AAP sharpens attack on Sushma, calls for immediate sacking
Batting for a legislation on conflict of interest, the party also demanded that ministers in the Union government and their immediate family members should also declare their pecuniary interests.
“Now, it has come to light that Lalit Modi offered directorship to Swaraj Kaushal. He is the beneficiary of the legal fees from Modi. There should be an independent probe and the External Affairs Minister should be immediately sacked.
“The Centre should ask its ministers to make their pecuniary interests public and there should be a strong conflict of interest law in the country,” party spokesperson Raghav Chadha said. The party also attacked the BJP for the poor functioning of Municipal Corporations of Delhi, which are being controlled by the Centre, following the remarks in the CAG report, which was tabled in the Delhi Legislative Assembly on Tuesday.
“Around Rs 35 crore were given to the South Delhi Municipal Corporation for the treatment of dengue and malaria. But only Rs 18 crore were spent. Who will take the responsibility for the people who have died and suffered,” AAP’s Delhi unit secretary Dilip Pandey said. He said that around Rs 13 crore were spent on managing the website of the Corporation.
