Former Lt Governor Najeeb Jung Wednesday said, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal may face "criminal charges" over irregularities found by the Shunglu Committee in the decisions taken by the AAP government.
Jung also alleged that Kejriwal had set up a "secret unit" like a "counter IB" for suspected spying.
Jung told to leading media house, that the appointment of Nikunj Aggarwal, a relative of Kejriwal's wife, as OSD to Health Minister Satyendar Jain smacks of "nepotism and gross favouritism".
The AAP government had also appointed Jain's daughter Saumya Jain as an "advisor" to its mohalla clinics project.
On both these issues and appointments made by DCW Chairperson Swati Maliwal, Jung said that it amounted to "cheating, nepotism and favouritism" and that FIRs have been registered in these cases.
"Jain made an incorrect statement that she (Saumya) was not paid. Fact is she was paid but it was returned. FIR has also been registered in the case of Waqf board," he said.
He also claimed that CBI has filed an FIR on the setting up of the "secret unit"."No state government can set up a counter IB like this," he said.
When asked whether Kejriwal could face criminal charges, Jung said, "That is possible. There are cases that are being investigated and should the cases come to fruition and should the court find substance in the charge sheets then there is problem."
