Kejriwal power hungry liar: Suspended party legislator

Suspended AAP MLA from Bijwasan, Devinder Sehrawat, on Tuesday called Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal a liar and blamed his government of ignoring court directions to save commuters from overcharging by app-based cabs.

Kejriwal is an ambitious and power-hungry leader who misled many who trusted him, he said.

“Kejriwal was has let down founding members of the AAP like me and lakhs of other supporters,” he said, at a press conference here against the AAP government’s alleged collusion with app-based cab operators who overcharge commuters through surge pricing.

"The Delhi government is not implementing the high court order to benefit the radio cab companies," Sehrawat alleged. Sehrawat claimed that radio cab operators earned over Rs 9,239 crore due to surge pricing and it should be refunded to the consumers.

He said he had given a complaint to the National Consumer Commission over the alleged fleecing of commuters. Sehrawat has joined hands with NGO Nyaybhoomi to raise the issue of commuters’ fleecing.

Sehrawat was suspended from AAP on September 12 after he accused party men in Punjab of "exploiting women" in return for tickets. Sehrawat said his attempts to apprise Kejriwal about alleged wrongdoings of other party leaders resulted in his victimisation and suspension from the party.

On September 4, Sherawat wrote a letter to Kejriwal on the issue. "I saw disturbing reports about women being exploited in Punjab in return for, or on promise of, a ticket. Am meeting people in Chandigarh... Delhi MLAs are unaware about what is being done by (senior party members) in Punjab," Sehrawat's letter said.

The MLA’s letter came close to arrest of sacked women and child development minister Sandeep Kumar over a sex CD scandal allegedly involving him. Kumar is in judicial custody.
