Former dy CM Ajit Pawar takes on IAC leader Arvind Kejriwal and former IPS officer-turned-laywer Y P Singh

Hitting out at India Against Corruption (IAC) supremo Arvind Kejriwal and former IPS officer-cum-RTI activist Y P Singh, NCP leader Ajit Pawar said the country only believes those who conduct press conferences at 4 pm and show some documents of so-called corruption to the media. However, when we show the documents, no one is bothered to even take a look at it.

Pawar said this, without actually taking their names, during the concluding ceremony of two-day Nationalist Congress Party’s convention in the city yesterday. Enraged by the allegations made by Y P Singh regarding allotting of huge tracts of land to private companies, Pawar saidpeople don’t have the courage to talk while they are in service. However, no sooner they retire, they start making frivolous allegations.

“Even people trust such officers, and don’t believe the minister who had been holding that particular department. Holding press conference at 4 pm, and making baseless allegations has become a trend these days,” said the former deputy CM. Pawar added that it is easier to make allegations, but if one accuses anybody of something then it’s his duty to prove it. “Otherwise the person on whom the allegations are levelled, have to unnecessarily lead a life where people look upon him with suspicion,” he said.
