Gujarat gas deal scam bigger than 2G, both BJP and Congress involved: Arvind Kejriwal

Arvind Kejriwal1 150x150 Gujarat gas deal scam bigger than 2G, both BJP and Congress involved: Arvind KejriwalThe social activist-turned-politician and Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday took on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi over the Tehelka report saying that it has irregularities in the sale of the stock which almost costs Rs 20,000 crore in Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation’s (GSPC) gas exploration project in the Krishna Godavari Basin (KG), sold to a foreign company at very less price.

Addressing a press conference, Arvind Kejriwal said, “There was no bidding. Modi said that GeoGlobal has been engaged for technical assistance. But GeoGlobal and Jubilant Empro Private Limited were given two wells in the KG Basin for free.”

He added, “Jean Paul Roy is the owner of GeoGlobal. We demand an investigation on him. This scam is bigger than the 2G scam.”

Further, Kejriwal said that the Gujarat Government lead by Narendra Modi had violated the rules to sell stake in the KG Basin to two firms.

Kejriwal said that both BJP and Congress parties are involved in this scam.

He said, “Not only Narendra Modi, but the UPA too allotted 10 per cent gas wells to GeoGlobal. Bikaner gas wells were also given to GeoGlobal. Modi had written to Central government in 2010 asking for the cancellation of contract with GeoGlobal. The letter is lying with the Centre for the last two years.”

“Why didn’t the Congress raise the issue for the last nine years?” Arvind Kejriwal asked.

Kejriwal also highlighted Narendra Modi’s ties with the Adani Group. He said, “The Modi government gave 14,306 acres of land to Adani at the rate of Rs 1 per square metre, where as market rate was Rs 300 per square metre. But when the IAF asked Gujarat for land, they were told that they would have to pay Rs 88 per square metre. The PM had to intervene to ensure allotment of land to IAF”

He said, “Gujarat government bought electricity from Adani at the rate of Rs 5.50 from the Adani Group in 2007 even though the Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation (GMDC) had offered to provide electricity at Rs 2.25 in short term merchandise. This offer was ignored.”
