New Delhi :
The Delhi BJP today charged Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal with taking preemptive measures to save “corrupt” ministers and officials of his government from the police and other central anti-corruption agencies.
“Your tweets regarding raids against Delhi government ministers Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain by central government did not surprise me. I believe it was done to pre-empt any raids by police and anti-corruption agencies of central government against corrupt ministers and officials of the government,” BJP MLA Vijender Gupta wrote in a letter to Kejriwal.
The Leader of Opposition in Assembly further alleged that there were charges of corruption against Delhi government and two ministers were removed in this connection. Gupta added that the tweet by Kejriwal was an effort to save them from possible police action including arrest.
The BJP MLA has also complained in his letter that several efforts to meet the Chief Minister and discuss the “scams” in the government have failed because his request for an appointment was not entertained.
In the midst of his face-off with the BJP-led Centre, Kejriwal had yesterday claimed that raids may be conducted targeting his ministerial colleagues Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain.
“PMO sources-Next raid on Manish or Satinder. Officers under them being pressurized to get something wrong signed from them,” Kejriwal had tweeted.
“Modiji you do whatever you want, truth is with us, God is with us, you cannot do anything to us,” Kejriwal said in another tweet.
