A day after the Delhi Minister Sandeep Kumar sacked, Arvind Kejriwal has released a video message today.
Speaking up on Sandeep Kumar who has been sacked over an alleged sex tape, Arvind Kejriwal said he was very pained by what Social welfare minister had done.
“Sandeep betrayed the Aam Aadmi Party movement and the sacrifices made by all those who had quit their jobs for taking the movement ahead. Sandeep betrayed the entire movement. Aam Aadmi Party is a hope for the entire Nation and he has betrayed that hope,” Kejriwal said.
Further defending his decision to give a ticket to Sandeep to fight assembly elections, Kejriwal says “While giving a ticket to anyone, we investigate at three levels, but it’s not written on anyone’s forehead about how his image is? Even a father can’t foretell what his son would become and what would he do in future.”
Hitting out at BJP, Kejriwal further says “Unlike other parties we don’t try to cover up the wrongdoings. When evidence comes up against our ministers, we take instant action, unlike other parties.”

Meanwhile, earlier today, sacked Minister Sandeep Kumar in his defence said that he is paying a price of being a Dalit. “It is a conspiracy against me as I am a Dalit,” he said.
