Kejriwal and his Government have old ties with scams: BJP

Thursday, 18 April 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva on Wednesday charged that Arvind Kejriwal himself and his Government have an old relationship with scams.

Making this claim in a news conference, the BJP also said the Kejriwal Government has set record of maximum corruption in shortest tenure. Between 2015 and 2021, scams involving fake companies exposed former minister Satyendra Jain’s corruption and land scams, which unveiled the first layer of corruption in the Kejriwal government in 2020, it said.

Highlighting some of the alleged scandals, the BJP said in 2018, Arvind Kejriwal’s associate Surendra Bansal’s company was implicated in a fake bill scam of P.W.D.  In 2020-21, two companies defrauded the Delhi Jal Board by depositing bills into private company accounts.

In 2021-22, Arvind Kejriwal’s government formed a cartel of liquor companies, and now even Arvind Kejriwal himself is in jail for the game they played, BJP charged.

Sachdeva said even as Delhiites have not forgotten these scams new scams involving arbitrary allocation of contracts to companies in revolutionary education and health services have come out.

When we raised questions about these, Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj attempted to mislead and divert attention, claimed and said “Today, I once again ask questions to the Arvind Kejriwal government and hope that the Kejriwal government and the Aam Aadmi Party will respond directly without diverting the issue.

The education department awarded the contract to establish School of Excellence to Boston Consulting Group, owned by Seema Bansal, who is affiliated with “AAP” in Punjab in 2021, despite their high bid - People want to know why was the contract awarded to the company with the higher bid, and what is the relationship between Seema Bansal and Aam Aadmi Party, Sachdeva said.

There are big claims about the health model, but there is corruption here too : the case of counterfeit drugs in Kejriwal government hospitals is well known - People want to know what is the relationship between the certification failed company Tirupati Mediline Pvt. Ltd. and its owners Mudit Gupta and Shubham Gupta with the Aam Aadmi Party, he asked.

Sachdeva said Kejriwal and his team should respond to these two questions immediately or our workers will soon go to the Delhi Secretariat to get answers.
