Vinit Wahi / NEW DELHI
Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ajay Maken Friday said that the Aam Aadmi Party Government in Delhi has compromised the security of the nation for kickbacks in the installation of CCTV cameras in Delhi by awarding the contract to Chinese Government PSU Hikvision, having 58 per cent share of the Chinese Government, through BEL (Bharat Electronics Ltd) by making it a vendor of BEL.
He alleged that it was an “open and shut case of corruption and compromise of the national security”, and demanded the resignation of AAP Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He said if Kejriwal does not resign, Delhi Congress will hold a demonstration outside the official residence of Kejriwal at Civil Lines on Sunday.
Maken said the Congress party will also approach the CBI, CVC (Central Vigilance Commission) and if need be, the court of law, for a thorough enquiry into the CCTV camera installation scam and to bring the guilty to book. He also demanded an enquiry against the Defence Ministry that how the Indian PSU BEL, which comes under the Defence Ministry, included Chinese Government company Hikvision as its Vendor Company. Shri Maken said whenever there is a tussle between the Delhi and Central Government, the Lt. Governor of Delhi bails out the AAP Government though on the surface, it is made out a clash between the AAP Government and the LG.
The DPCC chief said Congress President Rahul Gandhi had said yesterday that the Chinese troops participate in the parade of the Pakistan army. He said in such a time, it will be a huge national security risk if the contract for the installation of the CCTV cameras in Delhi is given to Chinese PSU Hikvision.
