97-Raghav_5NEW DELHI : Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Raghav Chadha’s letter to Home Minister Rajnath Singh enclosed a draft worth a grand total of Rs. 2.50 – the amount he said he had drawn as salary as one of the nine advisers in the Arvind Kejriwal government. All nine advisers were sacked yesterday after the home ministry said these posts were not sanctioned.
“I was offered an honorarium of Re 1 per month and over my time there earned a princely sum of Rs. 2.50,” Raghav Chadha said in a letter to Rajnath Singh.”While we cannot change what is in the past, please accept enclosed a Demand Draft of Rs.2.50 in favour of “Ministry of Home Affairs” that I earned in my capacity as adviser as a token of my remorse.”
My letter to Hon’ble Minister of Home Affairs regarding retrospective sacking of 9 advisors, including me. Enclosed demand draft in favour of Ministry of Home Affairs as refund of remuneration of Rs.2.50/- received during my tenure. Raghav Chadha also took potshots at the ruling BJP at the centre for the appointment of Sambit Patra and Shazia Ilmi as directors at public sector companies and for giving the rank of minister to religious leaders in Madhya Pradesh.DbDaYL2WsAAMvsS (1)
Raghav Chadha, a chartered accountant, was appointed as an adviser to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia from January 16 to March 31, 2016, to prep for the Delhi budget.The home ministry said the posts of consultants and advisers had been done “by an agency not competent under the law to do so”.This is the latest flashpoint between the centre and the Arvind Kejriwal government after the Delhi High court recently set aside the Election Commission’s order disqualifying 20 AAP lawmakers for holding offices of profit as parliamentary secretaries.ndtv.
