Coal Scam: Kejriwal refuses to seek bail
Posted on Tue , 5 Feb '13
Aam Aadmi Party National Convener Arvind Kejriwal, who today appeared before a court for breaching prohibitory orders while protesting outside the residences of Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi in August last year, today said that he will not seek bail and would prefer going to jail. Kejriwal and his accomplices had staged a protest outside the Prime Minister's residence, Congress President residence and former BJP President Nitin Gadkari's residence in August last year over a CAG report that said the national exchequer lost around Rs. 1.86 lakh crore due to coal allocations without competitive bidding during 2005-09.
