NEW DELHI: Continuing its tirade against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday accused the Delhi Government of covering up the scams which took place under its regime, adding that it is least bothered about the core issues of Delhi.
“If they (AAP) want an honest probe, then he (Kejriwal) should resign. But they won’t do so. They just want to do drama and Delhi is fed up with this drama. Delhi wants delivery. There are many issues in Delhi, you are not bothered. Rather you are covering up the scams you have done,” BJP leader R.P. Singh told ANI.
Escalating his attack, Singh alleged that the AAP is creating a clash with the Centre.
“The AAP is deep neck in scams and they know police will call them and probe would be initiated in future….so they are trying to protect themselves. Enquiry is constantly going on in the Rs. 400 crore Jal Board scam and Rs. 300 crore number plate scam,” he added.
The BJP leader further stated if the AAP minister and the MLAs wanted to surrender, they would have gone to the police station and not to the Prime Minister’s residence.
“Why didn’t Kejriwal go to surrender himself? There is an FIR against him. He should resign and join the enquiry of the ACB,” he said.
As many as 52 AAP MLAs, who were detained along with Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia en-route Prime Minister Modi's official 7, Race Course Road (RCR) here yesterday, were released by the Delhi Police.
The ‘surrender’ march came after the president of the Ghazipur Vegetable Market Association submitted a complaint against Sisodia, accusing him of intimidating businessmen.
Sisodia yesterday accused the ruling dispensation at the Centre of interfering in the AAP Government's good work and offered to surrender before Prime Minister Modi.
Asserting that no one is above the law, the Delhi Police yesterday said they take strong action against anybody violating the law, adding that the AAP leaders would be released only under assurance that they would not again march towards the Prime Minister's residence in protest.
