BJP MP Kirti Azad requests Delhi Police to file FIR against Arun Jaitley

NewDelhi/Nagpur: BJP MP Kirti Azad and former India cricketer has formally requested the Delhi Police to register an FIR against Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley-linked cricket body.

Azad, in his complaint requested police to file FIR against president, secretary and other concerned officials of Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA). The Member of Parliament in his letter to the SHO, IP Estate, said that rules were flouted when Jaitley was the DDCA president.

In its complaint, he even alleged that the DDCA runs a bar within the premises of Ferozshah Kotla stadium and has been given a license by the Excise department of the Delhi government. In his letter, Azad even talked about how rules were flouted and liquor was circulated at Ferozshah Kotla on October 2, 2013 which is considered as dry day.

Azad said that this is not just a violation of Delhi Excise Act but also a violation of Prevention of Insult to National Honour Act (1971).

This is not the first time when BJP has suffered embarrassment with Azad’s remarks. Earlier, Azad had tweeted that the leak of the Keith Vaz emails was an inside job against Sushma Swaraj.

He even said that the responsibility to stop the IPL loot rested not just with Lalit Modi but also with other members at the helm of affairs in the BCCI. Azad has said that Arun Jaitley, Sharad Pawar, N Srinivasan, Rajiv Shukla and other BCCI members should also be held responsible for the FEMA violations during IPL season 2.

Earlier, he had demanded a probe against Jaitley and other BCCI members for foreign exchange violations during the IPL T20 season two league.
