DDCA Official Sought Sexual Favour, Implies Arvind Kejirwal

New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal today alleged that an official in Delhi's cricket body DDCA, which is in the middle of a fierce political row between his government and the Centre, had asked a woman to "come at night" if she wanted her son to be selected for a Delhi team.

In an exclusive interview to NDTV, the Delhi Chief Minister alleged "major wrongdoing" in the selection of players by the DDCA or Delhi and District Cricket Administration.

Mr Kejriwal revealed that a senior journalist's wife was asked by an official to visit him at night at his home about a month ago, but the Chief Minister did not take names or offer any evidence.  

"His (the senior journalist's) son plays cricket. He told me that his son was selected, he got a call that his son was selected. In the evening when the list came, his name was not there. Can you believe that the next day, the journalist's wife got an SMS that you come to my (official's) place at night, your son's selection will be done," Mr Kejriwal said.

The journalist, he claimed, was "willing to depose"  before an investigations committee.

"There are many instances like this of irregularities in the selection process," Mr Kejriwal alleged.

The Chief Minister and his Aam Aadmi Party allege that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who was the chief of the Delhi cricket body for 13 years till 2013, presided over massive corruption that included fake deals, conflict of interest, fudged accounts and forgery.

Mr Jaitley has sued Mr Kejriwal and other AAP leaders for defamation.
