New Delhi: BJP legislator Manjinder Singh Sirsa today asked for the resignation of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal regarding his supposed involvement of his extended family members in the PWD scandal.

“It was most unfortunate that the man involved passed away two days ago, but as the scam has surfaced, it is for Kejriwal to take a call on moral ground, as payment of crores of rupees was made (in the PWD scam),” Sirsa said in a statement.
