New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday sacked Minister for Women and Child Development and Social Welfare Sandeep Kumar after an objectionable CD surfaced against the minister.

The Delhi CM Kejriwal took to his Twitter account and said, "Recd "objectionable" CD of minister Sandeep Kr. AAP stands for propriety in public life. That can't be compromised Removing him from Cabinet wid immediate effect."


Soon after the action against the legislator over the alleged sex tape, Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has "zero tolerance" towards any such act and action was taken within half-an-hour of receiving the CD.
Sisodia told reporters that AAP was a party of principles. "We have zero tolerance against any kind of corruption, crime or any such activity," he said. 
"The CM received an objectionable CD of Sandeep Kumar and within half an hour, the decision to remove the minister was taken and Kumar was sacked," Sisodia said.

This is yet another blow for the AAP government who's MLAs and MPs have constantly been embroiled in controversies and is a huge setback for the party.

Responding to the incident, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Siddharth Nath Singh said, "From day one, Arvind Kejriwal has followed opportunistic politics."
It is also expected that the BJP will stage a protest outside Kejriwal's residence on Thursday over the issue.
