It seems that many people including politicians such as Congress senior leader Digvijay Singh have started a joint venture to corner the social activist-turned-politician who hogged limelight with his fight against "corrupt" leaders and influential people.
The former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister has sent a list of questions to Kejriwal. Some of the questions are as follows:
- In 20 years of service, you have never been posted out of Delhi?
- Your wife, also an IRS officer, has never served outside Delhi?
- Did you take government permission to form your NGO?
- Explain if foreign funds used for NGO
- Is it true that the NGO Kabir, with whom you're associated, received money from the Ford Foundation?
- What is your relationship with US-based NGO Avaaz which has been funding Civil Disobedience movements in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt and Syria?
Digvijay's counter-attack on Kejriwal might be Congress's tactics to corner him as he slapped several corruption charges on Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid and Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra.
Digvijay earlier had claimed that Kejriwal along with Swami Agnivesh had approached him seeking recommendation to join Sonia Gandhi-led National Advisory Council (NAC). However, Kejriwal on Saturday, Oct 20 rubbished such statements saying, "I have never approached anyone for NAC. I never had any desire for being a member of NAC."
The activist also undermined a letter sent by Digvijay saying, "Digvijay's letter to me does not merit a response. Congress seems to be completely rattled and baffled. That is apparent from Digvijay's letter."
However, Digvijay Singh was not alone in questioning Kejriwal. Recently, a former IPS officer YP Singh accused India Against Corruption (IAC) and Kejriwal of concealing facts about Union Agriculture Minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar.
The former IPS officer claimed that Kejriwal chose not to expose Pawar despite having all required evidence. Taking a dig at the IAC leader, the former IPS officer said the latter did not reveal all information related to the irrigation scam in Maharashtra. Singh said Sharad Pawar was at the centre of the actual scam.
