Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday accused an unnamed official in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) of asking for sex in return for selection of cricketers.

“A senior journalist came to me and said his wife was asked to come for sex in return for selection of his son in the cricket team,” Kejriwal told NDTV.

He did not name the journalist or offer any evidence, but told the TV channel that the journalist was ready to testify at an inquiry.

Kejriwal said that “apart from the financial irregularities at the DDCA, there were other major wrong things happening including the sex racket”.

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should decide “whether to make DDCA inquiry null and void to protect (finance minister) Arun Jaitley”.

The chief minister has been raising allegations of corruption against Jaitley ever since Delhi principal secretary Rajendra Kumar was raided by the CBI in a graft case on December 15.

Kejriwal and other leaders of his Aam Aadmi Party have accused Jaitley of indulging in financial irregularities while he was at the helm of the DDCA. Jaitley has rejected all allegations of wrongdoing and filed a criminal defamation suit against Kejriwal and five others.

Not scared of CBI, order any inquiry

Kejriwal also said his government did not do anything wrong in the Delhi and District Cricket Association scam and the CBI is free to conduct an inquiry against him.

“Kejriwal is not scared of CBI, order any inquiry against me,” the chief minister told NDTV.

Kejriwal alleged the central government was conducting Central Bureau of Investigation raids at his office while turning a “blind eye” to the Vyapam scam of Madhya Pradesh.

Over the matter of alleged irregularities in the DDCA, he said: “Whenever anyone takes the name of DDCA and corruption, (Finance Miniser) Arun Jaitley says he is being defamed.”

“When we (Kejriwal along with Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia) met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, I told him I am like your child, please guide us, let us work without obstructions. He was silent,” he added.
