After the Income Tax department summoned Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain, the Congress snubbed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and said that the Arvind Kejriwal-led party is the hallmark of corruption and immorality.

The Congress also demanded Jain's resignation. Lashing out at AAP, Congress leader Tom Vadakkan said: "Corruption, immorality are the hall mark of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The health Minister of the state should be thrown out for incompetence".

"He has been summoned by the IT department, there might be another issue involved. We would like to see how this proceeds and we would wait for the outcome," he added.

Jain, who has come under the scanner of the Income Tax department for allegedly indulging in hawala transfers worth nearly Rs 17 crores, said it was a reassessment and he was only called as a witness.

The IT department has asked Jain to appear before it on 4 October. According to the IT Department, four companies of Jain have illegally transferred Rs 17 crores while he received cheques issued to these companies.

He is alleged to have used that money to buy properties near unauthorised colonies. The four companies belonging to Jain are under I-T scanner are - Indo metal impax, Akinchan developers Pvt Ltd, Paryas Info solution and Manglyatan projects.
