Captain Amarinder Singh alleged that Arvind Kejriwal’s NGO was funded by the Ford Foundation, which is supported by the CIA. He said that the way Kejriwal functioned while he was the Chief Minister shows that he had taken money from CIA.
KEJRIWAL CHEATED THE IT DEPARTMENT?
The PCC president reminded Kejriwal that quite contrary to the high moral ground he was taking today, he was forced to repay Rs 9.2 lakhs by income tax department, which he had cheated off.
“Didn’t you repay this money under pressure after eight years, during the peak of the Anna movement just to show yourself to be clean as you claimed to be leading an anti-corruption movement while you had cheated your department of Rs 9.2 lakhs?” he asked Kejriwal.
He questioned Kejriwal’s double standards by saying that while he did not even react to the revelations made by the AAP National Council member Pavitar Singh that Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak demanded Rs 50 lakhs from him to allot Phillaur assembly ticket to his wife, he took no time to malign Chhotepur just because he had accepted donation from a party volunteer.
“Why not apply same yardstick on Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak who have been accused on record by one of your own founding members of seeking bribe?” he asked Kejriwal, while adding, “or is it simply because you apply one set of rules on the Punjabi leaders and another on non-Punjabis like Singh and Pathak as they are earning money for you”.
‘AAP MEMBERS INSULT SIKH LEADERS, MAKE FUN OF RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS’
The former Chief Minister said, he had conclusive evidence that the non-Punjabi leaders like Singh and Pathak were using scornful and derogatory language against the Sikh leaders and even making fun of their religious symbols, like saying that the Sikhs have their brains in their beards.
Besides, he added, Kejriwal has also been heard poking fun at the Punjabi and Sikh leaders and there was grave resentment among the local cadres.
He said, he will release the evidence in due course of time.
KEJRIWAL’S NGO FUNDED BY CIA?
Captain Amarinder alleged that Parivartan, the NGO Kejriwal ran while being a member of the Indian Revenue Services, along with Sisodia, was funded by the Ford Foundation, which in turn was supported by the CIA.
He said a probe must establish as how he could run an NGO while in government service and that too, whose funding was very suspicious as CIA is not known to do any charity.
“Besides, the way you tried to destablise the governments by resorting to unwarranted protests and dharnas, even while being the Chief Minister yourself, only vindicate and validate the widespread perception and the purpose for which you took money from the Ford Foundation”, he told the AAP convener.
He asked Kejriwal to explain how he managed to serve and spend his entire career of over two decades in Income Tax department in Delhi only as normally income tax officials are transferred all across the country.
