New Delhi: Answering questions about whether Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal would be subjected to the Anti-Corruption Branch’s (ACB) probe into the water tanker scam, ACB Chief MK Meena on Friday said that anyone who is found guilty of suppressing information will be liable for probe.
Meena said that the report of the first inquiry into the water tanker scam was submitted to Kejriwal on 26th August, 2015. He stated that the Delhi Chief Minister, instead of taking action, sat on the preliminary report.
“We will search for where it went. And if there is any legal angle we could find against anyone, then we’ll do the necessary,” said the ACB chief, who reiterated without mentioning Kejriwal’s name that if the AAP leader is caught sitting on the files, he will be liable for probe.
The ACB will also be looking into whether the company accused of amassing public money is still in action in New Delhi.
Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit reacted to the news by saying that it was all a conspiracy against her.
“This decision was taken collectively,” said the former CM, who said that the high-quality, erosion-free tankers had been availed to the public.
The BJP government has alleged a financial irregularity of over Rs 400 crore.
