New Delhi, Sep 2: Anna Hazare aide, Arvind Kejriwal, who has been asked to pay the due amount of more than Rs 9 lakhs by the Income Tax Department, hit back at the Government by defending himself. Kejriwal said, "I have fulfilled bond condition of 3 yrs. Govt is trying to defame me."

And added, "IT Dept hasn't contacted me for 4 yrs. IT dept is under the pressure from political bosses." According to The Times of India report, the I-T department still considers Kejriwal as a government servant and have not accepted his resignation from Indian Revenue Service in Feb 2006 on claims that he violated bond conditions.

Kejriwal was accused by the I-T department of not returning back to government service after he was sanctioned study leave demanding that he return his two year's salary of Rs 3.50 lakh with an interest of Rs 4.16 lakh. Kejriwal also took a computer loan for Rs 50,000 which accumulated to Rs 1 lakh.
