AAP sticks to guns, Upadhyay shoots off legal notice

As Kejriwal was not available, his colleagues Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh and Ashutosh fired a fresh salvo against Upadhyay.  AAP leaders demanded Upadhyay  stick to his promise of resignation on being exposed and prepare for a life of asceticism. On its part, the BJP leader filed a complaint against AAP with the Election Commission and also sent him a legal notice. Speaking at a programme of a news channel, Kejriwal too ‘showed’ the evidences and said that Upadhyay was threatening with defamation notice to save his skin.

“NCNL Infomedia Private Limited’s memorandum of association clearly shows that Upadhyay brothers- Satish and Umesh; were equal owners and first directors at the time of incorporation of the company. Upadhyay had mentioned that he’s a shareholder and it is no crime to be one but this company had installed electricity meters in Delhi. Delhi suffered from fast running electricity meters,” said Manish Sisodia. He further added that issue of fast running meters and inflated bills had its roots and indicated a clear nexus between BJP leaders and BSES.

AAP’s Ashutosh described Upadhyay’s  claim that he had resigned from all private companies after 2012 after becoming a local councilor as a blatant lie. “Records from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs show he’s still a Director in 2 companies,” he added. AAP leaders further alleged that in another suspicious transaction conducted, another of his companies, New Delhi Communication Network Limited, sold 2000 shares of face value at Rs. 10 each at a premium of Rs. 990 to Towerbase
Services Pvt Ltd.

This company allegedly secured Rs. 20 lakh at this valuation in 2009. “Can Satish Upadhyay explain this transaction? Surprisingly, in his election affidavit filed henceforth, he has declared his ownership of 117700 shares at Rs. 10 each,”alleged Ashutosh.

Meanwhile, Satish Upadhyay along with his senior party leaders met chief election commissioner and submitted a complaint demanding action against Kejriwal and his party. Besides, Upadhyay Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel, South Delhi MP Ramesh Bidhuri, former Delhi BJP president Vijender Gupta were also present in the delegation. Later, Upadhyay also served a legal notice to Kejriwal asking him to prove the charges within 24 hours or else defamation case would be filed against him. “If he has no proof, he must extend unconditional apology to me and the people of Delhi,’ said Upadhyay.
