CM Kejriwal orders FIR against Mukesh Ambani, oil minister Veerappa Moil alleging KG-D6 gasgate
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has ordered his government's anti-corruption branch to register FIRs against Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL) Chiarman Mukesh Ambani, present oil minister Veerappa Moily, former oil minister Murli Deora and ex-DG Hydrocarbon VK Sibal while alleging that they inflated price of gas produced from KG D6 Basin and created a fake shortage of the same in the country.
Arvind Kejriwal in a press conference said that the FIR would be lodged on the basis of a complaint he had received from four eminent persons namely TSR Subhramanyam (former cabinet secretary), EAS Sharma, Admiral Tahilani and advocate Kamini Jaiswal. 

Kejriwal said that from April 1, the gas prices could go up to $8USD per unit as against the present cost of $4USD. Originally the RIL has a 17 year contract of selling gas at $2USD per unit for the 17 years. Kejriwal while citing the complain he had received said that the RIL in collusion with some ministers and bureaucrats managed to hike the gas prices.

Kejriwal while explaining the problems that will arise with the increase in gas rates from April 1 said, “If gas prices increase then CNG prices will increase, electricity rates will increase, rate of fertilizes will increase, on a whole the total economy of India will get effected by that.”

Kejriwal said that, he would write a letter to the Prime Minister, and will request him to suspend the order to hike gas rates. He will also request the PM to give a free hand to carry on the investigations in this issue. Kejriwal will suggest the PM to give the gas wells to state owned entities like ONGC.

Meanwhile the union oil minister Veerappa Moily while rejecting all the accusations said,"I should sympathize with him,he should know how govt functions,there is certain system to fix prices."
