Shiva Kant Tripathi who has accused Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh said he has piles of clinching evidences to nail the Rajya Sabha member.
Speaking to HT at 3 am at his Shyam Nagar home, an all alone Tripathi said he traversed length and breadth of country for four months to collect the evidences.
“These are documents filed by Amar Singh himself with registrar of companies and courts; they are self explanatory how he misused his position and swindled Rs 500 crores of public money,” he said. Wearing green Arrow shirt and stark red lungi, Tripathi has given police 1500 annexure in support of FIR he filed on Thursday against Singh.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and chairman of Flex Industries Ashok Chaturvedi figure in the FIR as the stakeholders of Singh’s companies. “He’s a public servant and he needs to tell the nation how number of his companies swell to 168 from just eight in four years,” he asked.
Tripathi who is unknown entity in city circles alleges Singh as chairman of UP Development Council passed on major contracts to his companies. And he created a web of shell companies, which he merged with his six companies for money laundering.
“I have proofs that most of these companies don’t exist yet their shares were subscribed at 1500% more premium,” he said. Tripathi who refuses to disclose anything about himself said “I am an Indian and such politicians should be exposed.”
