‘Note scam by Kejriwal government is first post demonetisation scam’
New Delhi, Dec 1 (IANS) Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party using the Delhi Transport Corporation to exchange Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes is the first established post demonetisation scam, BJP Delhi unit President Manoj Tiwari said on Thursday.
The allegation came after the DTC deposited Rs 3 crore revenue, most of it in demonetised notes.
“It is beyond comprehension that how so many high denomination notes can surface at the DTC which sells tickets of Rs 5 and 10,” Tiwari said here.
Tiwari said that his party had raised this issue with the Lt. Governor of Delhi on November 21 and later wrote to the Anti Corruption Branch (ACB).
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said that the Delhi government had itself handed over the case to the ACB, which falls under the BJP-led central government.
“We also want to remind the newly appointed Delhi BJP President that his party’s leader and the country’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi is being accused of taking bribe of Rs 65 crore 10 lakh from Sahara and Birla,” AAP spokesperson Dilip Pandey said.
