Disabled Activists to Gherao Sonia's Residence: Kejriwal
send via whatsapp
Activist Arvind Kejriwal today said he along with disabled activists will gherao the residence of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Friday demanding resignation of Law Minsiter Salman Khurshid following allegations that the NGO run by him and his wife has indulged in irregularities.

Kejriwal, who also demanded Khurshid's resignation from the Cabinet, announced his protest programme after a group of 35-40 disabled persons met him at his office here.

"Money bungling in the NGO floated by the Law Minister's wife is a matter of shame. It is unfortunate to have such Law Minister in the country.

"We demand resignation of the Law Minister and immediate arrest of his wife. We will gherao Sonia Gandhi's residence asking for Khurshid's resignation," Kejriwal said.

A Hindi news channel yesterday alleged that the NGO forged signatures of senior officials in several districts of Uttar Pradesh depriving disabled people of their money.

Khurshid's wife Louise Khurshid denied the allegations and said it was "devoid of any merit, and is false, malicious and baseless".

In a statement, she said she herself had requested UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on September 17 to conduct an inquiry so that "truth is revealed and it is established that the Trust has not forged the signatures of any officers of the state of UP".

In a statement, the Kejriwal-led India Against Corruption demanded a case be registered and Louise, who was the project director of the NGO, be arrested immediately.

"Being powerful she may tamper easily with the evidence...Since this incident has taken place in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, who has said that this matter would be investigated, should get an FIR filed immediately and get the case investigated.

"If this does not happen then there would be a suspicion that SP and UPA are hand in glove with each other. People would suspect that there is an understanding between the UPA and SP that UPA would help SP from the centre whenever there are cases against SP and SP would return the favour," it said.

This sauve looking,but in reality a rascal,said the other day that he was prepared to give his life for Sonia.He is not prepared to give his life for Bharat Mata goes without saying.On the same show he growled 'why can't this IAC people just shut up'.This is typical arrogance of all Sonia's domestic servants.Now this fellow is exposed for taking away the money meant for the disabled people.

 Yesterday night Headlines today broadcast extensively about how the Zakir Hussain 
Trust managed by Salmankhurshid and family gobbled up at the rate of RS71 lakhs per year from 1986 but gobbled up the entire amount by producing bogus and faked certification by fake rubber stamp and fake signatures. The lawless law minister is law unto himself.  IF the guardian of law itself is like a peon of government office producing fake medical bills, what is the condition of law and order. Is he and family just torso , mute, deaf, blind and lame to misappropriate this much for such long 26 years. Fourteen ministers are involved in coal scam  besides number of MPs and ministers in other scams. What does this show? The president of the party is epitome of  loot and hence the party members are emboldened to indulge in since dishonest person cannot question another dishonest person.  It is time  that mango voters of this banana republic tell back to pack off
