BJP has charged Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal that having failed to subvert defamation case against the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the courts, he has now entered into a conspiracy to defame him through the specially created unconstitutional enquiry committee to probe DDCA affairs by making public the proceedings of the committee.
Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, Vijender Gupta said that DDCA is constituted under the Company Affairs. It is clearly a subject lying within the jurisdiction of the Central Government. Kejriwal’s Government being a State Government cannot intervene in the matter.
Gupta warned that Kejriwal Government must not defame the Union Minister Jaitley through the back door of the Committee on DDCA. He said that the BJP will never allow such unfair and illegal practices. The Committee itself is unconstitutional because it violates the Rule of 264 of Legislative Assembly of NCT of Delhi, Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Buisness .
This Committee has been illegally working till date. Even the today’s meeting is unauthorized and need not have been called. Having initiated the new practice of making proceedings of the Committee public, it must now desist from following pick and choose policy. It must invite media for coverage in all the Committees.
Vijender Gupta said that the 237 pages report submitted by the former senior Delhi Government IAS officer, Chetan Sanghi neither mentions even once the name of Mr. Arun Jaitley nor does it give even the slightest hint of his wrongdoing or involvement in the DDCA affair. He had even complained to the then Union Home Secretary, Rajiv Mehrishi that the senior most AAP leaders were pressurizing him to prove Mr. Jaitley guilty in his report. It has already exposed the mind and working of the AAP leaders.
Leader of Opposition said that the on the one hand Bishan Singh Bedi has drawn onetime payment of Rs. 75 lakhs and Kirti Azad of Rs. 50 lakhs from DDCA and they have been drawing respectively Rs. 50,000/ and Rs. 37500/- P.M. from the Organization and have functioned its selector and coach, they are now playing in the hands of Kejriwal. They are defaming Mr. Jaitley as his tools.
