AAP MLA Rajesh Gupta is also accused of taking money, although no action has been taken against him so far.
Strict action should be taken: Deputy CM Sisodia
On this matter, Delhi’s Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said that even if someone took money from someone and someone gave money to someone, he still did not get the ticket. It means that ticket is not sold in Aam Aadmi Party. The Aam Aadmi Party has passed this test that money does not work for tickets here. It is obvious that if someone here and there says that I will get the Aam Aadmi Party ticket by taking money, then do not believe it at all. The person who talks about giving tickets after taking money would be the biggest liar. The proof of this has come to the fore.
He said that there should be a fair inquiry into the action of the ACB. Strictest action should be taken for misusing Aam Aadmi Party.
Ramesh Bidhuri said – you sold 90 percent tickets
BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri said that you can guess that they can take 90 lakhs for distributing tickets, what service will that public representative do? After waking up in the morning, everyone takes the name of God, but when they turn on the TV, somewhere the Chief Minister who cheated Delhi, his face and his misdeeds come in front. He also alleged that AAP has sold 90 per cent tickets.
Kapil Mishra called it the ‘Kejriwal model of loot’
BJP leader Kapil Mishra tweeted after this action and wrote that ACB has arrested the brother-in-law and PA of MLA Akhileshpati Tripathi of Model Town. They were selling corporation tickets for Rs 90 lakh. ACB has audio recordings of four MLAs who were handling money, this money further went to Durgesh, Sisodia and Kejriwal. This is the Kejriwal model of loot.
