NEW DELHI, Dec 18 - The AAP today put �five specific� questions to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley relating to its allegations of corruption in Delhi�s cricket body DDCA under his watch and accused him of giving �vague� responses to the charges.

Calling Jaitley a �master of half truths and beautiful lies�, AAP leader Ashutosh made certain fresh allegations against the Finance Minister and said his comments that there was no specific charges against him was �misleading�.

Jaitley has strongly rejected the allegations, calling them a propaganda technique of Kejriwal to deflect attention when he himself was in the �dock� following a CBI raid in Delhi Secretariat.

Addressing a press conference here, Ashutosh accused DDCA of allowing a private firm, 21st Century, to sub-lease 10 corporate boxes at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium and claimed the firm, owned by a friend of Jaitley, was extended financial benefit to the tune of over Rs 5 crore for the deal. The AAP leader asked Jaitley to clarify who were members of the 21st Century and whether it had any of his kin. The AAP leader also accused Jaitley of putting pressure on the ONGC to give an amount of Rs 5 crore to Hockey India and sought to know what was the reason behind it.

Alleging huge financial bungling in reconstruction of the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, the AAP leader said although public sector entity EPIL was paid Rs 57 crore for the project, the remaining Rs 57 crore out of the total expenditure of Rs 114 crore was distributed among nine companies.

�The registered address, e-mail and directors of these companies were same. Did Jaitley know about these companies and is it not corruption,� asked the AAP leader.

On Jaitley�s comments that the SFIO report had absolved him, Ashutosh said the Finance Minister hid the fact that punishment for offences mentioned by the Central agency included imprisonment. � PTI
