Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday (October 17) targeted BJP President Nitin Gadkari, accusing him of receiving personal favours by getting around 100 acres of agriculture land in Maharashtra after the Congress-NCP government there bent rules. Utilising a much-hyped press conference here to "expose" Gadkari, the activist-turned-politician alleged that all parties were involved in a cosy relationship of "looting" the country even though they raise issues against each other just for the sake of it. Specifically, Kejriwal alleged a quid pro quo between BJP and Congress-NCP government of Maharashtra, saying Gadkari and his party maintained "silence" over various issues of corruption like the irrigation scam surrounding the Maharashtra government. In a debate moderated by TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, panelists -- Madhu Goud Yaskhi, MP, Lok Sabha, Congress; Ravi Shankar Prasad, Deputy Leader of Opposition, Rajya Sabha and Chief Natl Spokesperson, BJP; Shazia Ilmi, Erstwhile Core Committee Member, Team Anna; Swapan Das Gupta, Senior Journalist and Pinky Anand, Natl Executive Member, BJP & Advocate, Supreme Court, debates the issue.
