New Delhi: Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari, on Saturday, demanded a probe into the “role” of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal in a Public Works Department (PWD) “scam”.

At a press conference, he showed a copy of a police complaint filed by a PWD engineer, alleging that he was threatened after he thwarted the attempt by the workers of a company to damage a drain at Nangloi in 2016.

 

The company in question was owned by Mr Kejriwal’s relatives — late Surender Bansal and his son Vinay Kumar. “Kejriwal shielded his relatives’ company which damaged drains and roads in order to obtain repair orders... Kejriwal’s role in this scam should immediately be probed by the CBI or the ACB,” Mr Tiwari said.

Earlier this week, the ACB lodged three FIRs, including one against a company of late Bansal, regarding a “scam” in the PWD. The FIRs were lodged on the basis of a complaint from Rahul Sharma, the founder of an NGO, the Roads Anti-Corruption Organisation (RACO).
