The political battle between BJP leads the central government and AAP lead Delhi state government has turned bitter after the CBI raids at Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal office.
Outspoken Indian cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi on Thursday lashed out at the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) stating that the state government does not need permission to probe the alleged financial irregularities in the cricket body.
Bedi’s statement came soon after the DDCA again turned down AAP allegations of financial irregularities by Finance Minister and its former chief Arun Jaitley.
“Why do they have this idea that Delhi state government needs permission from DDCA to probe the irregularities? If they are so clean then why did the BCCI needed to stop their annual grant. If anyone kindly bothers to explain it to me,” Bedi told PTI.
“Ok, they all are clean and are not involved in financial irregularities. Then why did the Delhi high Court need to appoint an independent observer in Justice (Retd) Mukul Mudgal to conduct a Test match? They are painting a hunky dory picture and let them paint one! Who’s stopping them,” a sarcastic Bedi signed off
Earlier on the second successive day, the entire DDCA mandarins held a press conference where they blew away all allegation made against them by the AAP against Jaitley.
Meanwhile, former India cricketer Kirti Azad has threatened to reveal more on clandestine misdeeds in DDCA.
AAP alleged that huge financial irregularities were executed during Arun Jaitley’s 13-year-old tenure as its chief.
“I will reveal more on Sunday. What AAP has shown is not even 15 per cent of what I have. I am not afraid of anyone or being suspended. I have done nothing wrong, I have been raising this issue for eight years,” Azad said.
Earlier, in the day, DDCA’s working president Chetan Chauhan said that Jaitley had, in fact, worked for the betterment of cricket in general and turned the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium into a world-class facility.
