Prove charges against Sonia, Rahul, Cong tells APP

Prove charges against Sonia, Rahul, Cong tells APP

All India Congress Committee General Secretary Digvijay Singh has demanded Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to substantiate his corruption charges against AICC president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi.

Addressing mediapersons here on Sunday, Singh said Kejriwal should come
out with evidence to establish his corruption charges against the two top leaders of the Congress or tender public apology, failing which the party will initiate legal action against him.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of Kejriwal has named Sonia and Rahul in its recently released list of “corrupt” leaders.

Singh alleged that Kejriwal had not accounted for the funds collected for the anti-corruption movement of Anna Hazare and hence has no moral right to speak against corruption. He accused Kejriwal of conducting himself as a judge and a Lokpal.

“ The Congress extended support to AAP in order to prevent a fresh election. Kejriwal should utilise the opportunity and deliver on his promises instead of levelling baseless allegations,” Singh said.

The BJP created a ruckus over categorising people earning less than Rs 32 a day as below poverty line (BPL).

But, the party government in Gujarat has issued a circular classifying people earning less than Rs 11 and Rs 15 a day in rural and urban areas respectively as below poverty line, Singh said, urging BJP leader Sushma Swaraj to make her party’s stand clear on the issue. He claimed that Gujarat was a developed state even before Modi took over as chief minister.

“The State progressed because of entrepreneurial skills of its people and not on account of Modi,” he said.

LS candidates’ selection

Singh said the Congress screening committee will hold a meeting at New Delhi on February 6 for selecting its nominees to Lok Sabha polls from Karnataka.
The list will be later submitted to the high command for approval.
