Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday accused a Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) official of asking for sex in return for the selection of cricketers.

A senior journalist came to me and said his wife was asked to come for sex in return for selection of his son in the cricket team.

Kejriwal did not name the journalist.

Kejriwal also said that “apart from the financial irregularities, there were other major wrong things happening including the sex racket”.

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should decide “whether to make DDCA inquiry null and void to protect (Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley”.

‘I Told Modi I’m Like Your Child, Please Guide Us’

In the same interview, Kejriwal said his government did not do anything wrong in the DDCA scam and the CBI is free to conduct an inquiry against him.

Kejriwal alleged the central government was conducting CBI raids at his office while turning a “blind eye” to the Vyapam scam of Madhya Pradesh.

Over the matter of alleged irregularities in the DDCA, he said,

Whenever anyone takes the name of DDCA and corruption, (Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley says he is being defamed. When we (Kejriwal along with Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia) met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, I told him I am like your child, please guide us, let us work without obstructions. He was silent.

Jaitley was president of the DDCA between 1999-2013.
