A day before Delhi goes to the polls, son of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate made a controversial claim that his father had paid Rs 6 crore to party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to get the ticket.
The allegation was made by Uday, son of AAP’s West Delhi candidate Balbir Singh Jakhar, while speaking to the mediapersons.
All the allegations against me are baseless. I have never met or interacted with my son in the recent past. This an attempt to tarnish my image just before the polls : @bsjakharaap pic.twitter.com/bmSA5NVDJE

Uday, while speaking to the media, alleged, “He (Jakhar) paid Rs 6 crore to Kejriwal for the ticket… My father told me that he paid the amount to Kejriwal.”
He went on to allege, “The more shocking part is that Kejriwal, who was party of the Anti-Corruption movement, is so corrupt and taking money.”
Uday also said that this was not the only thing he wanted to tell the world to clear his conscience.
He alleged that his father was among those who tried to save Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, who was awarded life term by Delhi High Court in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
“My father also decided to represent Sajjan Kumar in the court. He was paid huge amount to bail him out,” Uday said. He also clarified that he does not have affiliation with any political party.
