New Delhi, Jan 14: Hours after the Aam Admi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal levelled allegations on the Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay, he was given a 24-hour deadline to prove his claims, on Wednesday, Jan 14.
During a press conference in the national capital, Upadhyay made point-by-point rebuttal to Kejriwal's allegations.
While saying that there is no records of the firms mentioned by AAP, Upadhyaya said, "Kejriwal ji has put personal allegations on me and Ashish Sood ji which should be clarified." [Arvind Kejriwal targets Delhi BJP chief]
"There is no company that exists by the name of company Arvind Kejriwal is alleging, we will file charges for defamation", he said.
"Kejriwal should either give proof of companies that hes alleging me to be part of or he should quit politics", he added.
"We will definitely file criminal defamation against him. Kejriwal should answer to people of Delhi for lying to people over and over again", he further said.
Delhi BJP General secretary Ashish Sood said, "Why are records untraceable today? Isn't he known to expose imp information through RTIs?"
Meanwhile AAP leader Ashutosh said, "We have shown the papers we have, why was the price of electricity not reduced in Delhi?
"We stand by what we said, why was the process of auditing not expedited? Is it because they are working with the power companies?", he wondred.
AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal reacted over Upadhyay's statement and said, "He is actually agreeing to everything, that the meters Delhi people are complaining about have been put by his company."
"What defamation? He is agreeing to everything. Evidence is on our website", he further asserted.
