Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in a sarcastic jibe against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, warned deputy CM Manish Sisodia to ‘be prepared’ against CBI actions after the latter inaugurated a new college building in the city and congratulated the Public Works department engineers. Kejriwal continuing the swipe wrote on Twitter, that the Prime Minister might ‘declare’ that Sisodia did not have any power to construct the building.
Sisodia, who is also the education minister of the state, inaugurated the newly constructed building of Deen Dayal Upadhyay college in Delhi and later congratulated the team of engineers at PWD and in a tweet in Hindi wrote, “Congratulations for the new building to the PWD engineers, but suggest you to keep the files ready as tota-maina (parrots and mynas) might come in 2-3 days.” Retweeting the post Kejriwal wrote, “Manish, be prepared. Modi ji will either send CBI against you or declare that u did not have power to construct it (the college building).” PWD Minister Satyendar Jain was also present at the inauguration.
