TNI Bureau: In his latest revelation, anti-graft activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday targeted BJP President Nitin Gadkari by saying that rules were flouted by the opposition leader to acquire farmers’ land in Vidarbha.
The India Against Corruption (IAC) activist claimed that farmers in Vidarbha were being threatened by Gadkari’s men. Kejriwal went on to say that the water meant for irrigation was being diverted to Gadkari’s firms.
Kejriwal accused him of corruption in construction of irrigation dams. He said that Gadkari was illegally favoured by Maharashtra government in allocation of farm land and also alleged quid pro quo with the ruling political party in this land allotment.
The BJP is planning to counter Kejriwal’s allegations against Gadkari at a press conference in the evening.
