Media baron Subhash Chandra drops a bombshell about Arvind Kejriwal

Rajya Sabha MP Dr. Subhash Chandra, who is also the Chairman of Essel Group that owns and operates various businesses in the media sector as Zee Group, yesterday revealed a few unknown things about AAP supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Dr. Chandra was interacting with some students at Kanya Maha Vidyalaya in Jalandhar, Punjab.

When asked about his views on the government led by Kejriwal, he went on to reveal his old association with the Delhi Chief Minister. He started by talking about how Kejriwal was once his prodigy and how he extended all possible help, including financial, to Kejriwal from around 2004 to 2014. Dr. Chandra said that he was instrumental in bringing people like Soli Sorabjee and Aamir Khan to Kejriwal.

He also talked about Manish Sisodia, Kejriwal’s aide and Deputy CM of Delhi, who once worked as Zee News reporter before getting into activism. According to Dr. Chandra, Kejriwal requested him (Subhash Chandra) in 2002 to allow Sisodia to work for him for a few years and Chandra agreed. Sisodia wasn’t sure about his future in politics and had conveyed to Dr. Chandra that he wanted to return to his media job if things didn’t turn out right.

Sisodia came for full and final settlement with Zee News only in 2013, Dr. Chandra revealed, i.e. when AAP had been formed and was receiving support from various sections of the public and the mainstream media. AAP went on to form government in Delhi subsequently, twice.

After asserting how closely he was associated with Kejriwal and his team, he dropped his bombshell:

He said that they (Kejriwal and Sisodia) cannot be trusted, neither in case of women (the program he was addressing was about the role of women in nation building) or poor people and that they were the biggest liars he had come across in his 66 years of life.


He asked the people of Punjab not to trust the Aam Aadmi Party or Arvind Kejriwal in the upcoming assembly elections, where AAP is hopeful of forming the government.

Dr. Chandra, however, conceded that people of Punjab had tough choice as even the ruling BJP-SAD government had failed to protect the people of Punjab from the drug menace. While stating that the incumbent govt isn’t responsible for the drug problem, he put it on record that they did nothing to stop or rectify the problem.
