Coalgate: PM will come out clean, says Team Anna to CBI


Manmohan Singh
New Delhi, Jun 1: Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal lashed out at CBI saying that the outcome of the investigation initiated by CBI into the coal block allocation between 2006 and 2009 that threw light on PM Singh's role was already known.

"We reject a CBI probe into the coal block allocation. The CBI will give a clean chit to the Prime Minister," said Kejriwal pointing out that the CBI was under Prime Minister Singh and how the agency planned to look into the matter.

"If the Prime Minister says that he has not done anything wrong, then why is he scared of an independent probe?" he said.

"If we are not scared of an independent investigation, then why is the PM running away from it?" said Kejriwal. He further said there was a need to probe into who decided not to auction coal blocks.

He further said that the auctions were not done in a bid to favour some mining companies.

Cracking the whip on CBI for their inaction on Mulayam Singh, Mayawati and Lalu Prasad Yadav in the disproportionate assets cases against them, he said the CBI was a slave to the government.

"The CBI does not act against those who favour the government, but are prompt enough to act against those who pose problems for the government," said Kejriwal.

Meanwhile, the CBI said that it will not probe against the Prime Minister.
