Ajay Maken, President of the Delhi Congress on Tuesday, said that he had lost the count of the number of AAP ministers getting involved in legal controversies. Talking about AAP’s controversial cabinet, he cited the example of the Law Minister and Sandip Kumar’s CD scandal and said that since Chief Minister had handpicked these men, he should be answerable to the people of Delhi. He said that the ruling Aam Aadmi Party has been evading questions about these controversies. He accused them of trying to get away from these questions by asking more questions.

Speaking to Times Now, he requested Arvind Kejriwal and Satyendra Jain to come forward and explain themselves to the paper. He stressed that if Kejriwal had already seen the papers and found nothing wrong with it, then he must disclose them to the public and let them decide. He was of the opinion that these ministers, including Jain, might be innocent, if they were, they must come out to the public with whatever proof they are holding on to.He accused the AAP of  playing the victim card. He requested the AAP to stop playing a “bichara” in front of the people and if they are innocent, prove it to the people of India. he said that if the AAP ministers can prove their innocence then no one will believe them to be the culprits.

Meanwhile, Siddharth Nath Singh of the Bhartiya Janata Party has demanded the resignation of Satyendra Jain from his post of Delhi’s Health Minister. He said that Jain had been summoned by the IT department regarding the evasion of taxes but Kejriwal gave him a clean cheat within a period of 30 minutes. He firmly stated that this attitude of Kejriwal has been going on a for a while. He said that Kejriwal must remove Jain from his post as the Delhi CM keeps saying that it is how his party works. Earlier, Delhi Health minister Satyendra Jain had come under the Income Tax scanner for allegedly indulging in an “illegal” transfer of nearly Rs 17 crore.
