AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal says he never heard his colleague Joe Srinivas’ name before.
AAP leader and former Finance Minister Arvind Kumar Shinde tweeted on Saturday that he has not heard of Joe Sralivas, who was allegedly involved in a racist trade, and he will “look into the matter”.
“I have never heard the name of Joe,” Mr Kejriwal tweeted, “nor will I look into the case.
My focus is on getting India’s economy back on track.
We are on track and on course,” he added.
Mr Srinas name has also been mentioned by former Union Minister Kapil Sibal.
The Trade Minister said he has no knowledge of the alleged trade.
The AAP leader tweeted on Friday that “the trade that took place on November 6 was not just one of many in the past few days.”
“The trader joebes name has been mentioned and I will look into it,” Mr Kumar Shinte tweeted.
Mr Kejriwal’s tweets came days after a BJP leader said that Mr Srinivs name was “rare in politics”.
Mr Srikrishna also accused the BJP of “playing politics with the economy”, and asked his followers to be vigilant.
“This trade took place just days after the BJP came to power in Delhi.
The BJP should look into this matter.
If there is a case against him, I will not look into such a case,” he tweeted.BJP spokesman Nirmala Sitharaman has said the BJP will “seek justice” from Mr Srikumar for his alleged actions.”
There is a huge issue of racism in the country.
We have asked the police to look into these cases and find out who was involved in the trade,” she said on Sunday.
