In a massive jolt to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi and CM Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi’s Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar has been arrested by the Delhi Police in connection with fake degree case. He was taken to the Hauz Khas Police station.
Although Tomar has been in trouble after his law degree from Bhagalpur University was found fake, he was protected and shielded by Kejriwal, who alleged political conspiracy behind this issue. The matter is still sub-judice.
AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashutosh lashed out at L-G Najeeb Jung and Modi Government at the centre, accusing him of vendetta. “This is a pressure tactic to scare us. We won’t tolerate this,” said Sanjay Singh. He also questioned why the Minister was not given any notice before his arrest and why the CM was kept in dark.
