Lashing out at BJP MP Mahesh Girri, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said CM Arvind Kejriwal cannot go for a debate with him as he is an “accused” in the murder of NDMC official M M Khan and that he should argue in court and tell what is his “relation” with the accused.
Sisodia also sought to know why BJP leaders are coming out in “support” of hotel owner Ramesh Kakkar who is a prime accused in the murder case. Girri, however, rubbished Sisodia’s allegation that he is an “accused” in the case, terming it as totally “baseless”.
The BJP MP, meanwhile, continued for the second day his hunger strike outside the residence of Kejriwal, demanding that he prove his allegations regarding the murder of Khan.
Girri had asked Kejriwal to either prove his charge through against him or “resign” from the post of Chief Minister. Giri had asked the Delhi Chief Minister for a public debate over his allegations.
“Ramesh Kakkar is under arrest who is an alleged murderer. Why did Mahesh Girri meet the LG along with Kakkar? Girri should answer questions being raised over his alleged involvement in the murder of M M Khan.
“We will definitely prove CM’s accusation against Girri, but BJP should also answer what is its relation with Kakkar for whom its MP and former MLAs are coming out in his support…They must apologise to the entire country for getting an honest officer killed,” Sisodia said here.
He also said, “At this time, Maheish Girri is an accused and in view of this, CM cannot debate him and instead, police, lawyers should argue with him over his involvement in the murder case. Girri should argue in court and tell what is his relation with Kakkar.”
“The Deputy CM’s allegation is totally baseless. They are showing one recommendation letter to paint me as guilty. I write thousands of such letters to the Lt Governor and if I had actually put any pressure on the LG, where is that particular letter. The attachments they are showing have nothing to do with me,” Girri said.
Khan, an estate officer of NDMC, was shot dead in Jamia Nagar on May 16, a day before he was scheduled to pass the final order on the lease terms of a hotel which was functioning on a property leased out by the civic body.
