BJP throws muck at AAP over Ke­jri­wal’s Dubai trip

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: Though AAP on Satur­day clar­i­fied that chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal is on a pri­vate visit to Dubai to at­tend a fam­ily func­tion of an IIT batch­mate, the op­po­si­tion BJP has sus­pected a “hid­den agenda” be­hind it.

Ques­tion­ing the se­crecy as­so­ci­ated with the trip, leader of op­po­si­tion Vi­jen­der Gupta said the visit had come over a week af­ter health min­is­ter Satyen­dar Jain went to Dubai.

Re­ject­ing the BJP charge of ‘hid­den agenda’, AAP’s Raghav Chadha called it ‘out­landish’

Ke­jri­wal left for Dubai on Novem­ber 8 and will be back on Sun­day. “Last week, Satyen­dar Jain had gone to Dubai. Within a span of 10 days, CM Ke­jri­wal has gone to Dubai. AAP’s si­lence proves that there is some­thing wrong. It is clear that there is a hid­den agenda be­hind this visit,” Gupta al­leged.

AAP spokesper­son Raghav Chadha rejected the BJP charge as “out­landish”.

Delhi BJP chief Manoj Ti­wari al­leged that Ke­jri­wal was not se­ri­ous about pol­lu­tion. “Delhi is blan­keted by toxic smoke but Ke­jri­wal is on a tour of Dubai with his fam­ily,” he tweeted. He al­leged that the visit was about “con­vert­ing black money re­ceived as po­lit­i­cal do­na­tions into white money”.
