PIL against Arvind Kejriwal for `false affidavit`
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Wednesday will hear an PIL against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal alleging he had "suppressed the actual figures of property owned by him".
The PIL filed by NGO Maulik Bharat Trust said that in an affidavit filed before the Election Commission (EC), Kejriwal had not disclosed the actual amount of his property "to ensure he is not perceived as someone who possesses crores of rupees".
The PIL will come up for hearing before a division bench of Chief Justice N.V. Ramana and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw. It claimed that Kejriwal conducted "blatant illegalities" in the affidavit by hiding his "correct socio-economic stature".
All the candidates filing nomination papers are required to furnish affidavit to EC with details of the actual cost of property and any investment that they have made.
