DDCA probe will continue: Kejriwal

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Jan 8 - Setting up yet another confrontation with the Centre, a defiant Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said the commission of inquiry constituted by Delhi Government will continue its probe into alleged irregularities in DDCA even after it was declared illegal by Home Ministry.

He said the Commission has been appointed in accordance with law and the Constitution, and asked the Lt Governor, Ministry of Home Affairs and the Prime Minister�s Office to approach the judiciary in case they are �aggrieved� with the panel that was formed through a notification on December 22 last year.

�DDCA enquiry commission, set up by Delhi Govt, is as per law and Constitution of India. Centre�s opinion not binding on Del govt. Commission will continue work. If LG or MHA or PMO aggrieved, they may approach Court. Only a court order can stop commission�s work,� Kejriwal, who is in Kolkata, said in a series of tweets.

Earlier, the Centre had declared as �unconstitutional and illegal� the setting up of the Commission of Inquiry into the DDCA affairs by the AAP dispensation.

The AAP Government last month had appointed former Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium to probe alleged irregularities in the DDCA, which was headed by Jaitley from 2000 to 2013.

The party has been accusing Jaitley of wrongdoings during his tenure as the DDCA chief. � PTI
