New Delhi:

Yogendra Yadav-led Swaraj India on Tuesday has made serious allegation AAP government has been selling new autos worth Rs 1,85,000 at Rs 4,50,000 in connivance with "finance Mafia" in the national capital.

The party also demanded that a CBI inquiry be ordered into the "auto scam" and asked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to come clean on the issue.

"If an unemployed person decides to buy an auto rickshaw,he is made to pay anywhere between Rs 4,50,000 and Rs 4,70,000. Whereas the fact remains that the actual cost of a new auto is Rs 1,85,000, which goes on record as white money," party spokesperson Anupam claimed.

"The Transport Department then issues a no-dues certificate on verifying the scrapping certificate. Delhi government's transport department issues the LoI (Letter of intent) for buying the auto. The complete process followed is in clear violation of Supreme Court order.

He alleged that under the "nexus" between the "finance mafia and the government", an old auto is first transferred to some other license holder before it is scrapped.

"Almost all autos in Delhi are sold on finance, where the financiers play the role of coordinators of this 'auto scam'.

In this nexus, orders of the Supreme Court are also brazenly violated," he claimed.

However, the Delhi government declined to comment on the matter.
