New Delhi, January 22

A large number of Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) activists took out a protest march demanding resignation of the, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on corruption issue.

Addressing the activists, the DPCC president, Ajay Maken said he had begun his fight against Kejriwal’s corruption two and a half years ago, and he has just won a fight against the 20 Aam Aadmi Party MLAs on the office-of-profit issue buy getting them disqualified.

“We will win our second battle only when Kejriwal is removed from the post of the Chief Minister,” he said.

Carrying placards and banners, the protestors shouted slogans against the corruption of the Kejriwal government, asking him to step down if an iota of morality was left in him. They shouted slogans, “Bhrasht Kejriwal gaddi chhodo, Sachchai se muh na modo”, “Kejriwal ki khul gayi pol, Kejriwal ka bistar gol”, “Bhrashtachar ki ati machai, Vidhansabha ki sadasyata ganwai”.

Maken said Kejriwal, who had said his MLAs would serve the people like ordinary workers, and would fight against corruption, did the contrary after coming to power as the AAP government got fully enmeshed in corruption as soon as they assumed power.

He said within one year after coming to power, the AAP government gave a massive 400 per cent hike in the salaries of its MLAs, to make it around Rs 36 lakh per year per MLA. If this was not corruption, then what was it? Ajay Maken asked.
