BJP MLA Karan Singh Tanwar, raising the issue during a
discussion under Special Mention, claimed that he has "proof
of the Minister's involvement in the scam", triggering
vociferous protests from the ruling side.
Finance Minister A K Walia, Health Minister Kiran Walia,
Social Welfare Minister Mangatram Singhal and PWD Minister Raj
Kumar Chauhan protested the "baseless allegations", saying no
Delhi Government Minister is involved in the functioning of
the civic body.
Tanwar, demanding a CBI probe into the allegations,
submitted some documents to Speaker Yoganand Shastri, claiming
them to be "proof of the scam."
Senior BJP leader V K Malhotra, later talking to
reporters, tried to distance himself from the allegations and
said "I have not gone through the papers."
