Sex for vote: Devinder Sehrawat says AAP trying to shoot the messenger, instead of taking action

AAP MLA Devinder Sehrawat says no action was taken by the party when he had informed it about discrepancies in high-security number plate scheme, a tehsildar asking for bribes, an incompetent SDM posted in my constituency and a Rs 100-crore land scam in Samalkha.

Instead of probing his allegations against party leaders seeking sex in return for tickets ahead of Punjab polls, AAP is trying to “shoot the messenger”, Devinder Sehrawat, party’ MLA from Bijawasan, Delhi claims. In a letter to Delhi CM and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal, Sehrawat had accused AAP Punjab unit in-charge Sanjay Singh and other party leaders of seeking sex from woman candidates in return for poll tickets.

“Instead of taking action against the people who are doing something wrong, they are trying to shoot the messenger. My letter was not timed according to any political schedule. Whether the party takes action or not, it was important for me to draw everyone’s attention to what is going wrong within AAP,” Sehrawat told The Indian Express in an interview.

Singh has decided to file a defamation suit against Sehrawat. However, Sehrawat said it was “outrageous”, considering his contribution to the party. When asked why didn’t he meet and inform Kejriwal directly instead of writing a letter and making it public, he told IE: “Over the past eight months, I have repeatedly raised several issues within the party about the functioning of the government. I have written several letters… but all of it fell on deaf ears.”

In past, Sehrawat further said, he had informed the party about discrepancies in high-security number plate scheme, a tehsildar asking for bribes, an incompetent SDM posted in my constituency and a Rs 100-crore land scam in Samalkha. “None of these was taken seriously, except my concerns about the high-security number plate scheme,” he said.

Sehrawat also denied that he was being propped up by the Opposition parties and said he would not quit as his loyalty is to his people, not for those from Ghaziabad, where Kejriwal lived earlier.
