Delhi Congress president demands Kejriwal’s resignation over ‘ration scam’

Vastavam web: Alleging a scam in the public distribution system in the national capital, Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken today demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and a CBI probe into it.Maken said that Kejriwal cannot “absolve” himself of the responsibility after “corruption” was flagged the comptroller and auditor general (CAG). He said said irregularities were also pointed out by officers concerned.”This gives rise to doubt whether the reported transportation of SFAs (specified food articles) had actually taken place and possibility of pilferage could not be ruled out,” the report stated.

Although the officers pointed out the “scam” surrounding the ration distribution system in Delhi in five important circulars, which have been put on the public domain, the Kejriwal government did not act to stop it, alleged Maken.”The five circulars, issued in 2015, pointing to irregularities expose the AAP government’s claim of ignorance about corruption and scam in the public distribution system, in Delhi,” Maken said, demanding Kejriwal’s resignation.
