Arvind Kejriwal to Will reveal biggest political scandal of independent India at 5 pm on Friday


Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that he will reveal what he termed was the ‘biggest political scandal’ of independent India at 5 PM on Friday in Delhi assembly.

Kejriwal exclusively told, “I’m not going to give too much away for now. Come to assembly at 5 PM on Friday, when I will start speaking in the assembly. You wouldn’t have quite seen or heard about anything like that before. It will be the biggest political scandal of independent India.”

The Delhi chief minister’s party colleagues have already begun challenging Indian TV channels on social media to broadcast live the assembly proceedings on Friday.

Arvind Kejriwal and his health minister Satyendra Jain had hinted on Tuesday hinted about this expose after the tax authorities reportedly served the latter a notice for alleged hawala charges. The chief minister had rubbished the charges made by the tax authorities.

Aam Aadmi Party sources said that their social media team will go ‘full throttle’ from Thursday in building a momentum for this expose.

Delhi government has been at loggerheads with the Centre’s BJP-led government over the differences on administrative powers since Kejriwal led his party to a historic win in the national capital in February last year. AAP had won 67 of the 70 assembly seats bringing the BJP’s overall tally in the assembly to just three.

Since then, Kejriwal has accused the central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi of carrying out vendetta politics against his government to ‘avenge’ the defeat in assembly polls.

The Delhi High Court had last month has declared that the LG Najeeb Jung was the real boss of Delhi administration prompting Kejriwal to challenge the verdict in the Supreme Court.

The High Court had said that the special constitutional provision Article 239AA dealing with Delhi does not “dilute” the effect of Article 239 which relates to Union Territory and hence, concurrence of the LG in administrative issues was “mandatory”.

It did not accept AAP government’s contention that LG was bound to act only on the aid and advice of the Chief Minister and his Council of Ministers with regard to making of laws by the Legislative Assembly under the Article 239AA and termed it as “without substance”.
