New Delhi: BJP Rajya Sabha MP Sudhanshu Trivedi launched a scathing attack on the Arvind Kejriwal-led government in the nation’s capital, accusing the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of recruiting party workers in government roles. This allegation comes at a time when the AAP is already facing multiple charges in the Delhi excise policy scandal.
During a joint press conference on Saturday with the BJP’s Delhi chief, Virendraa Sachdeva, Trivedi asserted, “AAP workers are being recruited in government positions. And in a bid to return the favour, these workers are using their government posts to extend benefits to Kejriwal’s party. The CM, who has used public money to build a palace for himself, is now helping party workers earn lakhs.”
Trivedi went on to claim that several AAP workers have begun deleting their social media accounts out of fear that their actions, involving leveraging their government jobs for the benefit of the ruling party, will be exposed to the public.
Backing these assertions, the BJP’s Delhi chief Sachdeva stated, “The Lieutenant Governor of Delhi has revoked nearly 437 recruitments (by the AAP government). The first list had 116 people, and when we started gathering more information about them, they started deleting their social media accounts as they feared that their misdeeds would become public knowledge. These people are holding crushy government jobs and earning lakhs, and a cut of their earnings are going the AAP.”
