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)

  • 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
