Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Somnath Bharti on Tuesday alleged the people have rejected Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘model of Hitler governance’ and said that the CBI raid on the Delhi Secretariat reflected the deeply perturbed mindset of the latter post the humiliating defeat in Bihar.
“It basically proves that deeply perturbed by the massive defeat in Delhi followed by massive defeat in Bihar, Mr. Modi is forcing his own as well as his party’s political death. He is not seeing any future of his own as well as of his party. In that perspective, he has lost mental balance,” Bharti told ANI.
“The entire democratic fabric of state-Centre relationship stands disturbed. He has caused damages in Arunachal Pradesh, in Bihar, in Delhi time and again. He is not understanding that people have rejected his model of Hitler governance,” he added while expressing his surprise over the CBI raid.
The government, however, justified the CBI raid on the Delhi Secretariat with Minister of State for Environment and Forests Prakash Javadekar alleging that the hypocrisy of AAP stands exposed.
Javadekar dubbed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s reaction on the CBI raid as ‘atrocious’.
“The CBI (conducts) raids only when they receive a credible complaint and they want to investigate the corruption. Does Arvind Kejriwal want to protect corruption?” asked Javadekar.
“Instead of immediately taking action against his own officials, who are found for corruption, he is accusing the Prime Minister. This is worst kind of politics,” he added.
Javadekar alleged this is the worst scenario Delhi has ever witnessed as a sitting Chief Minister is protecting corruption.
Kejriwal earlier claimed that the CBI raided his office at the behest of Prime Minister Modi. He also went as far as to call the Prime Minister a ‘coward and a psychopath’.
“CBI lying. My own office raided. Files of CM office are being looked into. Let Modi say which file he wants?” Kejriwal tweeted.
“I am the only CM who dismissed, on my own, a minister n a senior officer on charges of corruption and handed their cases to CBI. If CBI had any evidence against Rajender, why didn’t they share it wid me? I wud hv acted against him,” he said in another tweet.
The CBI has registered a case against Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajender Kumar for allegedly favouring a firm in getting contracts from Delhi government.
“FM lied in Parliament. My own office files are being looked into to get some evidence against me. Rajender is an excuse,” tweeted Kejriwal.
Refuting Kejriwal’s allegation on the raid on Chief Minister’s office, the CBI has said that the raid was conducted on the Principal Secretary’s office following a warrant.
