Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said he will get probed alleged irregularities in road and sewer development works by the Public Works Department. “Please send all documents. I will immediately get them investigated,” he tweeted, reacting to a report of news channel ‘Aajtak’.

According to the report, based on Right to Information (RTI) responses, the department have paid a large sum of money to contractors for development or repair work they never undertook. Satyendar Jain, who is under the scanner of CBI for alleged money laundering, holds the PWD portfolio in the Kejriwal-led AAP government.

The Anti Corruption Branch had last month registered three separate FIRs in the alleged PWD scam, including one against the company of Kejriwal’s deceased relative Surender Kumar Bansal.

The FIRs were registered on the basis of a complaint by an organisation called Roads Anti-Corruption Organisation (RACO), which has alleged irregularities in the grant of contracts for roads and sewer lines in Delhi in 2015-16.

    VYAPAM scam of MP in which most people of RSS and BJP are accussed. Even 48-50 witnesses have been murdered. No investigation in this scam. Scams are not being investigated but trivial vindictive politics against Kejriwal is being done.

      No other MP MLA is being found by the BJP. Even 70 year of corruption is not being investigated by BJP. All MLAs of AAP are corrupt .... ? BJP Congress and other corrupt parties are hand in gloves and out to oust Kejriwal, who is an IITian Magasasey Award winner for RTI implementation in India. Hats off to Kejriwal.

        There was a thief long time ago. He learnt during a family gathering that there was a FIR lodged against him. He looked into every ones eyes, and said, 'he is going to police station to get the matter investigated by chachaji'.

            There are corruption charges under his nose, involving his brother-in-law. Instead of investigating these chrges, this joker is asking for proof-do ents from the public. His past Minister Mishra has given lot of details on the corruption in the PWD. This man is a shameless person he still thinks he can further fool the public.

                    AK is just another Indian politician who owns a party for self. His most powerful and confident minister is Satyendra Jain and that shows his integrity

                      And you are from the organized AAPtard group? Actually you guys are failing to understand, just like many other politicians, that India is changing - voters are changing. I have been saying from day 1 that this AK is the biggest FRAUD!!! No paid BJP media personnel are required - nationalists like us are enough to protest and write against s and criminals and jokers like AK.
