Disregarding erstwhile Team Anna member Kiran Bedi’s advice to spare the Opposition,Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday attacked the BJP and personally targeted Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

Kejriwal was supposed to gherao the CM’s bungalow,but dropped the idea after Indian Against Corruption volunteers,arrested on Sunday,were released. He alleged that Chouhan was involved in the coal scam,because he wrote a letter seeking favour for Reliance,causing Rs 30,000 crore loss to the exchequer. Later in the day,the Congress sought the CM’s clarification on the letter.

Kejriwal also referred to the ‘dumper scam’ and the crores yielded during raids at MP government employees.

MP BJP chief Prabhat Jha dismissed Kejriwal as a nobody. “He used to accuse politicians but has entered the same cesspool,” he said.

Refusing to comment on Bedi’s latest salvo at him,Kejriwal insisted that he enjoyed Hazare’s support and would quit the movement the moment Hazare severed his ties with it. Stating that his party will be announced on October 2,he admitted the outfit will not be in a position to contest the Gujarat polls.
