Kejriwal is 'unique CM' who focuses on 'allegations, conspiracy theories': BJP

Updated: Sep 01, 2016 08:18 IST

New Delhi [India], Sept.1 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday went hammer and tongs at Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal, saying he is a 'unique' chief minister who doesn't do any work besides focussing on 'allegations and conspiracy theories from morning till night.'

The comments from the saffron party come a day after Kejriwal sacked Minister of Child Welfare and Social Justice Sandeep Kumar after receiving 'objectionable' Compact Disk (CD) against him.

"The reasons questions are asked from Arvind Kejriwal and his party is because they are the ones who set the standards and may be his promises that 'we will ensure that we do a complete analysis, a background check and bring the finest of people into politics'," BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli told ANI.

"And when the opposite has happened, they sack their own party members. Look at for what their ministers have been sacked-one with a forged degree, another one in a corruption case and now somebody in a sex scandal. And for anything you will ask a question to Mr. Kejriwal, he will always blame Prime Minister Modi or the BJP. So, is the BJP responsible for the sex life of a minister and the sex scandal he is involved? This is amazing. Mr. Kejriwal is only interested in politics of allegations, excuses and blame game," he added.

The BJP leader further said that Kejriwal is a unique Chief Minister, who has no department and, therefore, does no work.

"Either, he should get down and start working or apologize to the people of Delhi," he added.

The Delhi Chief Minister confirmed the news of sacking of Sandeep Kumar on his official Twitter account.

"Recd "objectionable" CD of minister Sandeep Kr. AAP stands for propriety in public life. That can't be compromised. Removing him from Cabinet wid immediate effect (sic)," tweeted Kejriwal.

Kumar was the youngest minister in Kejriwal's cabinet. He was a member of the Aam Aadmi Party and represents Sultan Pur Majra in member of the Sixth Legislative Assembly of Delhi.

In October last year, the Chief Minister had sacked Asim Ahmed Khan, who was minister for food and environment. He had been caught asking for bribe.

In June, Jitender Tomar resigned as law minister after he was accused of faking his college degree. He was replaced by Kapil Mishra, who, within two months, was replaced as law minister by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

In December, AAP MLA Somnath Bharti was arrested after he surrendered in connection with the attempt to murder and domestic violence case, filed by his wife. (ANI)
