Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday slammed Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and PM Narendra Modi for creating obstacles in their work. Kejriwal accused the Central Bureau of Investigation of working at the behest of Prime Minister’s Office. Leveling sensational charges on the CBI, Kejriwal said that the Central security agency summons their government officials and abuse them in their office.
“The CBI directly reports to Amit Shah and Narendra Modi, I want to demand a report of all old cases they have filed so far,” he said.
The Delhi chief minister said that CBI has so far carried out multiple raids on him, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, and Health Minister Satyendra Jain. “However, they couldn’t find anything and have come to the conclusion that these boys are honest,” Kejriwal said. Kejriwal further said that CBI raids are being made “with three different intentions” – to malign the image of the party leaders, to frame party leaders in various charges, and to intimidate the officials.
Slamming Narendra Modi, Kejriwal said that the prime minister is like the ‘father to the nation’ and should take up positive politics in the country. “Do positive politics, the prime minister is like a father to the entire country, even the Opposition parties are like its kids, he should refrain from doing negative politics,” he said.
The Delhi chief minister said that CBI and the Anti-Corruption Branch have registered 14 cases against AAP ministers and their relatives since February 2015, yet there hasn’t been an arrest in even one case. Kejriwal further listed AAP government’s achievements and said people had started asking BJP-led governments in other states why they were not improving the condition of schools and hospitals.
The chief minister further alleged that Delhi government officials, who have been boycotting meetings with AAP ministers for four months after the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, are being “threatened” into continuing their strike. “The strike is being orchestrated by the PMO and coordinated by the L-G (Anil Baijal),” Kejriwal said.
