Swami questions Kejriwal for attacking only Vadra

October 16, 2012 18:03 IST

Alleging that Robert Vadra used his 'connections' with the Gandhi family to accumulate wealth and commit other improprieties, Janata Party chief Subramaniam Swami on Tuesday questioned Arvind Kejriwal for restricting his expose to Vadra only and not attacking the Congress president on the issue.

"The expose about accumulation of huge wealth by Vadra in a short span of time and other improprieties is fine, but why did Kejriwal not hit out against the Congress president who could be the facilitator of misdemeanour of her son in-law," he asked.

"Who was the leader whose influence Vadra used to make huge wealth?" Swami asked and questioned as to why Kejriwal was deliberately refraining from the name of that person.

Swami also took to task Kejriwal for restricting his expose only against Vadra to score points through media and not going to the court to nail the Congress president's son-in-law if at all he wanted to root out corruption from the political system.

The Janata Party chief further expressed apprehension about Kejriwal's proposed political party finding its moorings in the national polity and said that by merely parachuting in political field, a party does not necessarily makes a place for itself.

One requires to do a lot of hard work and put in place a structure before floating a political party, he said raising a question mark on Kejriwal's political future.
