Even enemies can’t believe that Arvind Kejriwal is corrupt: Vishwas
New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas on Sunday jumped in support of party convenor Arvind Kejriwal, who has been accused of practising corruption by his own party leader Kapil Mishra.
Backing the Delhi Chief Minister, Vishwas claimed that even his worst enemies cannot imagine him to be corrupt. His remarks came in reply to sacked Water Minister Kapil Mishra's allegation that he himself saw Kejriwal accepting Rs 2 crore in cash from Health Minister Satyendra Jain.
He also blamed Jain of facilitating a land deal worth Rs 50 crore for a relative of Kejriwal. It may be mentioned that Mishra shares close bonding with Vishwas.
"If there was anything wrong, Mishra should have raised it on the party platform. But openly making such allegations without any evidence is not right," Vishwas told the media here.
"I am pained by these allegations. Party workers are also dejected because of this."
Kumar Vishwas added that if Mishra had any proof of corruption against Jain or Kejriwal - or any other party leader including him - he should come forward with it at the party forum.
He said the Political Affairs Committee of the Aam Aadmi Party would decide action on the issue.
"I want to say that I have a firm belief that Kejriwal cannot accept bribe. Not even his worst enemies can believe that," he concluded.
