There will be no resignation, no JPC will be formed, says Naqvi on DDCA row

imagesNEW DELHI: Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is likely to find himself at the centre of a raging controversy with Congress and AAP targeting him and demanding his resignation over alleged “gross financial irregularities” in Delhi’s cricket body DDCA when he headed it from 1999 to 2013.
Taking animosity to next level, main Opposition Congress has demanded constitution of a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) to look into irregularities in Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) and resignation of Jaitley, who happens to be a former president of the cricket body. Jaitley, however, dismissed the allegations, saying they are without any basis.
Meanwhile, the Congress Party is holding a strategy meet to discuss issues like the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill, the National Herald case, law and order situation in Punjab, the CBI raid at the Delhi Secretariat and many other issues.
The Winter Session of the Parliament has been witnessing repeated disruptions over several issues raised by the Opposition parties.
