Kejriwal invites Sonia,PM, Rahul for a public debate on corruption
 

Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday launched a counter attack through Twitter by inviting Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh for a public debate on corruption .

 

 Kejriwal  said "First of all  Congress must must answer on Robert Vadra issue  before asking any questions  about his NGO . He said  he will answer all of Digvijaya's questions but first Congress should come clean on Robert Vadra issue.

 

Instead , Kejriwal has challenged  that  Congress president Sonia Gandhi, prime minister manmohan SIngh  and general secretary Rahul Gandhi to come for  a public debate on corruption charges .

 

A day after Digvijaya Singh questioned kejriwal on foreign funding behind his NGO and its links with US NGO called "Avaaz'


Kejriwal has tweeted saying, "I request Mr Digvijay to encourage Mrs Gandhi, PM or Mr Rahul Gandhi to come for a public debate. Place n time of their choice. Let's question each other n let public question us on personal n public issues. Digvijay ready We had put some questions to Mr Robert Vadra & the PM. Let them answer first. Then, we will answer."



On social networking site twitter ,Kejriwal tweeted "I request Mr Digvijay to encourage UPA chairperson  Sonia  Gandhi, prime minister Manmohan Singh,general secretary Rahul Gandhi to come for a public debate."


He said on Twitter: "We had put some questions to Mr Robert Vadra and the PM. Let them answer first. Then, we will answer all questions from  Digvijay"


The activist has said that if Digvijaya Singh can't convince his party chief and the PM, it will give an impression that the Congress general secretary is doing all this for cheap publicity and divert attention.


"If Digvijay can't convince his party bosses or the PM, then people wud think he is doing all this for cheap publicity and to divert attn (attention)," he said on twitter.


He also tweeted: "Place n time of their choice. Let's question each other n let public question us on personal n public issues. Digvijay ready?"

 

Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh Saturday stepped up his attack on India Against Corruption (IAC) activist Arvind Kejirwal, asking him 27 questions but the IAC termed this a tactic to divert the people's attention from cases of corruption.

Singh asked Kejriwal about foreign funding of an NGO with whom he is associated and violation of service rules while he was an Indian Revenue Service officer.

 

Why there are no details of individual donors and Corporate donors on any website of your NGOs....Is it a fact that the NGO, Kabir, with whom you are closely associated, received 172000 USD and 197000 USD from Ford Foundation in 2005 and 2009 respectively?

 

"Was this foreign money used to organise seminars,advocacy, discussions, programmes, social media campaigns and publicity material related to the issue of corruption?" Singh asked.

 

The AICC leader also sought to know Kejriwal's "relationship with US based NGO Avaaz" which, he said, has been funding civil disobedience movement in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt and Syria. Singh said, "What is the logistical and other support your anti-corruption movement received from Avaaz?"

 

In the backdrop of the controversy surrounding land deals of some of Kejriwal's associates including Prashant Bhusan and Anjali Damania, Singh asked the activist whether he will be "willing to take responsibility as a leader and resign from IAC or give up public life, if any of his staff members of colleagues in the IAC are found to have been involved in any irregularity."

 

Singh reminded while Kejriwal asked for the resignation of Law Minister Salman Khurshid for irregularity committed by people working in his Trust, he "never objected when Anna Hazare said that he cannot be held responsible for the action of colleagues/office-bearers in Bhrashtachar Virodhi Jan Andolan Trust" Singh, a known detractor of Kejriwal, also sought to know from him as to why he "never raised issue of corruption in the BJP-ruled states" though local press and political parties and CAG have reported cases of corruption there.


"You have been asking for Jan Lokpal in Government of India but have not questioned Narendra Modi, who has successfully blocked appointment of Lokayuktas in Gujarat since 2002. Would be please explain, why?", he asked. Singh also asked some questions related to Kejriwal and his wife's service tenure and rules saying "you have always preached that we, politicians, should not violate rules and regulations but to the best of my knowledge, you have violated provisions of All India Service Rules yourself.


"Is it a fact that in your entire service of 20 years in Indian Revenue Service, you never served outside Delhi even though the norms of the service are that all IRS officers serve a posting only for three years in a place? Is it a fact that even your wife, who is also an IRS officer, has never served outside Delhi?

"Is it a fact that any serving officer, who goes on study leave for two years with full pay has to submit a full report of his study to the Government? Is it a fact that you did not submit a full report but only an interim report with a promise to submit a full report later, which you never did," he asked.

Singh sought to know whether Kejriwal, while in service, took permission from the ministry to receive foreign and private funds for his NGO. "As a serving officer of IRS did you take permission of Government to form your NGO?, Singh asked.

Singh further asked Kejriwal, "Is it a fact that you took a cheque of Rs 2 crore to Anna Hazare and he refused to accept as he felt collection was much more? A senior member of your Core Committee has alleged that you have misappropriated funds to the tune of Rs 20 crore. Why you have not responded to this charge?"
