Ahmedabad: Gujarat government on Wednesday accused Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal and other party members of not paying the road toll at three places during his tour of the state to verify development claims of Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
"Kejriwal and other state leaders of AAP have skipped toll tax payment at three place, moving off with his entire cavalcade," Gujarat government spokesperson and Finance Minister Nitin Patel said.
"He did not pay the toll at Varahi toll booth in Patan district and Surajbari and Samakhiyali in Kutch district," Patel alleged.
"Former Gujarat MLA from BJP, Kanubhai Kalsariya, was also travelling with him. They did not stop their car even when the toll-booth employee asked them to do so," he claimed.
Reacting to the allegation, AAP`s state convener Sukhdev Patel said, "They should first check their own history before making such allegations against us. They took Vitthal Radadiya, accused of showing a gun to toll-booth employee for asking the toll tax, in their party," he said.
"They even made his son minister in their cabinet, so they have no face to make such allegations," he said further.
