“AAP Ke Deewane” Minister’s sex CD, is there no one clean in Kejriwal’s party

A couple of years ago, Arvind Kejriwal’s fledgling Aam Admi Party had rode to power on the plank of cleanliness and honesty in politics. But during this short span of time, party’s tall claims have been torn apart with 3 ministers sacked on account of dishonesty and sex scandals while cases are pending against its 11 MLAs.

Sandeep KumarThe most shameful case coming to light is of Delhi Minister Sandeep Kumar whose sex CD has come to the fore. Though Kejriwal has removed him from ministry. But the scar of Sandeep Kumar’s shameful act will cost dear to the party in the coming election of Punjab where also a number of allegations of selling tickets and mibehaviour with women party members have come to light.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has sacked his social welfare minister, Sandeep Kumar, after receiving what he termed an “objectionable CD” of him.

Party sources said a CD submitted to Mr Kejriwal purportedly showed the minister in a compromising position with two women. It also had some objectionable photographs.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia the decision was taken at a meeting barely within half-an-hour.

“AAP is a party of ideals. AAP has a zero tolerance policy towards corruption, scandals,” he said. “Ministers found taking bribes were removed immediately as soon as it was found. Action will be taken swiftly against any member irrespective of status or position.”

Mr Kejriwal also tweeted:

Delhi cabinet has 6 ministers — each of them holds multiple portfolios. Besides social welfare, Mr Kumar had also held the Women and Child Development portfolio.

In October last year, Mr Kejriwal had sacked Asim Ahmed Khan, 38, who was minister for food and environment. He had been caught asking for bribe.

Tape submitted to Arvind Kejriwal shows Sandeep Kumar in a compromising position, say sources.

“I will not even spare my son, Manish Sisodia or anyone else if he is corrupt,” Mr Kejriwal had declared at the time.

In June 2015, Jitender Tomar resigned as law minister after he was accused of faking his college degree. He was replaced by Kapil Mishra, who, within two months, was replaced as law minister by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

Last month, Mr Kejriwal had intervened on Twitter to abort a poorly conceived scheme of Mr Kumar to remove beggars from Delhi’s roads.

Mr Kumar reportedly had plans to launch a drive to pick up beggars and move them to a state-run home. Social activists had said the plan lacked merit because it offered no rehabilitation prospects.
