“In a CD received yesterday, Sandeep Kumar was caught doing a wrong thing and we immediately removed him from the Cabinet,” said Kejriwal.

He also said that party will hold the meeting over Sandeep Kumar’s objectionable CD to take the strict action against him.

“Party will soon take action against Sandeep Kumar (who is removed from Cabinet), will hold a meeting,” said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Kejriwal launched a scathing attack on BJP chief ministers facing heat over Vyapam, mining and PDS scams.              

Citing his examples over sacking of his ministers right after indulging in a controversy, he attacked the BJP for not sacking Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Raman Singh, Vasundhara Raje and Anandiben Patel even after embroiling into controversies.

In a sudden move, Kumar was sacked by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday night after receiving an 'objectionable' CD in which he was purportedly shown in a compromising position with a woman.

The decision to remove the 36-year-old minister was taken at a high-level meeting attended by top AAP leaders and the announcement was made by Kejriwal himself through a tweet.
