New Delhi: BJP Delhi Pradesh President Satish Upadhyay and MP Dr. Udit Raj have said that there is connivance between Smt. Sheila Dikshit and Shri Kejriwal to cover up corruption and this was the basis of alliance made between both the parties on 25th December, 2013.
BJP leaders said that during the preparation for Commonwealth Games in 2010 the case of diversion of the SC development fund by the then Congress Government of Delhi had come to light but due to connivance between Congress Governments in Delhi and at Centre the misappropriation was suppressed and the people of Delhi and the country especially the people of Scheduled Castes could not know where this fund was spent and whether this money was returned to the SC fund.
They further said that the former Chief Minister has been claiming that whenever any concrete case of corruption by Smt. Sheila Dikshit will come up before him then he will take immediate action. But there is great difference between prophecy and practice of Shri Kejriwal and today we are presenting the proof of connivance between Shri Kejriwal and Smt. Sheila Dikshit.
Kejriwal came to power on 25th December, 2013 and the Secretary of Central Home Ministry called for report on the SC/ST welfare fund from Delhi Government. The letter regarding this case clearly shows that the Home Ministry and the Central Social Welfare Ministry have been demanding for the related file for the last three years but the then Sheila Dikshit Government did not reply at all.
Shri Kejriwal has been talking about taking action against the corruption by Smt. Sheila Dikshit again and again and remained in power for about 45 days after 30th December. But he remained silent on the misappropriation and embezzlement of SC welfare fund. Had Shri Kejriwal desired then he could have instituted case of corruption against Smt. Sheila Dikshit and her cabinet only on the basis of this case.
Upadhyay said that a delegation of BJP will meet the Central Home Minister Shri Rajnath Singh in this connection and will demand that the CBI enquiry should be ordered into the misappropriation and embezzlement of the aforesaid fund and the silence of the Congress and AAP Governments on it.
