Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj on Thursday asserted that Delhi cabinet minister Satyendra Jain is being hounded for trying to regularise the unauthorised colonies in the national capital.
The member of legislative assembly from Greater Kailash, Bharadwaj said, "AAP Government takes immense pride that our government is working for people living in Unauthorised Colonies. This was our main election promise for 3/4th of the Delhi population which lives in Unauthorised colonies. Modi Government is trying to stall regularisation of unauthorised colonies."
He also claimed that Satyendra Jain has not invested even a rupee in any company or land after 2013.
"It is laughable that Satyendra Jain in 2013 knew that he will contest elections in 2015 and will become Urban Development Minister and will later convert his land in unauthorised Colony into regularised land," Bharadwaj said.
Earlier in the evening, official sources revealed that Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has granted sanction to prosecute Satyendra Kumar Jain in a case registered by CBI on August 24, 2017, for allegedly acquiring assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.
