NEW DELHI: Stepping up attack on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over alleged corruption in DDCA during his tenure, the AAP today posed more questions to him, saying it would continue to raise its voice against graft in the state cricket body.
AAP leader Sanjay Singh alleged that the Finance Minister has sent a legal notice to him and his colleague Ashutosh "through" Lokesh Sharma, who is Managing Director of private firm 21st Century Media, and said that they are ready to face one thousand such legal notices and will not be deterred from exposing "corruption" in DDCA.
Jaitley has strongly rejected the allegations calling them a propaganda technique of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to deflect attention when he himself was in the "dock" following a CBI raid in Delhi Secretariat.
Addressing a press conference here, Singh accused Jaitley of trying to "suppress" alleged corruption which had taken place in Delhi and District Cricket Association under his watch by sending legal notice.
Yesterday, the Aam Aadmi Party had posed five questions to the minister, saying that they would continue to query him on the alleged corruption in the DDCA. The AAP leader claimed that they are getting papers pertaining to DDCA's alleged corruption from several persons across the country.
Following a CBI raid in Delhi Secretariat in connection with charges against Kejriwal's Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar, AAP has been claiming that the central agency carried out the searches to target the AAP chief and was looking for a file relating to alleged graft in DDCA. Since then the party has been demanding resignation of Jaitley from the Union Cabinet.
