Action taken against Kejriwal not wrong: Digvijay
Gwalior: Congress General Secretary Digvijay
Singh on Saturday said he saw nothing wrong in the I-T department
sending notices to social activist Arvind Kejriwal.
The Income Tax department had first sent a notice to
Kejriwal in 2006-07 and this was again sent now, Singh told
"There is nothing wrong in the action taken against
Kejriwal," the senior Congress leader added.
Kejriwal was issued notices by the Chief Commissioner of
Income Tax (CCIT) Delhi for clearance of his dues of Rs 9.27
lakh on August 5.
The dues had accumulated over the alleged violation of
bond clauses under which Kejriwal, an Indian Revenue Service
officer, had gone abroad on study leave for two years between
November 2000 and 2002.
When the Delhi CCIT had written to him in 2007 and 2008
for clearance of his dues, Kejriwal had responded that they
may be waived.
The department issued a notice on August 5 eleven days
before Anna Hazare was to launch his indefinite fast in the
capital against corruption.
Hazare and other civil group members have attacked the
issuance of notices as part of the government`s "dirty tricks
department" action and as one that came under instructions
from political bosses.
