“Making a list requires only pen, paper and a subjective mind,” Congress remarked on Friday, in a rebuff to Arvind Kejriwal for drawing a list of “corrupt” politicians that also included Rahul Gandhi.
“The list requires only two things. Pen and paper and a subjective mind. This Chief Minister had earlier showed that he had scant regard for rules.
“We are not a justice, jury and prosecutor rolled into one. We do not have to confess that we are anarchist as this Chief Minister seems to have done,” party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters at the AICC briefing.
Singhvi said Congress’ support to AAP government in Delhi continues because it did not want the government to fall for want of support from its eight MLAs though there are “differences on 99 percent issues” between the two parties.
He said that the process to fight corruption is like bringing the RTI, Lokpal bill and and other similar measures, which the UPA government has done. “Merely naming somebody hanging from the tree is not the legal process,” he said.

Asked about the proposed bill of Kejriwal’s party on Delhi Lokayukta, Singhvi said, “After thorough discussion, we have passed a Lokpal bill. A full stop now needs to be put somewhere. We should now concentrate on how to implement that.
As far as Lokayukta in Delhi is concerned, the Chief Minister is free to do what he deems fit.”
A Congress leader speaking on the condition of anonymity said that Lokpal bill passed by the central government is the touchstone as it has also been approved by Anna Hazare and sounded dismissive about “any super Anna bill”, a veiled reference to Kejriwal’s plans to bring further amendments.
Targeting Rahul Gandhi, Kejriwal on Friday accused him of being corrupt and said the party will field candidates against him, UPA ministers and leaders of other parties.
He also drew up a list of ‘corrupt’ politicians in which Gandhi and several UPA ministers figured.
