Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has said that the allegations mounted against her in connection with the Rs 400 crore water tanker scam are politically motivated.

I am absolutely clean, Sheila Dixit said. “I followed all due procedures. These allegations are all politically motivated. They should find out the facts. Even today, those tankers are being used. It was for the service for the people of Delhi. Where does the question of scam come to picture? These allegations are all politically motivated,”

“The decisions regarding Jal board are taken collectively, including the CEOs, BJP members, MCD members. Everyone took the decision collectively. And why was the report sent to the ACB, only the Lieutenant Governor and Kejriwal ji can answer this,” the former Delhi CM added.

In June 2015, the Delhi Government had constituted a fact-finding committee to probe the irregularities in hiring some 385 stainless steel water tankers by the Delhi Jal Board in 2012 during the Congress’ rule.

On 17 June, Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung had forwarded a report to anti-graft agency Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) for further investigation on Thursday.

AAP leader Dilip Pandey has also accused BJP of being an ally of the Congress Party, The Financial Express reported. “What were BJP and Modi ji doing for the period of 1 year when they were running Delhi? Why no action?”, Dilip Pandey questioned.
