A criminal complaint was today filed against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a court here seeking filing of an FIR against him, alleging he has misled the people of Delhi by stating that municipal corporations are not under the AAP government’s control.
The complainant, Brijesh Shukla of Swaraj Janta Party, sought direction to the SHO of Karawal Nagar police station in north east Delhi to register an FIR against Kejriwal under Section 406 (criminal breach of trust) of IPC.
The plea, filed in Karkardooma court, would come up for hearing on February 10.
Kejriwal had come out with a full-page advertisement in newspapers in October last saying there were misunderstandings regarding a strike by MCD employees and he wanted to make it clear that it was wrong to say that the corporations come under the Delhi government, Shukla claimed.
“In November, 2015, I filed an RTI with Delhi government which in its reply, has said that the corporations are under its control. Action should be initiated against him for misleading people and spending public money for spreading lies,” the complainant said.
He said he had also filed complaints to the Deputy Commissioner of Police of north east district and the LG seeking registration of FIR against Kejriwal for allegedly misappropriating public fund.
He claimed that no action was taken by the police on his complaint.
