Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said that Kejriwal is a `unique` chief minister who doesn`t do any work besides focussing on `allegations and conspiracy theories from morning till night.`
"The reasons questions are asked from Arvind Kejriwal and his party is because they are the ones who set the standards and may be his promises that `we will ensure that we do a complete analysis, a background check and bring the finest of people into politics`," Kohli said.
Kejriwal had on Wednesday said that he had received an "objectionable" CD on Kumar and there cannot be any compromise with propriety in public life.
Soon after the action against the legislator, Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has "zero tolerance" towards any such act and action was taken within half-an-hour of receiving the CD.
The BJP and Congress mounted an attack on the Kejriwal government over the purported "sex CD" involving Kumar.
Kumar is the third minister who has been removed or forced out of the cabinet by Kejriwal since the formation of the government in February 2015.
Jitender Tomar was asked to resign as Law Minister in June 2015 after he was accused of forging his college degree. In October last year, Asim Ahmed Khan was removed as Minister for Food and Environment following allegations of taking bribe from a builder.
