AAP seeks probe into illegal gun trade charges against Ajay Rai

Sunday, 20 April 2014 - 8:19pm IST | Place: Varanasi | Agency: PTI

Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh today demanded a probe into the alleged involvement of Congress candidate from Varanasi Ajay Rai in illegal gun trade, a day after BJP made similar demand citing a media report.

AAP also slammed BJP and said, "before making such allegations, BJP should introspect as a number of candidates with criminal backgrounds are there in the party".

Singh was addressing a press conference here, along with party leader Gopal Rai and journalist-turned-politician Ashutosh.

On BJP leader Amit Shah's comment that Modi wave will convert into a tsunami after April 24 when Modi files his nomination, Singh quipped tsunami brings a lot of destruction.

"It seems that he (Modi) is coming to make destruction of this holy city," Singh said.

Gopal Rai alleged that farmers in Jamnagar and other parts of Gujarat were struggling to get the compensation of their agricultural lands that have been taken and given at cheap rates to industrialists like Adani and Ambani.

Rai said that Kejriwal's campaign will be intensified from tomorrow in rural areas where AAP volunteers would reach for door-to-door campaign.

"Even chaupals will be hold and this will continue till May 10," Rai said.

Speaking on the alleged snooping on a woman in Gujarat, Ashutosh said that those who misused the government intelligence for stalking woman for gathering personal information in their state are talking of Nirbhaya fund and 'Bharat ki Beti' (daughters of India) today.

"Even Congress party from the last four months could not get any judge for initiating an investigation against the 'snoopgate' case", Ashutosh said.

Singh said that Kejriwal will file his nomination on April 23.
