Delhi liquor scam: Kavitha, others bribed AAP leader with Rs.100 cr, ED alleges
On Thursday the Enforcement Directorate (ED) said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) used the money generated from the alleged Delhi liquor scam for election campaigning in Goa. “Investigation of the trail of this kickback so far has revealed that part of these funds was used in the election campaign of the AAP,” said the ED in the chargesheet filed in the case.
The policy promoted cartel formations through back door awarding an exorbitant wholesale profit margin of 12 percent and a huge retail profit margin of 185 percent and incentivized other illegal activities on account of criminal conspiracy by the top leaders of AAP to extract kickbacks from the businesses, stated the ED.
According to the ED, cash payments amounting to almost Rs.70 lakh were made to the volunteers who were part of AAP’s survey teams. The probe agency said AAP’s communications in-charge Vijay Nair “told certain persons involved in the campaign-related work to receive the payments in cash”.
ED also revealed that AAP`s Vijay Nair, who orchestrated this entire scam is not an ordinary worker of the AAP but a close associate of Arvind Kejriwal, the CM of Delhi, and was closely interacting with the Deputy CM for the Excise policy-related matters. Vijay Nair had arranged a meeting of the owner/controller of IndoSpirits Sameer Mahandru, with Arvind Kejriwal, CM, Delhi and when that didn`t materialize, he arranged a video call through facetime on his phone for Sameer and Arvind Kejriwal, where Arvind said to Sameer that, Vijay is his boy and that Sameer should trust him and carry on with him.
It further said Vijay Nair, on behalf of AAP, received kickbacks to the tune of Rs.100 crore from a group comprising of YSRCP MP Magunta Sreenivasulu Reddy, his son Raghav Magunta, Aurobindo Pharma director P Sarath Chandra Reddy, Telangana CM KCR‘s daughter Kavitha Kalvakuntla.
Hyderabad-based businessman Abhishek Boinpally had facilitated the transfer of the said money in conspiracy with Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia‘s aide Dinesh Arora, said the central agency.
