Irani slams Kejriwal over Satyendar Jain taking massage by 'rapist' video
New Delhi, Nov 23 (PTI) Union Minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal alleging that his jailed minister Satyendar Jain was taking service of a "rapist" in Tihar prison.
In videos that surfaced recently, Jain was purportedly seen getting a massage in his prison cell inside Tihar jail.
It was claimed by sources that the person seen massaging Jain in his prison cell was accused of raping a minor.
People of Delhi are awaiting with hope strengthening of facilities for women and improvement in their lives, she said, and added "but the leaders and ministers of Kejriwal are committing the biggest sin in view of women upliftment by taking services of a rapist in jail." Campaigning for BJP's MCD poll candidate in Rajendra Nagar, Irani alleged "although Kejriwal has not completely realised the dream of poor people for electricity supply, his corrupt minister in jail is comfortably watches TV in jail." Videos that purportedly showed Jain taking a massage also showed a TV inside his prison cell, and showed the minister taking visitors in his cell.
People in Delhi do not have clean drinking water but Kejriwal's minister is "minting money" in the jail, Irani alleged.
Sukesh Chandrashekhar, a conman who is currently lodged in Tihar jail on several charges of fraud, had recently alleged paying Rs 10 crore to Jain for protection inside jail.
Irani said that the elections for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) are important not only for Delhi but also for the country.
Voting for 250 wards of MCD will be held on December 4. PTI VIT VN VN
