New Delhi: Soon after the Union Home Ministry on Thursday granted sanction to prosecute Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain in a disproportionate assets case registered by the CBI, the BJP accused Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of misusing his post as he himself was "corrupt".
Speaking to reporters, Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party chief Manoj Tiwari said: "Kejriwal is misusing the post of Chief Minister... he does not take up the cases of corruption as he himself has become corrupt."
"Today's MHA orders to prosecute Jain prove he was involved in illegal practices and thus, both Jain and Kejriwal have been exposed," said the BJP MP from northeast Delhi.
His remarks came soon after the MHA granted sanction to prosecute Jain in a disproportionate assets case registered by the CBI in 2017.
Jain is accused of floating several shell companies in Delhi including Akichan Developers Private Ltd, Indo Metal Impex Private Ltd, Paryas Infosolutions Private Ltd and Manglayatan Projects Private Ltd during 2009-10 and 2010-11 for alleged money laundering.
"This practice of hiding facts and publishing false information won't work anymore now as the law will take it's own course and soon they will be behind bars," Tiwari added.
