New Delhi: Former Delhi ministers Arvinder Singh Lovely and Haroon Yusuf on Saturday said that the Aam Aadmi Party government is trying to divert the corruption charge in the CCTV issue without clarifying the allegations made by Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ajay Maken that  there was corruption and compromise of national security in awarding the contract for installation of CCTV cameras in Delhi to Chinese government PSU Hikvision through Indian PSU BEL (Bharat Electronics Ltd).

Mr  Maken had alleged that the contract for the installation of  cameras had been hiked from the initial Rs 130 crore to Rs 571.40 crore by relaxing tender conditions. after the Chinese government PSU Hikvision was brought on board by the BEL in its vendors’ list.

Mr Yusuf said the Congress will hold a candlelight march on Sunday evening to protest against the AAP government’s decision to compromise national security by awarding the contract for the installation of to a Chinese government PSU.

Addressing a press conference at the DPCC office at Rajiv Bhawan, Mr  Lovely said that it was expected that Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, at his  press conference earlier in the day, would clear the corruption charge in the CCTV issue and how the AAP government was trying to do a clean job.

But sadly, Mr Lovely noted,  Mr Sisoda was giving the impression that the AAP government was ready to install the cameras yesterday, and wanted to hand over the work to the RWAs but that work was being stalled by the

Opposition parties and the Lt. Governor.
