AAP rejects SG's remark on gas price

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday alleged that the central government has been making “desperate attempts to influence the ongoing investigation into the multi-crore natural price hike scam by Delhi government’s Anti-Corruption Branch.”

The allegation came in the wake of the Solicitor General’s opinion that the FIR lodged by the Delhi government goes against federalism.

“The opinion by a central government’s law officer (Solicitor General) reported in the media is shocking and clearly establishes collusion between the Petroleum Ministry and the Reliance Industries Limited, which is aimed at providing this company an unjustified gain of Rs 54,500 crore every year,” said an AAP release.

“The Solicitor General (SG) appears to be trying to create an erroneous impression that even if any central minister allegedly commits a crime in Delhi, then no action can be taken against such a minister,” the party said.
