Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal
BJP leader O P Sharma told reporters that Kejriwal is habitual of making ludicrous charges, but managed to turn a blind eye to the misdeeds by the members of the Aam Aadmi Party.
“Kejriwal is targeting so many others but he is not looking at his own people who are busy raping women, making fake degrees, going to prison and abusing women. He is probably the first man in the world whose tongue’s length has increased by saying lies and had to surgically cut it!,” he said.
Asserting that the actions of DCW Chief Swati Maliwal, who is facing charges of irregularities in the appointments in the panel, were unconstitutional, Sharma added that Kejriwal should not get so flustered and instead cooperate with the investigation if he thinks he and Maliwal are innocent.
Kejriwal’s fresh attack on the Prime Minister came after the anti-corruption branch (ACB) slapped a police case against Swati Maliwal over complaints of alleged irregular recruitment.
“Don’t know why my name is in the FIR. Without the Prime Minister’s approval, a chief minister’s name doesn’t come in an FIR. What is my role in this? My role has not been mentioned even once in the FIR,” Kejriwal said.
The ACB on Tuesday filed an FIR against Maliwal over alleged irregularities in appointment of staff in the women’s panel.
The FIR has been filed under Prevention of Corruption Act and comes after she was grilled by the ACB over the matter.
The DCW is under the ACB scanner for arbitrarily appointing 85 people in the past year. Around 90 per cent of contractual staff of the Delhi Commission for Women, led by Maliwal, are members of her party.
Last month, Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal had warned that Maliwal will be arrested soon as there are numerous decisions of the AAP-led Delhi government which Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants reversed through the Lieutenant Governor, Najeeb Jung.
Quoting sources, Kejriwal added that Jung is ‘hell bent’ on removing the team which made clinics and saved money on flyovers, adding that Maliwal was in danger too.

Earlier the ACB had raided Maliwal’s office following a complaint lodged by her DCW predecessor Barkha Shukla Singh, alleging that it was indulging in illegal practices of appointing party associates to plum posts.
