Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal dismissed the allegations made by imprisoned conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar that he paid the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) millions of rupees, including Rs 10 crore to Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain as “protection money.” However, the BJP and the Congress party have slammed the Aam Aadmi Party over these allegations.
Meanwhile, all these claims, according to Mr. Kejriwal, are “false” and intended to divert the people’s attention from the Gujarat election and the Morbi bridge collapse, where more than 135 people lost their lives. “The BJP and the Congress party work together behind the curtains. All these claims are intended to divert the people’s attention,” said Mr. Kejriwal.
Furthermore, Delhi CM Kejriwal added that the Bharatiya Janata Party and its leaders is so desperate that they are using a jailed conman to plot fake news about Satyendar Jain. “They even tried to defame Mr. Manish Sisodia in the so-called liquor scam,” he further added.
Jailed conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar is accused by the BJP of giving 60 crore rupees to the Aam Aadmi Party, including ₹50 crore for a Rajya Sabha nomination. Additionally, the accusations are supported by a letter that Sukesh Chandrasekhar allegedly wrote to Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena, in which he alleges that he was “severely harassed and threatened” while imprisoned and that he was had to pay Satyendar Jain the “protection money”, who is also in Tihar Jail.
Moreover, these accusations have once again ignited the never ending war of words between the Aam Aadmi Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party. Subsequently, in the current election season in Gujarat and Himachal, this issue is being raised by the BJP against the AAP, questioning its anti-corruption agenda, calling it a hoax.
Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party, denying all the allegations, is calling the entire controversy a plot set by the BJP to divert the people’s attention and to defame the AAP.
