Kirti to move court aginst govt, Jaitley, CBI

Published On : 28 Jan 2016

New Delhi, Jan 28 (PTI) Suspended BJP MP Kirti Azad on Thursday dragged the Modi government into his campaign against alleged corruption in DDCA and said he will move court against it besides Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, claiming that the CBI remains a "caged parrot"

At a press conference here, he also released a letter written by him to Jaitley in September last in which he alleged that the senior BJP leader played a "nefarious role" in messing up the DDCA and Hockey India

"The day is not far when you will have to be answerable for all the loot that took place right under your charge..

While cricket went to the dogs in your regime, only your trusted friends prospered," he wrote on September 13

Jaitley has denied all the charges and filed a civil and criminal defamation case against Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and other AAP leaders for their similar accusations against him

Keeping up his attack on Jaitley, Azad suggested his role in a "mysterious" mail sent to the Delhi and District Cricket Association(DDCA) office-bearers about re-appointing a "favourite" auditor and filing of a defamation case against him and Kejriwal

"Like always there are outsiders in 'non-executive roles' without any accountability who keep advising DDCA office- bearers how to run it," he told the media taking a swipe at Jaitley, who has insisted that he tenure as the DDCA president was non-executive

BJP has suspended Azad for his relentless attack on Jaitley, who the party has insisted is a man of highest probity, and served him a show cause notice, asking why he should not be expelled

Even as he targeted him, Azad claimed that BJP will revoke his suspension as he had not targeted the party or the government

The report of Justice Mukul Mudgal, who was appointed observer by the Delhi High Court for the India-South Africa cricket test in New Delhi, corroborates most of the charges made by him, Azad said, adding that he would move a writ petition after Mudgal files his second report.
