BJP’s allegations against Amanatullah Khan proved true: Gupta
The state BJP has claimed that the allegations leveled by it against AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan have been confirmed in the ACB raid. In fact, lakhs of rupees and non-licensed weapons have been recovered in the raids. The BJP has been saying from the very beginning that Arvind Kejriwal, the chief of the Aam Aadmi Party, is only giving protection to thieves and goons.
State BJP president Adesh Gupta said that after assuming power in Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal left no stone unturned to make Delhi the “riot capital” and its biggest culprits are Amanatullah Khan and Tahir Hussain. They demanded the sacking of Amanatullah Khan from the party as he is accused of several cases of corruption including misappropriation of Waqf Board properties, purchase of vehicles, tenancy in properties, illegal appointments.
