Delhi water tanker scam: Arvind Kejriwal hits out at PM Modi; asks why no FIR against Sonia Gandhi, Robert Vadra

New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday night hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi shortly after the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) of the Delhi Police registered a FIR in connection with the Rs 400-crore irregularities in the water tanker distribution management system during the Sheila Dikshit government.

On micro-blogging website Twitter, Kejriwal launched a scathing attack on the Prime Minister. In a series of tweets he wrote:

Kejriwal's recation came shortly after ACB chief MK Meena said that they had received a complaint from Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra that their government got an inquiry conducted into the alleged irregularities that took place during the Sheila government.

The previous government had committed irregularities and incurred a loss of around Rs 400 crores so accordingly action might be taken, Meena quoted Mishra as saying.

 

Meena further said, "We have also received a complaint from BJP leader Vijendra Gupta, stating despite receiving report of irregularities no action was taken to cancel the contract that caused huge loss to the government," ANI reported. 

"We have registered a case under various sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act and Indian penal Code (IPC) and we will take action accordingly," he added.

He, however, said both Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Dikshit could be questioned in this connection. "I hv given a comprehensive report with evidence.

"No BJP leader is even talking about it. Why BJP protecting Shiela? Vijender Gupta sent a one page letter to LG no evidence. LG has received 15000 such letters in his tenure. how many he forwarded to ACB?" tweeted Mishra.
