Turning up the heat against the LG, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal claimed on 10 June that Lt Governor Najeeb Jung "will" register an FIR against his deputy Manish Sisodia over some "fictitious" advertisement scam.
"LG getting FIR registered in ACB against Manish Sisodia on some fictitious ad scam. We welcome LG to do that," Kejriwal said in a tweet.
Interestingly, Sisodia had referred to a similar possibility during his intervention in the ongoing session of the Delhi Assembly. He also welcomed a CAG audit of the ads released by the AAP government.
In a series of tweets, Kejriwal added that the ACB will summon Transport Minister Gopal Rai and went on to ask him to present himself before the concerned authority before summons are issued.
"Sources - ACB will summon Gopal Rai. Gopal Rai ji, pl visit ACB urself on Mon rather than wait ACB summons. LG/ Modiji, we are strong people who tread on the path of truth We are not scared of your cowardly threats," he tweeted.
The Delhi Assembly had on Thursday formed a nine-member special inquiry committee to probe alleged irregularities in "restoring" the license of a fair price shop in Santnagar of North Delhi's Burari, including "serious" charges against Jung in connection with it.
