Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today alleged that the Centre was “hatching a conspiracy” to arrest Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain and him by “misusing” the probe agencies, a day after Kejriwal’s former principal secretary Rajendra Kumar accused the CBI of “putting pressure” on him to “implicate” the chief minister.
He also alleged that the BJP-led central government was “hell-bent on destroying” the elected Delhi government and added that the people of the five poll-bound states Punjab, Goa, Manipur, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand will “teach the saffron party a lesson”.

“Do not compete with us with conspiracies, instead of policies. You (Centre) and us should go for a constructive competition and let’s see, who wins,” he told a press conference at his residence.
In a letter to the Delhi Chief Secretary yesterday, Kumar sought voluntary retirement from service and accused the CBI of “putting pressure” on him to implicate Kejriwal and beating up dozens of people during its probe into a graft case, charges rejected by the probe agency.
