AAP members into a state of confusion.

“If a particular organisation talks in favour of Muslims, is it communal? If an organisation speaks in favour of a larger majority, does it mean it is communal? You could have ideological differences on many levels. I don’t agree with many of their acts. But can you dismiss them? Can you dismiss the fact that they are a disciplined party,” Vishwas had said.

His popularity amongst the masses is seen as a major reason why the Central government is keen to keep an eye on Vishwas’s activities.

Double Standards

Recently, the Aam Aadmi Party had come under intense criticism by opposition parties for buying an ‘eavesdropping technology’ to help the Anti-Corruption Bureau in intelligence gathering.

“The state government’s launching of such a snooping exercise without any public knowledge is an attack on the independence of the citizens and a step ahead of his circular on media gag already stayed by the Delhi High Court”, Delhi BJP State President Satish Upadhyay had attacked the AAP then.

Questioning the intent of procuring such a high-tech surveillance equipment, Congress leader Ajay Maken had said, “Will this infrastructure be used to nab corrupt officials or will it be used to settle their own political scores?”.

It is ironical that the BJP which was highly opposed, more so critical of AAP’s move to augment Anti-Corruption Bureau’s working mechanism, has now adopted the same measure to snoop on the Aam Aadmi Party.

The integrity of our politicians is undoubtedly questionable, but the BJP can be asked the same question which Maken asked of the AAP; is the Ministry of Home Affairs being used to nab corrupt officials or to launch the BJP’s political vendetta against AAP?

Kejriwal exposed as a liar: BJP leader

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, VOA
  • Arvind Kejriwal apologised to Bikram Singh Majithia
  • BJP leader says that this apology established himself
  • BJP also alleged that Kejriwal did nothing while state aced so many problems

A day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal apologised to former Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia for alleging that he was involved in the drug trade, the BJP Delhi unit on Friday said he has exposed himself as a “liar”.

The BJP also alleged that he was doing nothing even while the people of the national capital were facing a number of issues due to sealing.

Addressing a press conference here, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Delhi unit President Manoj Tiwari said: ” What we have been saying for long has been proved today. He is a liar. He has apologised to Majithia for making false allegations against him.”

“He is on his way to apologise to (Union Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley ji and (Union Transport Minister) Nitin Gadkari ji for making false allegations,” the BJP leader said. Kejriwal is facing defamation cases in court for levelling allegations against Jaitley and Gadkari.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief on Thursday apologised to the Shiromani Akali Dal leader in Punjab for making allegations of involvement in the drug trade, following which the latter said that he will withdraw a defamation suit filed in an Amristar court.

Tiwari, who represents the northeast Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha, accused Kejriwal of misleading the people over the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital.

BJP MLA Vijender Gupta accused the AAP chief of only rendering “lip service” on the sealing drive and urged the Chief Minister to hold an all-party meeting with the Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring committee overseeing the drive.

“Since December last, Kejriwal is only doing lip service on the issue of sealing drive. He has done nothing to stop it,” Gupta, the Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, said.

He said that though Lt Governor Anil Baijal cleared the file for notifying 351 roads in the capital on February 8, the matter is still pending. “Why hasn’t he (Kejriwal) notified the 351 roads in the last 45 days?” Gupta asked.

BJP leaders are calling this apology a gimmick.

He also accused Kejriwal of hatching a conspiracy to mislead people by playing the emotional card of apology. Gupta warned the Monitoring Committee members not to act outside the law and said: “If the monitoring committee acts against law, then the BJP will oppose it.”

“We are going to inform the three municipal corporations of Delhi not to follow the commands of the Monitoring Committee if it goes against the law,” he said. “The MCDs should approach the court and also make Kejriwal a party,” the BJP leader added. IANS
