Sheila Dikshit is criticizing the Lokayukta to avoid legal action against her - BJP
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that the Chief Minister of Delhi is criticizing the Lokayukta of Delhi so that she may be able to escape legal action. The BJP will ensure that Smt. Sheila Dikshit gets punishment for influencing the voters by making attractive promises and expose her conspiracy before the people and law.
The Lokayukta of Delhi Justice Manmohan Sareen had recommended to the President of India for taking action against the Chief Minister for making false promise of providing 60,000 houses under Rajiv Ratan Aawas Yojna to influence the voters just before the Assembly elections in 2008. When this letter was forwarded to the Chief Minister’s office by the President then the Chief Minister distorted the facts and made incorrect reply that she had not said that houses shall be allotted. The Chief Minister gave a written reply that she had said that 60,000 houses shall be constructed for the poor. The President of India did not take any action on this ground.
The Lokayukta tried to find out the reasons for not taking any stern action against the Chief Minister who had given misleading and false statement for securing votes. He found that the Chief Minister tried to mislead the President of India in her reply. The Lokayukta got statement of the Chief Minister translated by the translator of Delhi High Court. It was found that the Chief Minister lied to the President of India. The Chief Minister had promised to the poor of Delhi before the Assembly elections in 2008 that they shall be provided 60,000 houses at cheap rates. At the time when the Chief Minister had promised that 60,000 houses shall be allotted, there was no scheme with the Government for the houses to the poor.
The Lokayukta of Delhi treated the false reply of Chief Minister sent to the President of India as serious and again wrote to the President that action should be taken against the Chief Minister of Delhi Smt. Sheila Dikshit for misleading the President’s office. Furious due to the recommendation of the Lokayukta for again recommending action to the President, the Chief Minister of Delhi strongly criticized the Lokayukta Justice Manmohan Sareen saying that the Lokayukta is not above the President of India. Shri Gupta has termed this as the obstinacy of the Chief Minister and said that Smt. Sheila Dikshit has lost her balance due to the fear of legal action and she is criticizing the Lokayukta which is not proper in any way. Shri Gupta has demanded the Prime Minister to take necessary action against this behaviour of the Chief Minister.
