The confrontation between Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Centre today intensified with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal making fresh allegations that CBI has been asked to 'target' the opposition and 'finish those who don't fall in line'.

The confrontation between Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Centre today intensified with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal making fresh allegations that CBI has been asked to ‘target’ the opposition and ‘finish those who don’t fall in line’.

Arvind Kejriwal’s latest salvo came a day after he demanded that Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley be removed from the Cabinet for alleged corruption in Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) which he had headed for 14 years till 2013.

Arun Jaitley had rejected the allegations calling it was a propaganda technique of Arvind Kejriwal to deflect attention when he himself was in the “dock”.

Arvind Kejriwal today tweeted, “A CBI officer told me yesterday that CBI has been asked to target all opposition parties and finish those who don’t fall in line.”

The AAP chief once again chose the social media route to level the charges. He had virtually live-tweeted the CBI raid at his Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar’s office in the Delhi Secretariat on Tuesday.

Arvind Kejriwal had said Arun Jaitley’s assertion that AAP’s allegations against him are “unsubstantiated and non-specific” could not be treated as “gospel truth” as the charges against him were “very, very serious”.
