New Delhi: Congress and BJP leaders on Thursday slammed Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) after a sex tape emerged leading to the sacking of a Delhi minister, Sandeep Kumar.
Former Chief Minister Shiela Dixit told a news channel: "It's not just the ministers. Twenty-22 MLAs have been involved in some corruption... The AAP government has run foul of law so many times now."
Accusing the AAP of running "the most corrupt government Delhi has ever seen", she said: "Honest governance is gone. It's finished."
"Sacking is not going to make any difference. If Kejriwal has found him guilty, why not throw him out of the party?" asked Sachin Pilot, another Congress leader.
BJP leader Vijender Gupta raised doubts on the different versions coming regarding Sandeep Kumar's sacking.
"Kejriwal said he sacked him within half hour of getting the information while Sandeep Kumar says he resigned. Which is correct only Kejriwal can say."
