Arvind Kejriwal has said that India’s Law Minister, Salman Khurshid and his wife Louise Khurshid have been running a scam in the NGO where Louise is the Chief Functioning Officer. Moreover, the NGO (Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust) is registered at Khurshid’s residence in Delhi – 4, Gulmohar Avenue, Jamia Nagar, New Delhi.
A report sent to UP’s Special State Secretary clearly shows that the signatures and Government stamps on the documents were forged. Forgery was used to show that work – for which the NGO received money – was done, when in fact it hadn’t been done! Worse, these projects and the NGO was taking money for PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED people’s development work. So, basically Salman Khurshid and his wife have been stealing from handicapped people!
Here are the forgeries and the discrepancies that the report pointed out (courtesy: India Today)
