New Delhi: In a huge set back for Congress, the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) on Wednesday issued notice to former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit, asking her to join the investigation into water meter scam case.
The notice states: “It appears that you (Sheila Dikshit) are acquainted with facts and circumstances of case and is required to join investigation.”
ACB chief MK Meena said the case was registered in 2014 in the Anti Corruption Branch, adding that the Delhi Jal Board had bought 2.5 lakh water metres and there are allegations that there was no proper tendering and tender conditions were changed so that the personal companies are benefitted.
Congress is reportedly contemplating in projecting Dikshit as party's CM candidate for 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections.
The Congress stalwart is also under the scanner for her alleged role in the water tanker scam worth Rs 400 crores.
Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung forwarded AAP-led Delhi Government`s complaint of water tanker scam against Dikshit to the ACB last month.
