Government to move Supreme Court against Kejriwal's FIR
The Centre on Saturday is likely to move the Supreme Court against former Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's First Information Report (FIR) against the Congress-led UPA government and Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) over gas prices.
"The Prime Minister is believed to have consulted senior ministers on this matter two days ago," reported CNN-IBN.
Hours after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government-backed Jan Lokpal Bill was not tabled in the Delhi Assembly, Kejriwal resigned as Delhi Chief Minister on Friday after remaining in power for 49 days.
"Today, my entire government has resigned. I can resign from the Chief Minister's chair a 100 times for the Lokpal Bill...We had our Cabinet meeting few while ago and decided to resign," Kejriwal told his supporters on Friday while addressing at the AAP headquarters here after his cabinet's last meeting was held in the secretariat.
Attacking the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Kejriwal said: "The BJP and the Congress together defeated the Jan Lok Pal Bill. Both the parties meet every day behind a curtain and their real faces were revealed today."
The AAP supremo alleged that Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) chairman Mukesh Ambani is supporting the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government fort the past 10 years and even he backs BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
"Three days ago we lodged FIR against Mukesh Ambani. Ambani is running the UPA government for the last 10 years. He is also backing Modi for the past one year. How else Modi gets so much of money?" Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal on Tuesday said he has ordered to register FIR against Petroleum Minister M Veerappa Moily, former petroleum minister Murli Deora and RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani for conspiring to inflate the prices of gas in the capital.
The FIR has been reportedly registered under sections dealing with criminal conspiracy, cheating and other sections of the Prevention Of Corruption Act.
