AAP'S Ashutosh says he's not surprised about extortion-tainted Shah heading new BJP team
Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashutosh today criticized Amit Shah and his new team, saying that the BJP president himself has charges of extortion against him.
"What can I say of the team of such a person who has been charged for extortion and is undergoing a CBI investigation? All of us know about the charges on Yeddyurappa. But I feel that the charges on Yeddyurappa are nothing when compared to that of Amit Shah," said Ashutosh.
"They have members in the cabinet who are being charged in rape and other issues", he added.
Earlier, Shah announced the names of his new team, which consists of eleven vice-presidents and eight general secretaries.
The new BJP vice-presidents are Bandaru Dattatreya, B.S. Yeddyurappa, Satpal Malik, M.A. Naqvi, P. Ruppala, Prabhat Jha, Raghuvar Das, Kiran Maheswari, Renu Devi and Dinesh Sharma.
The general secretaries are J.P. Nadda, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Muralidhar Rao, Ram Madhav, Saroj Pandey, Bhupendra Yadav, R S Kateria and Ram Lal .
Anurag Thakur will continue to be Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) chief and the BJP Mahila Morcha chief will be Vijaya Rahatkar.
Abdul Rashid Ansari will be the BJP's Minority Morcha chief.
