Kapil Sibal to Arvind Kejriwal: 'Show evidence or leave'
New Delhi: Minister of Communication and Information Technology Kapil Sibal on Saturday criticised Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for naming him in the list of corrupt leaders, and said Kejriwal should leave his position if he is making baseless allegations without proof.
“I am very surprised that he called me corrupt,” said Sibal. “I will give him two days’ time to collect evidence and prove all charges made by him. If he is able to prove his accusations against me, I will resign from my post and quit politics. But if he is making baseless allegations, then he must leave his position,” he added.
Kejriwal on Friday read out his list, and urged AAP members to treat this year’s general election as a revolution to cleanse the nation’s politics. His list included Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi, P Chidambaram, Salman Khurshid, Kapil Sibal, BJP leaders Nitin Gadkari, BS Yeddyurappa, Anurag Thakur, and others like Mayawati, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Sharad Pawar, Farooq Abdullah and Jagan Mohan Reddy.
