Kejriwal calls Modi a psychopath, claims CBI raiding his office

Tuesday morning saw a political drama of Himalayan magnitude. With winter forcing the people to get the solace in the warmth of woolen clothes and heated rooms, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saw his office being raided by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sleuths.

The infuriated chief minister said that this was not a raid against his secretary as the CBI was claiming but against him as he claimed central government wanted to harass him.

Later the wily chief minister of Delhi called Prime Minister Narendra Modi as “a coward and a psychopath”.kejriwal varanasi

But the CBI said that the raid was not on Kejriwal’s office but that of his secretary. A senior union minister said that Modi had “nothing to do” with the raid.

Immediately after the news of the raid reached the chief minister he took to the micro blogging site Twitter and wrote, “CBI raids my office…When Modi cudn’t handle me politically, he resorts to this cowardice.”

In the meantime a CBI officer said that a case has been registered against Kerjiwal’s secretary Rajendra Kumar for alleged abuse of office to favour a particular firm in the last few years in getting tenders from Delhi government departments. The CBI officer went on to add, “After taking warrants, searches are being conducted in the office and residence of Rajendra Kumar. The allegations against Kumar were raised by member secretary Delhi Dialogue Commission Ashish Kumar Joshi”.

The chief minister refuted the claims of the investigating agency and slammed the CBI and the central government. He held the central government responsible for the raids.

“CBI lying. My own office raided. Files of CM office are being looked into. Let Modi say which file he wants?”, countered the chief minister with his own punchline. The chief minister claimed that his secretary Rajendra Kumar was just an excuse, and added that files at his office were being examined. In a string of tweets, Kejriwal said: “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.” Kejriwal was referring to the October 9 public sacking of Food Minister Asim Ahmed Khan for allegedly demanding bribes from a builder.
