The MLA alleged that Sanjay Singh, who is AAP’s in-charge of Uttar Pradesh affairs, used wrong and forged documents at the press conference and conspired to defame and tarnish his image.

The MLA said that he had raised a question concerning the irrigation department and it had nothing to do with the Jal Shakti department.
He said that he had raised the demand for investigation and action into the ‘scam’ in the construction of check dam by the Irrigation Department in the assembly. According to the Hazratganj Kotwali in-charge, the investigation is being done by registering a case against Sanjay Singh on the complaint of the BJP MLA.
