Cong attacks Kejriwal over liquor scam

Cong attacks Kejriwal over liquor scam

New Delhi, Feb 4 (UNI) The Congress on Saturday launched a fresh attack at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over alleged liquor scam, and demanded his resignation along with two of his ministers- Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain.


“ED (Enforcement Directorate) chargesheet, which has surfaced publicly, clearly indicts Arvind Kejriwal in the liquor scam. At least Rs 100 crore kickback has been established.
A court took cognisance of the chargesheet on Thursday and allowed charges to be framed against all the accused. Congress demand immediate resignation of Kejriwal, along with the indicted Ministers--. Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain,” said Congress leader Ajay Maken while addressing a press conference at the party headquarters here.

He added, “Money trail also has been mentioned in the chargesheet, leading to advertisements in Goa elections (by AAP) and cash payments to volunteers to carry out surveys.”


The former Union Minister also alleged that concessions by the Kejriwal government to liquor traders have further caused huge loss to the exchequer.

Talking about ‘Lokpal’, Maken said, “Every day we see Kejriwal vs LG. In the special sessions of the Delhi Legislative Assembly, in the courts, on the streets, and on trivial issues. But have we ever seen Kejriwal or AAP protesting for Lokpal.”

“ In 2014, Kejriwal asked for the dissolution of the Delhi Legislative Assembly in favour of passing the Lokpal Bill. Where is that Bill now?,”he asked.


“Ever since Kejriwal came to power, the Lokayaukta, in its reports, has been flagging various debilitating constraints being faced by the Lokayukta in terms of its ‘independence’, ‘lack of powers’, ‘compromised financial autonomy’, ‘non-availability of any machinery for conducting investigations’. But all in vain,” he added.
