Kejriwal attacks Congress for not raising issue of PM’s ‘corruption’ in past

New Delhi, December 22
A day after Congress Vice-president Rahul Gandhi alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had received payments from the corporate houses, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today attacked the Congress party for not raising the issue earlier when the party was in power at the Centre. Kejriwal wondered whether Congress and BJP had some clandestine understanding at that time.
Attacking the Congress party over the issue, the Aam Aadmi Party convener posted a video message in Twitter saying, “Rahul Gandhi has raised the issue of Prime Minister’s involvement in ‘corruption’ yesterday but Aam Aadmi Party has been raking the matter since last one month. On 15th of October, 2013, raid took place on Birla and during that period the Congress party ruled at the Centre. The officials recovered papers which showed name of the then Chief Minister of Gujarat receiving the payments. Why Congress party did not raise the matter and inform the people of the country during that time? The most important question is that whether Congress and BJP have reached a deal at that period.”
Yesterday, the Delhi Chief Minister had demanded a Supreme Court monitored probe to look into the matter and asked the Prime Minister to step down from the post unless he was cleared of all the charges, like his party (BJP) veteran LK Advani had done in 1990s.
