[New Delhi]P Chidambaram Diverts Onus From Smt Sonia Gandhi To Ajay Maken:DDCA Episode. Jaitely Has Charged Sonia For Hatching Conspiracy To Fix Him.
Giving Clean Chit To Own Party’s President, Ex FM Says That It Is Unfair to Drag Sonia Gandhi in DDCA mess:
Former FM Chidambaram today said it was “unfair” to drag Congress president Sonia Gandhi in an alleged attempt to fix Finance Minister Arun Jaitley during the UPA regime and accused the Modi government of acting with “ulterior motives” in the National Herald case.
He said the probe by Serious Frauds Investigation Office (SFIO) into the DDCA affairs was referred by the then Sports Minister Ajay Maken on some complaints he had received.
“I was told by Mr Ajay Maken that when Maken was the Sports Minister, complaints were received and those complaints were referred to the SFIO.
“I have not read the SFIO report. Therefore I cannot comment. Seems a bit unfair to drag the name of Mrs Gandhi. Mr Maken is in the best place to explain who referred the matter to SFIO,” he said.
Chidambaram was commenting on an interview given by Jaitley to a newspaper in which he had alleged that a BJP MP had met Sonia Gandhi during the UPA tenure “and they said they will fix Jaitley.”Though Jaitley did not name the MP, the newspaper suggested it was Kirti Azad, who has been running a campaign against alleged corruption in the Delhi cricket body DDCA.
[New Delhi]Congress Turns Corruption Ball Against “AAP”And Demands Probe Against CM Kejriwal,
Congress today demanded probe into allegations of corruption against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his ministers with regard to purchase of various items and other issues.
Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken met Anti Corruption Branch (ACB) chief M K Meena at his office and filed a complaint demanding registration of an FIR against Kejriwal and his ministers on allegations of “corruption and impropriety” in purchase of sugar+onion + water, as well as in distribution of party tickets for Delhi elections,
Congress leader Pramod Kumar said.”The DPCC delegation Led By Maken also requested Meena to file an FIR against Kejriwal and his former and present ministers for their alleged roles in corruption,”
Maken said “two of the AAP government ministers were involved” and removed on corruption charges.
“The role of Kejriwal and others should also be probed as Kejriwal had handpicked the ministers on his own, despite opposition from his party members and he cannot absolve himself of these charges,” Maken said.
[New Delhi]Congress,Postmortem Delhi’s Fake Budget by Fake Degree Government.
Ajay Maken Said that Delhi AAP Govt ,through this budget ,is creating ground for confrontation with Centre
Congress today slammed the “fake” budget tabled by “inexperienced” AAP government saying their promises of setting up new schools and hospitals will require land which will again put the state government in direct confrontation with the Centre.
Maken said This is a fake budget by fake degree Government. In its budget, the Government has shown 32 per cent rise in tax revenue, which was only 2 per cent last year.
It has shown 75 per cent rise in non-tax revenue, which was in negative last fiscal. So, the proposed tax and VAT collection and rise in non tax revenue is not going to realise and hence, this is a fake budget,” Maken told reporters.
He claimed that prices of food and other items are set to shoot up in Delhi as goods and food items coming from outside will be taxed even as there is ban on farming along banks of Yamuna River.
Price of each item will go up and the Arvind Kejriwal Government only is responsible for this
Maken further questioned the “inexperienced” AAP Government saying how it will arrange for space for constructing depots for 10,000 additional buses as promised, increasing as many new beds in hospitals and setting up new schools.
“These facilities can come up only when Centre makes available space for it. So, all these things are not going to happen and these people are going to fight with Centre saying they wanted to work, but Centre did not allow us,
The former Union Minister added that the Government has made a “very little” budgetary provision for skill development to compliment job generation.
Speaking to media persons here, Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken also claimed that by making promises like providing additional buses, beds and schools – which will require land to be fulfilled – the AAP Government has prepared itself for another battle with Centre.
He said Land in Delhi falls under jurisdiction of Central Government and hence, if AAP fails to keep the promises, it can get away by blaming Centre,
