ACB issues notice to Dikshit in tanker scam
The Anti-Corruption Branch issued notice to former chief minister Sheila Dikshit to join the probe in Rs 400 crore water tanker scam. ACB head M K Meena said that notices were issued to Dikshit and Delhi Jal Board officials and they will be questioned on August 26.

Dikshkt said that the allegations were “politically motivated”. Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra had launched a campaign “no jail no mooch (moustache)” against the Leader of the Opposition Vijender Gupta for not being able to convince Anti-Corruption Branch to arrest former chief minister Sheila Dikshit in water tanker scam. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had made this announcement in the last Delhi session that Gupta should either get Dikshit arrested in next two months or shave off his moustache.

The city government had launched a portal ‘no jail no’ where people can post their comments on the issue. The web portal also has a video of the CM making the announcement in the Delhi Assembly.

The Leader of the Opposition said that the AAP government has been politicising the issue of corruption. “Kejriwal government is a party to the water tanker scam. So it diverting attention by indulging into such gimmicks,” Gupta had said.

Mishra has been alleging that Anti Corruption Branch head M K Meena and the BJP have been protecting Dikshit because she “knows too much about the malpractices that BJP leaders are indulging into”.

“In the next three four days I will tell the people why ACB head Meena and BJP are protecting Dikshit in water tanker scam,” Mishra had added.

The water minister said that he would produce proof of the connivance of Dikshit and BJP in water tanker scam.

But the BJP has been alleging that Mishra pointed out bungling in the functioning of Delhi Jal Board to Arvind Kejriwal some months ago but the CM did not act on it.
