Drama begins: AAP’s Sanjay Singh whose own links to PFI emerged recently, accuses Minister Giriraj Singh of violating poll code

ED sources had revealed that Md Parvez, the PFI chief was regularly in touch with Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh through Whatsapp chats, phone calls and also by way of direct meetings.

Just before Delhi was set to vote in 2020 elections on Saturday, on Friday AAP began its usual drama. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) politician Sanjay Singh, whose own links with PFI emerged recently, accused Union Minister Giriraj Singh of distributing money in Budh Vihar Phase 1 in Rithala Vidhan Sabha. He alleged that 240 BJP MPs were creating problems in different constituencies. Singh had also urged the Election Commission to take action.

In another tweet, Sanjay Singh reiterated his previous claim and added that the Union Minister was caught red-handed by people, distributing cash in Rithala. The video allegedly showed Giriraj Singh sitting inside a jewellery shop surrounded by several people. While one can see Giriraj Singh in the video, there is no proof that he was distributing cash to voters as alleged by Sanjay Singh.


In a press conference, Sanjay Singh also said, “BJP violated the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) during the entire campaigning period, by giving inflammatory statements.” He also urged the Election Commission to remove all BJP MPs who are not the residents of Delhi to be removed from the national capital. This has sparked a new controversy before the Delhi Assembly elections that are scheduled to take place on February 8.

The credibility of the Aam Aadmi Party has declined over the years, particularly after it was exposed that the gunman, Kapil Gujjar, who fired 3 shots in the air at Shaheen Bagh was an AAP member. Another man Mohammed Luqman found brandishing a gun at Shaheen Bagh also had alleged links to AAP. The police had also established a nexus between Sanjay Singh, radical Islamist organisation PFI and the Shaheen Bagh protests.

Out of these 73 accounts- 27 were directly maintained by PFI, 9 accounts were in the name of PFI’s related entity- Rehab India Foundation and the other 37 were in the name of certain individuals or entities in 17 different banks.
