Only Court Order Can Stop DDCA Probe- Kejriwal

Making his position clear, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has today said that the Commission of Inquiry under Gopal Subramaniam, constituted by the Delhi government to probe into the alleged irregularities in DDCA will continue and only the court can stop it from working.

He said if the Ministry of Home Affairs or Prime Minister’s Office or Lt Governor is aggrieved, they can  approach the court, and the Delhi government has set up  commission as per law.

“DDCA enquiry commission set up by Delhi Govt is as per law and constitution of India. Centre’s opinion not binding on Del govt. Commission will continue work. If LG or MHA or PMO aggrieved, they may approach Court. Only a court order can stop commission’s work,” Mr. Kejriwal tweeted.

Meanwhile the Central government had earlier declared the constitution of the commission as illegal and unconstitutional. However this has been countered by the AAP government which says the BJP is trying to save Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

The DDCA Scam surfaced up when former cricketer Kirti Azad  alleged irregularities in the functioning of the sports body in 2014, while Arun Jaitley was its chief for 13 years. The Aam Aadmi Party took over the issue saying that the body under Mr. Jaitley  has drawn off huge amount through bogus companies and other irregularities including the team selection.
