Kirti Azad demands CBI probe

Making it clear that he was not targeting Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, he sought to drag Congress leaders in the row, alleging that the previous UPA government did not take action because many of its nominees like Rajeev Shukla, Naveen Jindal and Arvinder Singh Lovely were working as DDCA directors and were “party to wrongdoing and remiss in their duties”. Suspended BJP MP Kirti Azad today rejected his party’s argument that a Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SIFO) probe had found no scam in the DDCA affairs and sought a comprehensive probe by central agencies, including CBI Without due diligence, crores of rupees were transferred to bank accounts having fake addresses. It was a monumental fraud as the same people for the same work were paid again and again. I have evidence,” he claimed, adding, “My fight is against corruption in sports bodies. It is not against Jaitley. I fail to understand where I have targeted the finance minister. I have said nothing against the party. I have always been a loyal soldier. But I will continue to fight against corruption. CBI and probe agencies like ED and DRI should carry out an extensive inquiry into the DDCA affairs,” he said. Azad also wondered if attempts were being made to “hide” corruption, saying that instead of raiding the DDCA, the CBI had only sent it notices, giving the accused a chance to destroy proof. Jaitley and DDCA have denied allegations made by Azad, a former international cricketer. He said he and others had written over 200 letters to Jaitley about the “financial irregularities” in the cricket body when he headed it but “nothing happened”.
