Jyoteetha Mehti, a prominent lawyer who has made a name for himself in the political arena, is looking to bring a defamation case against the BJP government.
She wants a CBI probe into the allegation of illegal assembly and has filed a petition with the Delhi High Court seeking the probe against the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, BJP leader Yogi Adityanath and his party.
“I have a complaint against Arvind, Yogi and their party that I am being threatened by the BJP.
I am also going to file a case against Kejriwal,” said Mehtis counsel R K Singh.
She said she was also seeking CBI probe against former Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who was the chief minister when the assembly elections were held in 2013.
Singh said that he had filed the petition on December 20, 2016 and he has sought the probe into alleged irregularities in the 2014 assembly polls in Delhi and elsewhere.
“It is my opinion that the CBI should be made aware of the fact that the Chief Secretary (Kejriwal) and his cabinet colleagues were involved in illegal assembly in 2014.
It is also my opinion if they are involved in other crimes and they are also part of the conspiracy, they should also be investigated.
The people who are the culprits should be arrested,” said Singh.”
If the government has committed illegal assembly, they will be made to face the consequences.
If they have not committed illegal house-building and illegal construction, they have to face justice.
If the CM and his team were involved, they would be arrested too,” he said.
Sisodias son-in-law Manish and others were the chief ministers when the 2014 elections were conducted.
“The government has already violated the Constitution and the law.
It has been shown that there were irregularities in 2014 and the people who were involved should be investigated,” he alleged.
The BJP is yet to comment on the matter.
