Targetted for being Dalit, tweets sacked Delhi minister
"I am a Dalit and I am paying for it. There is some conspiracy against me," Sandeep Kumar tweeted.
"Charging and proving anything on people like me with the money power is not a big deal," he said.
"I have got a statue of Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar at my house and I talk about Dalits and thats why I am being targetted," Kumar added.
Kumar was sacked from his post on Wednesday by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saying he had received an "objectionable" CD on him and there cannot be any compromise with propriety in public life.
Kumar is the third minister who has been removed or forced out of the cabinet by Kejriwal since the formation of the government in February 2015.
