As Kapil Mishra Meets ACB, AAP Chooses To Blame BJP For The Problem
New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party which was virtually stunned due to the corruption allegations levelled by its sacked minister Kapil Mishra, came out on Monday with a different kind of defence. AAP leaders Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Dilip Pandey put up a brave face and tried to defend Kejriwal in a press conference held on Monday. Instead of answering to the allegations levelled against party Chief Arvind Kejriwal, leaders chose to point out which CM is corrupt in BJP and how Kashmir is burning.
Sacked minister and AAP leader Kapil Mishra on Sunday alleged that he has seen Health Minister Satyendra Jain handing Rs. 2 crores in hard cash to CM Kejriwal. As Kapil Mishra was levelling allegations in a media conference, Kejriwal was strategizing with his close aides and leaders. After the meeting, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia spoke to the media, but when asked about Mishra’s allegations, he said that they are not even worth answering.
On Monday too they followed the same strategy. The leaders chose to blame centre as usual in the whole episode. AAP leader Sanjay Singh alleged that BJP government in the Centre is working to stifle opposition and targeting AAP. Raising nationalism the leaders also brought Kashmir into the picture and criticised BJP government that it failed in addressing in addressing internal and external threats to the country and is solely concentrating on decimating AAP. They also alleged that the BJP is trying to repeatedly to implicate AAP in fabricated cases. They also alleged that Kapil Mishra is acting on behest of BJP.
Meanwhile, Kapil Mishra met ACB officials on Monday morning and stated that he furnished all the information needed.
The question on everyone’s mind is, why the Delhi Chief Minister, who in 2012 announced that AAP has formed an internal Lokpal, if anyone has any allegation of corruption against him, they can directly go to Justice AP Shah and make a complaint. And if Justice Shah says there is a prima facie evidence against Arvind, he will have to resign from the party, has not done it yet.
As of now, all the leaders who expressed their dissatisfaction against party’s way of functioning and called for introspection rallied behind Kejriwal. Alka Lamba, Adarsh Shastri, Somnath Bharti, Rajesh Rishi and even Kumar Vishwas stood beside Kejriwal after he faced first corruption charge against him.
After meeting the ACB officials, Kapil Mishra told the media that he would be meeting CBI officials in the evening to reveal the details of the alleged 400 crores water scam.
