New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has questioned the silence of Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi over the Reliance gas issue and also asked him whether he would give ticket to ministers who have corruption charges against them in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
In a letter to Gandhi dated February 22, party's National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal launched an attack against the Congress leader saying, "Why are you and BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra) Modi quiet on this crucial issue. It is widely believed that if UPA comes to power you will become the Prime Minister.
"People say, no important decision is taken by the UPA government without asking your family. People want to know this from you whether you support the government's decision of Mukesh Ambani selling gas at 8 dollars per unit," Kejriwal said.
He also asked Gandhi whether Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance Industries, was funding the party for seeking favours in return from the government and when the AAP-led Delhi government ordered to register an FIR against Ambani and Petroleum Minister Veerappa Moily over the issue, why did senior Congress members oppose the decision?
