A documentary from national award winner filmmaker Anand Gandhi on the journey of current Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was cleared by the Censor Board with 7 cuts on Thursday, as reported by Dainik Bhaskar. However, the report added that the film will still need a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit. The film titled, ‘An Insignificant Man’ is based on the formation of the Aam Aadmi Party and its fight against corruption.
The release of this film comes at a very interesting time as the fight within Aam Aadmi Party is getting serious with each passing day. Earlier in the day, former Delhi water minister Kapil Mishra once again attacked Arvind Kejriwal by claiming that the Delhi CM had opposed demonetisation move as it threatened to “derail” his “money laundering” attempts. While addressing a press conference Mishra was quoted saying by news agency PTI, “Why did he (Kejriwal) fiercely oppose demonetisation? Why did he travel across the country against the move? Because his men, who hoard black money, were being raided by enforcement agencies.”
Kapil, who has been suspended from the AAP, also alleged that Delhi-based businessman Mukesh Kumar, who claimed to have donated Rs 2 crore to AAP in 2014, was merely a mask for “proclaimed black money offenders”. “Ten days before AAP took office in 2013, Mukesh Kumar’s company was slapped a notice by the Delhi government for not paying VAT. And then this person goes on to donate Rs 2 crore to AAP, ” he said.
After Mishra’s continuous attacks, another Delhi minister Satyendar Jain today filed a criminal defamation case against the sacked former Delhi Cabinet minister on Friday morning, reported ANI. Jain has also filed a suit against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) MLA Manjinder S. Sirsa in the Tis Hazari Court. A couple of weeks ago, Mishra had alleged that he had seen Kejriwal taking Rs 2 cr from Satyendar Jain at Delhi CM’s residence.
