Kejriwal suggests Gopal Subramanium to head DDCA investigation committee
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal last day invited Former Solicitor General and renowned advocate Gopal Subramanium to head the DDCA investigation committee. The DDCA scam had recently tainted the BJP elite leader and Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s political image as several political leaders alleged his involvement in the scam. Expecting a disagreement from the Union Government, Subramanium had earlier rejected the offer and suggested the Delhi Government to seek the Union’s permission. Being a union territory, Delhi government has several restrictions in governing the state; these constraints have created a tug-of-war situation in the State particularly between BJP and AAP. Notably, the new development in the DDCA investigation is giving an upper-hand to the AAP-ruling state government. Media reported that a formal acceptance letter from the renowned advocate had reached in the CM’s office last day. Strengthening to the speculations, the Delhi Governor recently informed the state that the committee’s appoint cannot be done without Union Government’s approval. He reminded the government that Delhi is still a Union Territory. Meanwhile, the opposition had opposed the appointment and alleged that Subramanium had earlier helped the AAP government in several cases. And, it seems that the opposition is not convinced about the credibility of the committee. Ridiculing the arguments, Subramanium had suggested a televised proceeding to ensure the transparency in the probe. The scam was initially bought to the spotlight by the AAP leaders, and they strongly alleged the involvement of Jaitly. Followed by that, BJP MP Kirti Azad and BJP MP Ram Jethmalani had accused the involvement of the Union FM in the case. However, the allegation stirred the BJP elite and they suspended Kirti Azad immediately after the Parliament session.
