Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ch. Anil Kumar said that what Delhi Congress has been insisting that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was the king pin of the Liquor Scam corruption has been proved correct with the Enforcement Directorate, in its charge sheet filed in the Special Court, stating that there was video call evidence of Kejriwal’s involvement to facilitate the liquor deal by taking Rs 100 crore kickbacks from the liquor cartels for the liberalized liquor policy, and part of this money was used for Aam Aadmi Party’s  Assembly election expenses in Goa.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that Arvind Kejriwal’s involvement in the liquor scam was clear when the new liquor policy was hastely scrapped to  restore the old liquor policy to give the retail trade to Government Departments as soon as the Lt. Governor ordered a probe into the liquor scam. He said that Kejriwal should immediately tender his resignation as Chief Minister as his involvement in the liquor scam has been established, though he has been trying to save himself by diverting the attention of the people with flimsy allegations.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that Kejriwal has been trying to project a clean image of himself by distancing from the scam, as the CBI, in its charge sheet, had named Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia as the No 1 accused in the scam, with jailed Minister Satyender Jain’s name also figuring in the scam. He said that the Enforcement Directorate’s charge sheet has finally nailed Kejriwal’s lie, and he would have to face the probe himself, as his involvement in the liquor scam has been established beyond any doubt.

 Ch. Anil Kumar said that ever since the Kejriwal Government came to power in Delhi, it has been involved in various corruption cases, with 80 per cent of the Kejriwal Cabinet and 38 MLAs facing various corruption and other charges, to betray the people, who elected AAP to power, expecting good and transparent governance. He said that Kejriwal’s focus has been in contesting Assembly elections in other States and the internal matters of Punjab, though Delhiites have been battling severe air and water pollution with dusty and broken roads adding to the pollution, and unemployment, price rise and economic distress ruining the lives of the common people.  He said that it was shocking that AAP has stalled the election of the Mayor twice in the MCD House meetings, in collusion with the BJP, to put the  governance of the MCD in disarray, with many categories of  employees not getting their salaries for the past many months.
