Sena slams Kejriwal over his allegations against Jaitley


Mumbai, Dec 23: Shiv Sena on Wednesday, Dec 23 mounted a scathing attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over his allegations against Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley of financial irregularities in Delhi cricket body when he headed it.

"Now, Kejriwal has levelled allegations against Jaitley, who has termed them baseless and has filed a defamation suit against him, while Kejriwal says that attempts are being made to scare his party in which Jaitley will not succeed," an editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' said.


"Filing a defamation suit is Jaitley's right. Kejriwal can say what he wants to, sling mud on people, but the person who is being defamed by all this cannot even answer back. What kind of goondaism is this," the ruling alliance partner said. Further hitting out at AAP leader, it said "Arvind Kejriwal first levelled allegations against Nitin Gadkari while he was the BJP's national president.

All the allegations were proved to be incorrect when Gadkari filed a defamation suit against Kejriwal. At that time, there was a possibility of Gadkari getting another term as party president."

"Due to the Income Tax raids against Gadkari then, he was defamed and he lost the chance to get a second term. Had he got a second term as the BJP president, he would have been a strong contender for the Prime Minister's post," the ruling alliance partner said. "At that time, the instigators of the episode were from the party itself," it alleged.

The Sena also said that the previous Parliament session was rocked by allegations against External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and alleged that people who were trying to defame her were from her party as well.
