New Delhi, Feb 15 IBNS | 5 months ago

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav has called Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) chairman Mukesh Ambani the "super government" of India.


"We will of course take the larger national picture to the people. We'll take forward this agenda of the so called 'super sarkaar' of Mukesh Ambani," Yadav told CNN-IBN.

"The Reliance gas scam is one of the biggest scams in the history of this country. Why is the BJP silent on it? Why is Modi silent on it when he speaks on every issue," asked Yadav.

"When it came to fighting Mukesh Ambani, both the Congress and BJP were united," Yadav said.

Hours after the AAP government-backed Jan Lokpal Bill was not tabled in the Delhi Assembly, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal resigned 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 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 First Information Report (FIR) against Petroleum Minister M Veerappa Moily, former petroleum minister Murli Deora and 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.
