Objectionable CD: Arvind Kejriwal sacks minister Sandeep Kumar
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today announced the sacking of cabinet minister for women and child development Sandeep Kumar, hours after receiving a CD that contained "objectionable" videos and photographs of the minister.
With this, Kumar has become the third minister to be sacked by 18-month-old AAP government.
The decision to sack the minister was taken after an emergency meeting of the AAP officials at CM's house in Civil Lines. Kejriwal then also released a video on Twitter expalining about the whole incidence:

Sources in the AAP said the CD contained a video and photographs which showed Kumar in a "compromising position" with a woman.

Speaking to the media, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the party leadership received the video on Wednesday.

"We got an objectionable video about AAP minister Sandeep Kumar today. Within half an hour, the decision was taken to remove him as minister. AAP is a party of principles. Today, we have removed a minister. We have 66 MLAs. We will not tolerate such behaviour from anyone, be it a party official or MLA or Manish Sisodia or Arvind Kejriwal," he said.

After this incident, the opposition parties demanded the resignation of CM Kejriwal accepting moral responsibility for inducting a "morally corrupt MLA" in the cabinet.

BJP leader Vijender Gupta, said, "He (Kejriwal) must be rewarded for handing over Delhi's governance to people with corrupt values. This has never happened in any government," reported The Indian Express.
