Ke­jri­wal in Dubai to con­vert black money into white, claims BJP

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

NEW DELHI: The BJP on Satur­day at­tacked Delhi Chief Min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal over his "se­cret trip" to Dubai and al­leged that he has gone there to con­vert the black money into white.

The BJP also ac­cused Ke­jri­wal of ne­glect­ing the peo­ple of the city at a time when the air qual­ity is un­der 'se­vere' cat­e­gory.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) re­futed the BJP charge and said the Chief Min­is­ter has gone to at­tend a fam­ily func­tion of his batch mate.

"The peo­ple of Delhi are cry­ing due to pol­lu­tion – it has be­come dif­fi­cult to breathe. But you are on tour of Dubai with fam­ily mem­bers. Is it right Chief Min­is­ter Ke­jri­wal?" asked Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party chief Manoj Ti­wari in a Hindi tweet.

"A sig­na­ture deal is go­ing on to con­vert the black money into white in the name of party do­na­tions. The peo­ple of Delhi will not for­give you," Ti­wari al­leged.

The BJP MP from North-East Delhi said Ke­jri­wal spends the money of Delhi on po­lit­i­cal ex­pan­sion in other states and vis­its for­eign coun­tries to con­vert "black money into white".

"Re­cently Delhi's Health Min­is­ter Satyen­dar Jain had also gone to Dubai for a week but no­body was in­formed about his tour. It shows some con­spir­acy is be­ing hatched," Ti­wari al­leged.

"Ke­jri­wal is busy in ex­chang­ing the hawala money which was col­lected in the name of party funds," he al­leged.

Echo­ing Ti­wari's claims, BJP MLA and leader of Op­po­si­tion in the Assem­bly Vi­jen­der Gupta said, "Ke­jri­wal left for Dubai on Novem­ber 8 by an Air In­dia flight. AAP is try­ing to hide his trip."

AAP leader raghav Chadha at a press con­fer­ence said, "All such charges against Ke­jri­wal are wrong. He has gone to Dubai to at­tend a fam­ily func­tion of his IIT batch mate," he said.
