Protestor at Kejriwal's news meet is Vadra's friend: IAC

India Against Corruption (IAC) has claimed that the man who disrupted Arvind Kejriwal's press conference on Wednesday is close to the Gandhi family.

The man, who the IAC identified as one Jagdish Kumar Sharma, had disrupted Arvind Kejriwal's press conference on 31 October as the anti-corruption activist made revelations and charges against Reliance Industries and its alleged nexus with various political parties including the Congress.

The IAC today released several pictures of Jagdish Kumar as evidence. The pictures show Kumar with the Gandhi family at several events. Many of the pictures show him accompanying Robert Vadra.

However, Sharma has denied any connection with the Gandhi family and said, "Kejriwal said aam-aadmi must wake up and ask questions. I have done that."

In a statement released by IAC it asked, "has the Nehru-Gandhi family descended to Salman Khurshid's level where they would send goons to disrupt our meeting?"

It also said that in "such circumstances, any attack on IAC activists would have to be presumed to be at the behest of the Congress if unless the contrary is proved."

Sharma created a furore during Kejriwal's conference and went on to ask Kejriwal as to why neither he or his wife were transferred for the last 20 years during his service as an Indian Revenue Services (IRS) officer.

At the press meet, Sharma had shouted saying, "Kejriwal and company are fooling the country". Sharma's supporters who were raising anti-Kejriwal slogans were evicted by IAC supporters.
