Launching a counter offensive against prime minister Narendra Modi over his name being included in the FIR in the alleged Rs 400-crore tanker scam, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said that will continue his fight against corruption.
 
Kejriwal, who was addressing a press conference on Tuesday, said he is not scared of any FIR or the anti-corruption bureau. He said the prime minister never initiated any action against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son-in-law Robert Vadra. He said the FIR shows that the PM Modi has a direct fight with him.
 
The Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) of the Delhi government registered an FIR against Kejriwal and former chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday in the alleged Rs 400 crore tanker scam. ACB chief Mukesh Meena said both the CM and his predecessor may be called for questioning.
