There was no corruption cases in DDCA under the helm of Arun Jailtey ji,” BJP national spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain told ANI here.

The Delhi Government on Sunday also alleged the CBI officials are threatening  Principal Secretary to Delhi Chief Minister Rajendra Kumar and asking him to reveal the names of DDCA (Delhi and District Cricket Association) officials who met Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Rajendra Kumar who has been accused for criminal conspiracy and has a case registered against is being questioned by the CBI.

He has been accused of setting up various companies to give work contracts without tenders which has been a huge loss to the Delhi government.
