‘Kejri has nexus with hawala traders’

Indi Asian News Services

New Delhi, May 19: Claiming another expose against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, suspended AAP leader Kapil Mishra Friday alleged a nexus between his former boss and people involved in hawala transactions, a charge the ruling Aam Adami Party (AAP) has denied.

Mishra, who was sacked as Minister and later suspended from the party, asked the Chief Minister to step down to ensure a fair probe into the allegations. He cited a “false video” that was retweeted by Kejriwal Thursday to back his allegation.

The video purportedly claimed that Delhi businessman Mukesh Kumar gave Rs 2 crore as donation to the AAP in 2014. Denying his allegations, AAP spokesperson Sanjay Singh told a press conference that the party has followed all norms and legal procedure in accepting political donations. “All transactions were carried out through banking channels and no cash or back-door transactions were involved,” he said.

He accused the BJP of using the Central Bureau of Investigation, Income Tax department, Enforcement Directorate (ED) and police against AAP leaders. “Delhi Police has crossed all limits in their investigations against us; they have not event left Somnath Bharti’s dog,” the AAP leader said.

Singh claimed that no AAP leader has committed any kind of mistake. “Had any of our leaders been involved in any wrongdoings, he would not have been let off by police,” Singh said.  He said the former Chief Election Commissioner had praised the party for being the most transparent in accepting political donations.
