New Delhi: With just a day to go for the Lok Sabha polls in Delhi, a major controversy has erupted within the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) after the son of an AAP candidate on Saturday claimed that his father paid AAP president and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal a sum of Rs 6 crores to get a ticket. AAP’s West Delhi candidate Balbir Singh Jakhar’s son Uday Jakhar made explosive claims that his father had paid Arvind Kejriwal the amount for the ticket.
“He had told me that he had paid Kejriwal Rs 6 crores and I had warned him to not do such a thing and align with the tukde-tukde gang. The bribe was one of the problems,” Uday told Times Now.
He continued his attack on Delhi CM and said that he portrays a ‘clean image’ and said that it is an allegation against him. “A person who has portrayed a clean image, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, who stands with Anna Hazare, bringer of hope for India and New Delhi, this is an allegation on him...that he has sold out West Delhi for Rs 6 crore,” he said.
Uday accused his father, Balbir Singh of not helping out with finances for his education but making sure he spent crores of rupees to bail out 1984 anti-Sikh riots accused Sajjan Kumar and "pay Kejriwal" for a Lok Sabha ticket.
