Delhi L-G Anil Baijal has asked the principal secretary of vigilance to take “action as per rules”, in a plea seeking prosecution sanction against CM Arvind Kejriwal in an alleged PWD scam. This prompted a sharp response from the AAP, who, while referring to Baijal as a “BJP agent”, claimed that he was “misusing his constitutional post”.

The case pertains to three FIRs that the ACB lodged last month after a complaint was filed by Roads Anti-Corruption Organisation founder Rahul Sharma. Sharma alleged irregularities in the grant of contracts for roads and sewer lines in 2015-16. One of the FIRs has been registered against the company of Kejriwal’s late brother-in-law Surender Kumar Bansal. Kejriwal has not been named in the complaints, but on June 7 Sharma filed an application to the L-G seeking prosecution sanction in the cases against Kejriwal.

On Saturday, in a written communication, principal secretary (vigilance) Ashwani Kumar, said a representation from Rahul Sharma has been sent for necessary action as per rules.

AAP spokesperson Ashutosh attacked the L-G, claiming that he was using both Sharma and sacked minister Kapil Mishra to “tarnish” Kejriwal’s image by “misusing his constitutional post”.
