Water tanker issue is politically motivated, says Sheila Dikshit

Former Delhi chief minister and Congress leader Sheila Dikshit is now back in highlights after recent meetings with the Gandhi’s and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi accusing her of the Rs 400-crore tanker scam that happened when she was in power in the national capital.

Yesterday, Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung cleared a inquiry against Dikshit in the alleged tanker scam after a complaint was sent to LG’s office by Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra.

Kapil Mishra tweeted:


After allegations came, Dikshit on Friday hit out at the AAP government, asking who AAP minister Kapil Mishra is and questioned the timing of his allegations.

“What are the allegations? There were no allegations earlier. Now who is this Mishra, I do not know,” she added.

“Why is this ‘scam’ coming out now? It is politically motivated,” Dikshit said.

She then spoke about the process regarding purchase of the tankers.

“I didn’t make the decision alone. IAS officers, MCD members, even some BJP memebers were part of the decision making.”

“The tankers they are accusing me of choosing are still going strong,” she added.
