BJP will not let AAP tarnish Jaitley’s image: Shah


New Delhi: Rubbishing all allegations against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as baseless in the DDCA issue, BJP president Amit Shah on Monday said the party would not let the AAP succeed in its conspiracy to tarnish Jaitley’s image.

All allegations on Arun Jaitley are baseless and away from truth. The entire BJP is standing by his side as a unit.

Stating that such a move of the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) would not be allowed to succeed, Shah said: “If AAP feels that with such ill-intended moves if would be able to tarnish his image, it would be like living in reveries.

Arun Jaitley ji has led his entire public life based on high standards and principles.

Shah also said attacking the senior BJP leader would harm AAP in the long run.

It is being alleged the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) gave out contracts to fake companies, paying them crores of rupees in cash, and had fudged the audit of accounts.

Kirti Azad, a former cricketer-turned- BJP MP, demanded a time-bound probe in the major financial bungling for years in DDCA by a court-monitored Special Investigation Team.

Jaitley on Monday filed a defamation suit against Kejriwal and sought Rs 10 crore in damages for accusing him of corruption when he headed the DDCA. (IANS)(Picture

BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday said that the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was “very necessary” and added that the government was working on building a consensus with stakeholders in the northeast.

Addressing the media here, Amit Shah also said that the government had brought the bill after much thought and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was holding consultations with various people to address the opposition to the issue.

“There are two sides of a coin. There are decisions that some like and some don’t… The fate of huge number of refugees can’t be kept hanging in the balance and we are firm on it,” he said.

Asked what would be the BJP’s stand if suggestions come to withdraw the Bill as it has created unrest in the entire northeast, Amit Shah said: “Home Minister is holding discussions with political parties. Discussion with some parties have already taken place. If consensus emerges, we will definitely move ahead but the Citizenship Bill is highly necessary for the country.”

The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014.
