New Delhi: The BJP on Sunday said there is no mention of Arun Jaitley in the report of the three-member panel set up by the Delhi government to probe DDCA affairs and sought an apology from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his allegations against the finance minister.

Talking to reporters here, BJP spokesperson MJ Akbar said that Kejriwal had sought to target Jaitley by alleging that the Central Bureau of Investigation team that raided the office of his principal secretary had gone through a file relating to the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) but noted that the inquiry report does not talk of Jaitley.

“Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal should apologise to Arun Jaitley. He should apologise publicly,” Akbar said.

He said the inquiry committee had been set up by the AAP government and there was no allegation against Jaitley.

“There is no mistake by Jaitleyji and all mistakes by Kejriwalji (in blaming him). Kejriwal himself will be in the dock,” he said, adding: “You cannot run the government on the basis of showmanship.”

Dismissing suggestions that the panel had not gone into the accusations against individuals, Akbar said the panel’s mandate had been “to prepare summaries of irregularities, if any, by DDCA, its officials and members”.

BJP secretary Shrikant Sharma attacked Aam Aadmi Party and also the Congress over their demand for Jaitley’s resignation.

It is the old habit of AAP to tells lies, sell them and then wriggle out. They have a habit of throwing muck at others.”

He said Jaitley had a long and distinguished public life and nobody had raised fingers at him.

Sharma said the Kejriwal government had written in its cabinet note that office of his principal secretary was searched by the CBI while Kejriwal had been telling the media that his office had been searched.

“Their only intention is to raise noise and that too on falsehood,” he alleged, and added that people of Delhi had begun to “hate” him.

Sharma also attacked Congress over the National Herald issue saying that its top leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi were on bail in the case.(IANS)

Modi government betrayed farmers: Kejriwal.

The Modi government has stabbed farmers in the back by telling the Supreme Court that it cannot implement recommendations of the M.S. Swaminathan Commission which the BJP promised to do so in 2014, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

Addressing a farmers rally here at Jantar Mantar, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also slammed the Centre’s crop insurance scheme as a “fraud” and demanded that it be scrapped.

“Soldiers at the borders and farmers at thier farms are in distress. It’s a sad state of affairs. The BJP has dishonoured the promises it made in 2014,” Arvind Kejriwal said.

Thousands of farmers from across the country marched from Ramlila Maidan to Jantar Mantar in the heart of the capital seeking loan waiver and higher crop prices and warning political parties not to ignore their plight.

Reminding the BJP’s promise vis-a-vis the Swaminathan Commission, Kejriwal accused the ruling party of going back on its election promise.

“They have filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court and said they can’t implement it. There can’t be a greater betrayal than this. This government has stabbed farmers in the back,” he said, asking the government to take back the affidavit.

He warned that if it failed to do so, farmers would teach the saffron party a lesson in the 2019 elections.

Demanding loan waiver for farmers, he also said that they must get fair price for their produce.

“They are not begging but fighting for their rights. Once their loans are waived, they won’t demand it again. The government should also buy the farmers’ produce at appropriate price.”

He blasted the government’s crop insurance scheme.

“This is not an insurance scheme but it is BJP’s ‘kisan daka yojna’ (plunder farmers scheme). This must go and the money paid by farmers be returned. Instead, the government should start a compensation scheme for farmers.”
