New Delhi. Facing flak for terming the observation of court as ‘completely wrong‘ in indicting Somnath Bharti for tampering with evidence, Arvind Kejriwal has now asked the concerned court to submit whatever proof they have against the law minister of Delhi.
The court and the concerned judge are supposed to submit the proof to the Government of Delhi. These proofs will then be evaluated by an internal Lokpal appointed by AAP.
The decision was taken after few of the enraged AAP members and volunteers were already on their way to gather newspaper clippings to prove how the special judge of CBI was corrupt and possibly even a BJP agent.
“Eventually better sense prevailed,” claimed a member who wasn’t Vinod Binny.
“Yes we have set up our own Lokpal as you simply can’t trust anyone on such issues. You never know they could make politically motivated charges,” argued Yogendra Yadav, who has urged judge to submit the raw format of the proof as well.
Sources say that Prashant Bhushan had earlier proposed a referendum to overrule the observations of the court, but his personal opinions were put on hold as a tried and tested method of internal Lokpal was already there.
Confirming the development, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal further declared that only after Somnath is found guilty by the internal Lokpal, will they be convinced of the court’s observation and not question it.
If reports are to be believed, AAP was initially shocked with Bharti’s indictment by court as they had not thought that Indian law also had provisions to go beyond allegations.
“We were totally unaware of the procedure. We seriously thought alleging and accusing is the end of it and felt that character assassination and tarnishing of reputation of the accused that follows is the real punishment,” an AAP activist told Faking News on Twitter.
The AAP fan further claimed it to be the precise reason why Delhi government didn’t initiate any inquiry against Sheila Dixit after coming to power.
“But now that it has come to our knowledge that one has to be tried in court of law with proper evidence, we have decided to look into it and do it in our own court,” the AAP fan with Arvind Kejriwal DP declared.
