Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party has been accused of using the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) to convert its illegal Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes into legal currency. The allegation has been made by Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyaya, who has also written a letter in this regard to Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung. The matter came to light after DTC deposited Rs 3 crore revenue. Most of it was in old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. It is believed that this is how AAP is converting its money that was collected through donations, Hindi daily Jansatta reported.

In his letter, Upadhyay asked as to how DTC can submit revenue in old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes when the fares in public buses range from Rs 5 to Rs 25 and the bus conductors never have enough cash for the change. People travelling in DTC buses generally belong to lower middle classes and pay their fare in change, the letter said.

It has been found that the most part of the revenue submitted by DTC is in banned currency notes. This raises suspicion of wrongdoing and the money may be connected with the donations collected by ruling party (AAP), the letter said.

The BJP leader asked the LG to tell the DTC management to come clean on the issue of old notes so that the image of a public institution doesn’t get maligned.

AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has been running a campaign against demonetisation announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8. While the decision was considered revolutionary move against corruption and black money, Kejriwal claims it is the biggest scam in the history of India.

    Oh it hurts. All along A K believed in leveling allegations without evidence. And his standard reply was that because he says so. After 3 ministers and 15 MLAs under investigation he does not have any legs to stand on. We need to investigate.

            Ha ha ha. The goons are worried about 3cr collected from poor people, and not 1.5 lakh Cr.that banks losing due to PM's love for capitalists'bad loans! Forgiving thousands of Crs. to Maliyaa & others. Converting their own 1000's of cr. before announcement! They think all janta is a fool. Moreover once you know DTC will take 500 most commuters would will prefer using 500s 1000s. Even drivers & conductors could convert. For 30000 buses it is just meagre amount not >1000 per bus! Shame on Satish Upadhyay. He himself must have converted 100sof Crs. of his own black money by Modi's preinfo.

                    Poor journalism. What saddens me is how ordinary Indians are made to feel like criminals. Standing in queue. Made to apply ink. There will definitely a reaction. Time will tell.

                        What stupidity! People known to DTC staff and other transport department staff all over the country are getting notes exchanged with then instead of standing in long back and ATM queues.Was there any rule against this? There should have been, but since there was no such rule, anybody who could use this loop used it. Will be true for all departments where old notes were allowed.Will spread lies and will be published.

                              All the Loans u s are talking about was given in Congress period not by BJP govt or by Mr.Modiji. They gave this large amounts by getting huge commissions. Without proper doents and appropriate collateral.

                                Arwind Kejriwal used Anna Hazare's image to come to power and did nothing for Delhi People for the past two years other than blaming the Great Leader.Mr.Modiji achieved great feets in Gujarat and did his work as CM for many years.

                                  Never expected AK to protest in support of corruption. Really expected him to support demonetisation. He is equally corrupt as other politicians.

                                    It is not surprising if he is doing so. He is like any other politician in this country, a corrupt and lier, it's in their blood and they are a disguise to this Country. God has given so much riches to this Country but at the same time given this politicians as a curse to balance it out, who will never let this country prosper and fleece the people to fill their coffers. We have to live with it.

                                        Kejriwal is as big a fraud as Modi who won election on issue of black money,etc.CM Delhi,Kejriwal won on anti corruption issue.But turned out to be pro corruption.Time and again open corruption in Shahjahanabad,CGHS,Dwarka,New Delhi involving cores of rupees has been brought to his notice.He forwards it to his Dy who in turn forwards to RCS.The matter ends here.This is new definition of anti corruption. Hypocrisy is at its height.

                                          "Khule do" is what DTC conductors always say. Do you expect them to give change for 500 or 1000 rupees when a penger asks for a 5 or 30 rupees ticket. From where they will give change. There is some thing really fishy in all this.

                                            Implementation requires application of mind, team work and total commitment. BJP and old political parties are not used to this given their background. They must have learnt from AAP's implementation of odd even exercise in Delhi.This is time these satish upadhyas and their likes to stop their old dirty tricks and get down to work. You guys will soon fade away.
