Officials of the Lt Governor’s Secretariat said that the CBI is probing the matter and the agency has already filed charge sheets against two accused employees of KVIC. He said that the matter is pending in Rouse Avenue Court, New Delhi.
“It is reiterated that the case is of only Rs 17.07 lakh, while AAP is spreading false propaganda by saying it is worth Rs 1,400 crore,” the officials said. This is just a figment of the accusers and they will have to face the consequences. “The Lieutenant Governor has decided to take legal action against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Saurabh Bhardwaj, Atishi, Durgesh Pathak and Jasmine Shah and others for making highly defamatory and false allegations of corruption,” the Lieutenant Governor’s office said in a note. .’
The AAP MLAs had created a ruckus in the Assembly on Monday demanding the resignation of the Lieutenant Governor, for which the proceedings had to be adjourned. Later, several AAP leaders, including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, repeated the allegation both inside and outside the Assembly.
