New Delhi, 26 Dec 2015: Social Democratic Party of India held a protest march from India Gate to Jantar Mantar and submitted a memorandum with the Prime Minister’s Office demanding the PM sacking of the tainted union minister Arun Jaitley. The party activists then staged a dharna at Ashoka Road New Delhi as they were blockaded by police.
It is very sad state of affair that not only the Delhi Government, but an MP of his own party Kirti Azad have come against Arun Jaitley accusing him of his involvement in the Delhi District Association Scam-DDCA with proof and not only the BJP President Amit Shah, Prime Minister Modi too is seen defending him, said Irfan Ahmed, SDPI State Vice President.
The Prime Minister praising and defending the scam tainted Arun Jaitley is against the spirit of democracy, said the SDPI Delhi State President Adv Aslam Ahmed. He lashed out at Modi for exercising double standards, as he talks against corruption but is seen encouraging the corrupt. Modi in his lectures talks against corruption but is defending the corrupt, said Aslam.
Delhi State General Secretary Israr Ahmed Khan questioned PM Modi for giving clean chit to Arun Jaitley whereas the probe is just setup. Modiji, why is it that you are able to give clean chit to your minister whereas the probe is just setup by the Delhi Government and the investigation is not at all complete, questioned Israr. He urged the Modi government to sack the tainted Arun Jaitley immediately and let the law take its own course.
It is to be noted that the Delhi government has appointed a commission to probe DDCA scam in which the Finance Minister is alleged to be involved. And BJP’s own MP Kirti Azad has also presented some hard evidences in a press meet and even in the Parliament. In spite of these accusations, PM Narendra Modi has defended Arun Jaitley by praising him as very clean.
Vakil Johree, Javed Akhlaqui, Nazim Makrani and huge number of Cadres and Members of the party participated in the protest march.
