A Mumbai-based former activist of India Against Corruption (IAC), who staged a protest outside Arvind Kejriwal’s house in Ghaziabad, confronted the activist-turned-politician again on Tuesday.
Annie Kohli, an aide of anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare, came face to face with Kejriwal at advocate Prashant Bushan’s house in Noida’s Sector 14, where several IAC leaders were holding a meeting.
Kohli started arguing with Kejriwal. “How can some IAC volunteers call me a Congress agent and disrespect my crusade against corruption? I am an IAC agent. I am with social activist Kejriwal, not with a politician Kejriwal,” Kohli said with tears in her eyes.
Kejriwal tried to calm her down and asked her to have a discussion inside Bhushan’s home. Kohli initially refused to go inside the house, but Kejriwal managed to persuade her to join the IAC team. Kejriwal assured her that all her grievances would be addressed.
Meanwhile, Kejriwal denied the media reports that he or any IAC member had answered Congress leader Digvijay Singh’s 27 questions.
“Let Robert Vadra, Sonia Gandhi and Digvijay Singh first answer my questions. Then me and my team will think about answering Singh’s questions,” Kejriwal told Hindustan Times.
He also said that some persons may have made “a fake email ID and sent these answers on behalf of the IAC to the Congress”.
