New Delhi: A city court on Thursday reserved order on a complaint seeking lodging of an FIR against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for allegedly misleading people by saying that municipal corporations are not under the AAP government's control.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Munish Markan fixed July 2 for pronouncement of the order after hearing the complaint seeking direction to the SHO of Karawal Nagar police station in North East Delhi to register an FIR against Kejriwal under Section 406 (criminal breach of trust) of IPC.
The complaint, filed by Brijesh Shukla of Swaraj Janta Party, has claimed that Kejriwal had come out with a full-page advertisement in newspapers in October last saying there were misunderstandings regarding a strike by MCD employees and he wanted to make it clear that it was wrong to say that the corporations come under the Delhi government.
"In November 2015, I filed an RTI with Delhi government which in its reply has said that the corporations are under its control. Action should be initiated against him (Kejriwal) for misleading people and spending public money for spreading lies," the complainant said.
Shukla claimed he had also filed complaints to the Deputy Commissioner of Police and the Lieutenant Governor seeking lodging of FIR against Kejriwal for allegedly misappropriating public fund.
He claimed that no action was taken by the police on his complaint.
