The pamphlet, conceived and designed by party national secretary RP Singh, will be distributed in all Assembly constituencies of Delhi during a campaign starting July 11.

Referring to Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar, who was arrested yesterday by CBI for allegedly favouring a private firm in award of Delhi government contracts, Upadhyay alleged that “consultancy, contract, and co-terminus appointments” are budding in the AAP government.

Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta accused Kejriwal and Water Minister Kapil Mishra of “sitting” over the report of a fact-finding committee on the alleged Rs 400 crore tanker scam.

“The present government is protecting the accused in the tanker scam which occurred under previous government,” he said.

He also demanded that Kejriwal tell people why he allowed Kumar to continue as his Principal Secretary despite the “serious” charge of corruption against him.

Kumar was arrested yesterday by the CBI in connection with a case of showing undue favours to a private company in awarding government contracts worth over Rs 50 crore.
