Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Chief Minister Kejriwal today accused the Shunglu committee, which examined hundreds of decisions taken by government, of implicating his deputy Manish Sisodia in a "wrong case" and claimed the Centre was planning to get him arrested before polls in Punjab.

Kejriwal's allegations came a day after the panel submitted its report to Lt Governor Najeeb Jung after scrutinising around 400 files based on which the had taken key decisions since it came to power in February 2015. The had set up the committee in August.



"The PMO and are making grounds to arrest Manish Sisodia before elections," Kejriwal told a press conference, alleging Shunglu committee is "deliberately trying to implicate" Sisodia.

In the report, the Shunglu committee has pointed out several instances of violations of laid down rules and procedures by in taking major decisions. The LG's office is currently examining the report and is expected to take decisions accordingly.

The chief minister alleged that a complaint of cheating relating to V K Shunglu's election as Chairman of DPS Society was pending with the Lt Governor for last 18 months.

"In May last year, a complaint against him was sent to LG's office and the Centre. Instead of taking action, Centre and called him and asked him to implicate and in return, they will save him," Kejriwal alleged.

Efforts to get a reaction from Shunglu did not fructify.

Asked specifically about the "wrong case" as claimed by him to implicate Sisodia, Kejriwal did not give a direct reply.

"You just have to write two lines based on which a case can be filed. 15 MLAs have already been arrested. The court has rapped the Centre for arresting the MLAs. Despite that they are continuing with such tactics," he said.
