Salman Khurshid To Sue Kejriwal For Damages
Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid is planning to file a civil as well as a criminal case against social activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal.
India Against Corruption alleged financial irregularities in the functioning of Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust run by Salman Khurshid and his wife Louise.
Arvind Kejriwal said he along with disabled activists will gherao the residence of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Friday demanding resignation of the Law Minister. A news channel on Tuesday alleged that the NGO had forged signatures of senior officials in several districts of Uttar Pradesh depriving disabled people of their money.
Louise, the Trust’s Project Director, rejected the allegation that the NGO run by them indulged in financial irregularities in grants given by Union Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to the trust for the welfare of physically impaired people. She termed the charges as “devoid of merit, false, malicious and baseless”.
