Aam Aadmi Party MLA, Colonel Devinder Sehrawat, denied jantakareporter.com’s report labelling him part of the group, which had allegedly fallen out with the leadership.
A report carried by jantakareporter.com had said how ‘once foot soldiers of the AAP, four legislators – Asim Ahmed Khan, Jitender Singh Tomar, Colonel Devinder Sehrawat (retd) and Pankaj Pushkar – now sit disaffected and disillusioned in the ongoing assembly’s winter session.”
Taking strong objection to this report, Col Sehrawal said, ” It’s absolutely incorrect. I’m neither disaffected nor disillusioned with the goings on in the assembly. Because I have given two questions which was listed on the day the proceedings could not be carried out. Besides that, I’ve given two private member bills.
“I must be the rare legislator, who has given a bill on mobile tower. It’s a complete act made out and the Delhi government is examining it. The hard copies will be handed over to the assembly today. I’ve also made a plan on airport area improvement. It’s a plan which has been seen by the chief minister, the Lieutenant Governor and the PWD minister.”
Sehrawat also added that the Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, had asked him to show his plan on airport area improvement to the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari because the whole of south Delhi will benefit from the work he’s already done.
“The problem with me is that I’m a little bit of a closed person, so I’m not able to show the works I’ve done. Thanks to my initiative, Delhi will soon have its first Sainik School. I met the defence minister and told him that Delhi kids, who were becoming bouncers can become armed forces officers. I’ve done all the leg work and got the draft approved by the chief minister. I’ve done other work related to freeing government land from encroachment. I have nothing to do with all the people mentioned in your report, ” Sehrawat added.
Col Sehrawat, with 20 years of experience in the Indian army and an IIM-Ahmedabad alumni, had won the assembly elections from Delhi’s Bijwasan constituency in February this year.
