UP govt let Amar Singh go scot-free: Kejriwal

It is shameful of Akhilesh regime to withdraw cases

Anti-graft activist Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday slammed the Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh for withdrawing money laundering cases against Amar Singh.

Kejriwal termed the decision of the Uttar Pradesh government as “shameful”. The activist expressed apprehensions that the UP government would also withdraw the case against External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid.

“Money laundering cases withdrawn against Amar Singh?  Shameful. Is this criminal justice system? We have to completely overthrow this system,” Kejriwal posted on Twitter.

“Next Mulayam Singh will withdraw cases against Salman Khurshid. Wait n (and) watch. And in return, Congress wud (would) withdraw cases against Mulayam,” he said. 

“Absolutely no hope for India from present politicians. These leaders and the system ought to be overthrown. New young leaders should  take over India,” he appealed.

“Since we started exposing politicians, people have started sending us huge amount of information,” Kejriwal claimed in his one of the tweets.

The Uttar Pradesh government on Friday decided to withdraw cases of money laundering against Singh, former Samajwadi Party general secretary.

The decision indicates a softening stand of Mulayam towards friend-turned-enemy  Singh, and an attempt to exonerate Amitabh Bachchan on the other. Along with Singh and his wife, Bachchan was also charged in the case. The case was filed during Mayawati’s rule.
