“I want to challenge Manoj Tiwari and BJP, if an accused of Rs 2,000 cr scam is roaming free in Delhi, nothing can be more shameful for you. If Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia have committed scam, arrest them. Either arrest me by the evening or apologise to the public,” Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.

Earlier in the day, Manoj Tiwari claimed that Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia were involved in a scam which they were going to expose.
According to Tiwari, the duo shelled out Rs 2000 crore for the construction of rooms in schools that could have been built for only Rs 892 crore. He said that 34 contractors were given the task including the relatives of Kejriwal and Sisodia.
“Delhi government is spending Rs 24.86 lakh to construct one room of 300 sq ft,” said Tiwari at a press conference.
“You can not see such kind of misuse of taxpayers money anywhere. You can buy a flat at Rs 1500 per sq ft but the government is spending Rs 8800 per sq ft,” he added. He said that he had received all the details from the RTI and he won’t let the corrupt people loot Delhi.
