BJP turned the heat on AAP after major discrepancies related to the functioning of AAP government in Delhi were revealed in the Shunglu committee report. The BJP accused AAP of promoting nepotism and taking rash and illegal decisions. BJP also demanded the suspension of AAP government, which had registered a massive victory in Delhi assembly by winning 65 of the 70 seats. The Shunglu committee report was based on the examination of 404 files related to various decisions taken by the AAP government in Delhi.
Speaking on the development, Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said, “The attempt by the Delhi government is violative of established legal and constitutional positions and we demand clarification from AAP and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The kind of information in the Shunglu Committee report pertains very seriously to issues of propriety and making decisions on subjects wherein it (AAP government) has no role to play.” The various discrepancies mentioned in the report include questionable appointments, foreign travels, flamboyant decisions, etc.
