No point repeating allegations against Pawar: Kejriwal

Refutes former IPS officer Y P Singh's allegations that he concealed information about Sharad Pawar

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Refuting former IPS officer Y P Singh's allegations that he concealed information about Sharad Pawar, Arvind Kejriwal today said he had raised corruption charges against the NCP chief earlier and there was no point in repeating it.

Kejriwal said it was "not right" on part of Singh to allege that he had not revealed evidence against Pawar while targeting BJP chief Nitin Gadkari and pointed out that they had held a press conference and demanded his removal during a fast in August.

"The allegation that we concealed the evidences are not right. There is no point in repeating the allegations. We are getting evidences from everywhere. It is easy to level allegations...We are selective because we are very responsible. Without evidence, we won't raise any allegations. What Y P Singh has raised are very strong evidences and we too have raised it," he said.

He also alleged that a farmer, whom they have named as a victim of Gadkari's alleged land usurping in Maharashtra, has been pressurised.

At a press conference in Mumbai yesterday, Singh alleged that Kejriwal had information to expose Pawar but had concealed facts.

"Details of the larger irrigation scam were not brought out," Singh alleged.
