CBI raid on Kejriwal

New Delhi: A criminal complaint against the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was dismissed by a Delhi court. The complaint alleged that the CM instigated the voters to take bribes from other political parties. Although he still asked them to vote for AAP.

Metropolitan Magistrate Babru Bhan dismissed the plea seeking prosecution of Kejriwal, saying that no offence was made out against him.

“The accused (Kejriwal) has not offered any gratification to the voters (to vote) in favour of his party. He has merely stated that allurements are generally offered by some parties, if offered this time, do not refuse the same but vote in favour of his party.

“He himself has not offered any gratification in lieu of casting votes in favour of his party,” magistrate Bhan said in his order.

The complaint was filed by Ikrant Sharma, who alleged that the AAP leader by making such a statement violated the model code of conduct and instigated the public to accept bribes from politicians.

The complaint was filed in February 2015, the month Kejriwal led his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to a sweeping win in the Delhi assembly elections. His party won 67 seats out of total 70 seats in Delhi state assembly.(IANS)

The BJP on Monday held Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal responsible for the death of a sanitation worker in a drain saying that the government was playing with their lives as they are not given protective gear.

“This is not the first time that such an incident has happened. Due to the negligence of the government, sanitation staff goes for cleaning sewers and dies there after inhaling toxic fumes. They are never saved even after rescue operations,” Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters here.

His remarks come a day after a sanitation worker choked to death after he got trapped inside an underground drain while cleaning it in north Delhi’s Jahroda area.

The work of cleaning the drain was being carried out by the Delhi government’s flood control department.

“Sanitation workers are our helpers and Kejriwal government is playing with their lives,” he said.

Highlighting the deaths of sanitation workers in Delhi in the past few years, the BJP MP from the North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency said that in September 2018, five sanitation workers died while in August 2017, 10 died inside sewers.

“Kejriwal is responsible for the deaths of sanitation workers who die while cleaning sewers and the investigating agencies should take action against him,” he said.

Attacking Kejriwal, Tiwari said, “During the last three to four years, more than 60 workers have died.”

A senior Delhi Police official said that it has registered a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code over the death of the sanitation worker.

The sanitation worker has been identified as Kishan, 37, a resident of north Delhi’s Wazirabad area.
