Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday took shots at the Prime Minister again when he said that the Narendra Modi government was in Paytm’s pockets. Kejriwal was speaking about reports where it was stated that the Central Bureau of Investigation had lodged FIRs against the 48 customers PayTM had accused of cheating the company of over Rs 6.15 lakh. Kejriwal was retweeting journalist Rohini Singh, who had asked as to why CBI was taking the case when Paytm was not a government firm. Kejriwal said that when Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself was in the advertisements for Paytm. Kejriwal further said that the CBI would not dare to not take orders from Paytm.
Earlier today, Kejriwal had targetted Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi over the latter’s claims of having personal information about Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Kejriwal retweeted senior journalist Barkha Dutt and said that Rahul Gandhi did not have the guts to expose anything against the Prime Minister. Kejriwal added that if the Congress Vice President exposes anything, Narendra Modi would have Robert Vadra arrested. The original tweet on this matter was made by Barkha Dutt who had asked if it made sense to anyone that Rahul Gandhi had proof of the Prime Minister’s corruption but revealed nothing and went to meet the PM on the same day as the grand opposition was marching to the President.
Kejriwal had asked Gandhi if he wasn’t being allowed to speak in the parliament, why he doesn’t then speak outside it. Kejriwal had also said that the Congress and BJP were friends who claimed to have sensitive information about each other’s involvement in corruption but were not disclosing it. Kejriwal had further questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s educational qualifications and asked if the Pm was educated enough to understand the economy, especially when the nation was reeling under the pressure of demonetisation.
