New Delhi, [India], Aug. 29 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress leader Sheila Dikshit of suppressing facts highlighted by a fact-finding committee related to the Rs. 400 crore water tanker Scam.

"It was mentioned in the reports filled by the fact-finding committee of the Aam Aadmi Party. Now, the Aam Aadmi Party itself is diluting the report filed by the committee. When I asked this question in the Vidhan Sabha, then the facts in the report were concealed while answering my questions. So, somewhere, the Delhi government and Sheila Dikshit together are trying to suppress this matter," claimed Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta.

Gupta demanded that the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) should not show any leniency in this matter and should arrest the people involved as soon as possible.

"Arvind Kejriwal, Sheila Dikshit, Kapil Mishra and others should be interrogated, and the people responsible should be immediately arrested. The contract of the companies involved in this corruption and being saved by the AAP government should immediately be cancelled," he said.

The ACB gave a questionnaire to Dikshit on Sunday, talking about which, Dikshit said there were 18 questions and that it would take her some time to answer.

"ACB hasn't set a time limit for me to answer the questionnaire, there are a lot of details that I don't remember. ACB questionnaire has 18 questions, it will take me time to answer them," she told the media here.

The AAP government had in June last year constituted a fact-finding committee to probe the irregularities in the hiring of some 385 stainless steel water tankers by the Delhi Jal Board in 2012 when a Congress government was in power. (ANI)
