Huge CNG scam behind odd-even policy: Woman who threw ink at Kejriwal
The woman, who threw ink at Arvind Kejriwal at a weekend rally to mark the “success” of the automobile rationing rule, has alleged a “large CNG scam” behind the unusual-even formula, saying she’d evidence of the scandal that she’s going to present in court.
“The odd-even rule was positive, but behind that was a large CNG Scam, of which I ‘d a sting. That’s the reason I needed to meet CM and Gopal Rai ji (Delhi transport minister), but they did not agree to meet,” Bhavna Arora told ANI on Monday.
“I will submit all papers and the sting before the court. Investigation ought to be done in the matter,” she said a day after throwing ink at the Delhi CM while he was addressing a gathering called at the Chhatrasal stadium on the positive response to the odd-even rule. The fortnight-long experiment finished on Jan 15.
On Sunday, Arora came quite near the lectern where Kejriwal waved some papers towards him, was talking, and then threw ink at the chief minister. There were ink blots on the cheeks of Kejriwal and a few others standing close to him were also seen wiping off the liquid.
The 26-year old woman, who claimed to be a part of the Punjab unit of Aam Aadmi Sena, whisked away to Model Town police station for questioning and was later detained by police. A case was also filed. Delhi police has sought permission from a duty magistrate to detain the 26-year-old woman.
Shortly following the assault, the AAP authorities charged the BJP and Delhi Police of a conspiracy as an agitated deputy CM Manish Sisodia slammed the Delhi Police, calling the incident a “major security lapse” and wondered whether it was “sitting in readiness to stage an assault on Kejriwal”.
“They might also kill people since they can’t stand the success of the odd-even scheme and AAP’s popularity among the masses. Cops is a part of the conspiracy,” Sisodia said referring to the BJP leadership in the Centre. The two authorities have been at loggerheads since long and tensions have risen from time to time owing to issues like the CBI raids at the Delhi secretariat, or control over Delhi Police as well as the inquiry of the alleged DDCA corruption scam.
Sisodia said the problem was not about Kejriwal’s security as the impacts, had it been acid assault or a bomb, would have been ghastly.
“Centre should possess responsibility and take action because such incidents have occurred before too. Individuals who are staging these events, hatching conspiracies from behind the scene, should be acted against,” he added.
