Watch! If proven guilty, Corrupt Ministers in AAP Government should be hanged: Anna Hazare

Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare has once again hit out at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Anna said all that all the corrupt leaders in the present AAP government in Delhi should be hanged to death, if proven guilty. “I always say ministers found guilty of corruption should be hanged ,” Anna Hazare said.

Anna who had previously slammed Kejriwal for failing to deliver clean governance, issued a statement after AAP’s founder member & axed minister Kapil Mishra claimed that he had seen Kejriwal accepting a bribe of Rs 2 Crore from AAP’s Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain. Mishra also claimed that Kejriwal and two of his aides tried to scamper evidence in the water tanker scam when Ex Delhi CM Sheila Dixit was the chairperson of the Delhi Jal Board.

Anna said that Kapil Mishra had only made the revelation after he was sacked from the Minister’s post. Hazare said that the Delhi Chief Minister should come out and ask for a fair investigation into the matter. Anna had earlier hit out at Kejriwal after the MCD debacle. The party which has lost all its credibility had invested its last hope in the MCD elections. But, Kejriwal’s fake promises & false allegations failed to resurrect the party.

On Sunday suspended minister, Kapil Mishra met Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and complained about corruption in the AAP Government. The L-G has forwarded the complaint to the ACB (Anti-corruption Branch) and sought a report in seven days. Mishra however made it clear that he would not be leaving the party and his fight was only against the corruption within the party and not the ‘ideology.’ Hazare said that Kejriwal should step down from the CM’s post if the corruption charges made against him are proven.
