Kejriwal again targets Jaitley on CBI raids

Documents seized had

GN Bureau | December 16, 2015



Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal continues to attack finance minister Arun Jaitley. After alleging that the CBI had raided his office for a file linked to corruption in the Delhi cricket body that Jaitley headed in the past, tweeted today that the investigators read the file but "left it" after his media briefing.

Kejriwal also tweeted that documents seized from his office had "no relation" to allegations against his principal secretary Rajender Gupta, which, the CBI had said, was the reason for the raids at the Delhi Secretariat on Tuesday.

Delhi chief minister had said yesterday that the CBI raided his office to search for files on the DDCA or Delhi and District Cricket Association, which, he said, had Jaitley's name. AAP alleges that there were financial irregularities when Jaitley was the president of the Delhi cricket body for 13 years till December, 2013.


Jaitley called the allegations "absolutely rubbish" and  said: " I don't think I should comment on rubbish."

AAP leader Saurabh Bhardwaj said today: "There are rumours about widespread corruption in DDCA. Jaitley was heading it for a long time. There were documents in the chief minister's office on this, as Mr Kejriwal takes care of all important documents, inquiries and vigilance documents."

Meanwhile, BJP leader and former member of AAP Kiran Bedi said, "I think Kejriwal has missed an opportunity. Since principal secretary is a very trusted position and Kejriwal is always against corruption he should have supported the CBI". She also said that Kejriwal should have cooperated and should have first asked for proof and evidence from the CBI before calling it political vendetta.

"An apology is not enough. He should be punished. A simple constable would have been dismissed for such a language," said Kiran Bedi during a television programme.
