Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, Oct 19: Social activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal reacted strongly against the charges levelled against him and India Against Corruption (IAC) by former IPS officer YP Singh, saying the allegations were not "true".

Hours after former IPS officer's allegations, Kejriwal on Friday, Oct 19 asserted that they did not hide any evidence which may prove that Union Agriculture Minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar is "corrupt".

"We are taking the issues where we have proof, it is wrong to say that we hid evidence. We are very selective because we are very responsible," said the former Team Anna member while rubbishing charges against them.

The former IPS officer claimed that Kejriwal chose not to expose Pawar despite having all required evidence. Taking a dig at the IAC leader, YP Singh said the latter did not reveal all information related to the irrigation scam in Maharashtra. YP Singh said Sharad Pawar was at the centre of the actual scam.

The former officer's allegations against Kejriwal and Co surfaced just a day after the IAC accused Gadkari of illegally gobbling up farmers' land for his own industries and commercial interests.
