Congress objects Kejriwal’s ‘take bribe’ remark, files complaint with EC


Arvind-KejriwalNew Delhi.

Congress on Monday filed a complaint with Election Commission against AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal over his statement asking voters to accept money from political parties.

ICC general secretary Ajay Maken had told reporters yesterday that the party would seek legal opinion and meet the Election Commission against AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal for “insulting” the people of Delhi.

Congress also demanded an apology from Kejriwal to the people of Delhi after his controversial remarks on Sunday where he asked voters to take “bribes” from BJP and Congress but vote for AAP in the Assembly polls.

“Making such statements is illegal. It is like offering money to the people,” Maken, who is campaign committee chief of the party in Delhi, said.

At a jan sabha in Uttam Nagar on Sunday, AAP chief encouraged his supporters to accept bribes from rival parties — mostly BJP and Congress — but vote only for AAP.
