Himanta Biswa Sarma On AAP Allegations: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has accused Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma of corruption during the Corona period. AAP has accused Sarma of corruption in the PPE Kit deal. Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Saturday that Assam CM Hemant Biswa Sarma has given contracts for government procurement of PPE kits to the companies of his wife’s company and son’s partner. He alleged that documents have come out in a report that when Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma was the health minister there in 2020, then under the guise of Corona, he committed corruption.
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has denied all the allegations. Sarma tweeted that when the whole country was battling Corona, there was a huge shortage of PPE kits in Assam. At that time my wife had helped the government and donated 1500 PPE kits. My wife did not earn a single rupee for this. Hemant Biswa Sarma has also spoken of filing a defamation case against Sisodia in Guwahati.
Manish Sisodia made these allegations
Manish Sisodia alleges that JCB Industries, the company of Sarma’s wife, was given contracts to supply PPE kits during the Corona period, while that company had nothing to do with the medical field. Then the government used to buy PPE kits from other companies for Rs 600. But his wife was given a contract to purchase Rs 990 per kit.
Name of Sarma’s son and wife also taken
Manish Sisodia said that Hemant Biswa Sarma also gave contract to the companies of his son’s partner GRD Pharmaceutical and Maritime Healthcare. They were also given the contract at the rate of Rs 990 per kit instead of 600. The company of the wife did not supply the whole, the companies of the partner of the son also did not supply. But despite that, the contract was given to the partner companies again and that too this time at the rate of Rs 1680 per kit. Another company is in this, Agile Associates, which is the company of his wife’s partner, was given contracts at the rate of Rs 2200 per kit.
Question asked by BJP
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia accused the BJP of hiding the corruption of its leaders and asked why the BJP is silent on this openly corruption of its Chief Minister. BJP should tell whether this is corruption or not, if it is then why not arresting them. To build a Mohalla clinic or to build a school is not corruption, but it is corruption.
