Enforcement Directorate unveils alleged AAP involvement in Jal Board scam

TAGS

In an explosive development that has sent shockwaves through the corridors of Indian politics, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has laid bare a scandal involving the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), led by Arvind Kejriwal. According to the ED, leaders of AAP have been funneling funds from the Jal Board scam into the party’s election coffers. This bombshell revelation came to light after the ED conducted targeted raids on 12 locations closely linked to the party’s top brass. The agency’s probe has unearthed evidence suggesting AAP’s deep entanglement in financial malfeasance, marking this as the second instance where the party has been accused of kickbacks and illicit election financing. Previously, allegations surfaced that AAP had diverted bribes from the now-defunct Delhi excise policy to fund their campaign efforts in the Goa assembly elections.

The ED’s crackdown has yielded a trove of incriminating materials, including damning documents and digital evidence collected from raids across Delhi, Varanasi, and Chandigarh. The agency’s haul includes goods valued at approximately ₹1.97 crore and foreign currency worth ₹4 lakh. Central to this scandal is the former Delhi Jal Board Chief Engineer, Jagdish Arora, accused of awarding contracts worth ₹38 crore to MS NKG Infrastructure, a firm allegedly lacking the technical qualifications for such projects. Arora is said to have channeled these funds directly to AAP leaders, a claim that has now led to his arrest alongside contractor Anil Kumar Aggarwal.

AAP has vehemently denied any wrongdoing, decrying the ED’s allegations as baseless and asserting its innocence in the strongest terms. The party’s statement not only rebuffs the claims but also accuses the ED of acting as a political tool for the BJP, promising to take legal action against what it perceives as defamation. AAP’s defiance is underscored by a bold comparison to Nazi propaganda tactics, hinting at a broader political witch hunt orchestrated by the Modi government.
