BJP MP Kirti Azad has been alleging major financial bungling in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) for years.


'Dear Arun Jaitley not scared of impotent people': BJP MP Kirti Azad tweets 'my a/c hacked'

New Delhi: Few minutes after on of the tweets of Kirti Azad on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley terming him as 'impotent' started making headlines on Monday night, the BJP MP cleared the air by saying that his Twitter account has been hacked.

The hacked tweet reads: “I was visited at home by so many agencies to take precaution against threat to my life. Dear @arunjaitley darta nahin hoon napunsako se.”  

Notably, the hacked tweet comes amidst an uproar between Jaitley and Azad who has been alleging major financial bungling in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) for years.

Earlier in the day, senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley filed a defamation suit against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and sought Rs 10 crore in damages for accusing him of corruption when he headed the DDCA. However, Kejriwal retorted that he and his Aam Aadmi Party cannot be intimidated.

Even as a combative Jaitley defended himself in parliament against the corruption charges, Kirti Azad demanded to know why the minister had not sued him.

Even as BJP president Amit Shah defended Jaitley, saying he was respected for his honesty and integrity, Kirti Azad demanded a time-bound probe by a court-monitored Special Investigation Team into the DDCA affairs. He said a CBI inquiry would take too much time.

"I have been raising the issue of corruption in DDCA since long," the former India player told IANS, hours after Jaitley filed the case against Kejriwal.

"This was my issue which was hijacked by the Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress for political gains. In fact, they have raised this issue on the basis of my letters.

"So the defamation case should have been filed against me. It is unfortunate that the defamation case was not filed against me," Azad said.

The Congress, which faced Jaitley's wrath in the Lok Sabha, sought a Joint Parliamentary Probe instead.

Jaitley refuted the allegations against him, saying the DDCA when headed by him gave a "proper" cricket stadium to the national capital. He said 43 corporate boxes were created and tickets were sold in advance for 10 years to raise financial resources.

Azad had yesterday addressed a press conference in the national capital but did not take the name of Arun Jaitley, under whose charge as president of DDCA he claimed there were financial bunglings.
