After Amar Singh, SP will withdraw cases against Khurshid: Kejriwal

New Delhi: India Against Corruption activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday slammed the Samajwadi Party (SP) after the Uttar Pradesh government on Friday withdrew money laundering cases against former SP member Amar Singh. Questioning the criminal justice system, Kejriwal said the SP would next withdraw cases against External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid, whose NGO has been accused by the IAC of financial irregularities and misuse of funds.

Taking on SP leader Mulayam Singh Yadav, Kejriwal tweeted, "Next, Mulayam Singh will withdraw cases against Salman Khurshid. Wait n watch. And in return, Congress wud withdraw cases against Mulayam."

On Friday, in a major development, the Uttar Pradesh government withdrew all cases of money laundering against Amar Singh. The move indicated a thaw in relations between Singh and the party. Sources, however, said that Mulayam's own family, including his son and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, was opposed to it.
