Kejriwal suppressed bigger scam involving Pawar family says YP Singh
Moneylife Digital Team 18 October 2012

According to the former IPS officer turned lawyers, the Pawar family in involved in a bigger irrigation scam and despite knowing all the facts, Kejriwal kept quite on the Lavasa issue


YP Singh, former IPS officer and lawyer has alleged that Arving Kejriwal kept quite despite having full knowledge of a big irrigation scam involving Sharad Pawar family in Maharashtra.

"Why did Kejriwal undermine a big irrigation scam which had a clear-cut quid pro quo with the senior politician? This scam was fully known to Kejriwal but he chose to take-up a frivolous and petty case of Nitin Gadkar, which also contained a false allegation," Singh said.

According to Singh, Ajit Pawar, nephew of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader, allotted 341 acres of land procured for Krishna Valley irrigation project, to Lavasa at Rs23,000 per month for a 30 year lease. At that time, Supriya Sule, daughter of Sharad Pawar and her husband Sadanand Sule together owned 20.8% shares in Lavas City Corp, which they sold out later, Singh said.

The former IPS officer said, he and Kejriwal did the Lavasa investigation together, yet the India Against Corruption (IAC) leader chose not to expose this scam and instead targetted smaller scam involving BJP president Nitin Gadkari.

He also said that anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare seems to have a soft corner for the senior Pawar. "Anna Hazare vehemently took up the case of Lavasa, but later remained silent. I had given him details on Lavasa but don't know why he had a soft corner for Sharad Pawar," Singh said.

Why not we look at this from a different angle? Arvind Kejriwal is another individual doing certain things in his own way. Let us not prescribe rules for him so long as he is not violating normal codes of conduct a ‘public person’ is expected to follow. Let him decide his priorities. If another individual has an ‘exposure’ to make, don’t wait for Kejriwal, go ahead and make it. Let us agree on one point. Public life needs a cleansing. Whosoever contributes to the process, let us welcome.
