New Delhi, Dec 16: Amid reports of Delhi Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar embroiled into corruption controversy, it has emerged that the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was warned in May 2015 about corruption.
As per a report published in Daily Mail, it has come to the fore that the anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International (TI) had written to CM on May 27 this year, about serious allegations of corruption against principal secretary Rajendra Kumar.
Transparency International told the media house that till date, they haven't received any response from Kejriwal's office on their letter on Kumar, that urged him him to intervene personally in the serious matter.
When Kejriwal's media advisor Nagendar Sharma was asked on the same, then, he refused to comment on the issue.
Besides Kejriwal, the letter was reportedly marked to Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Najeeb Jung, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Pranab Mukherjee and the Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC).
Post CBI's raid on Tuesday, Dec 15, an ugly war of words was unleashed between Kejriwal and Centre. In a series of tweets, Kejriwal called PM Narendra Modi a 'psychopath' and a 'coward'.
"When Modi cudn't handle me politically, he resorts to this cowardice. CBI lying. My own office raided. Files of CM office are being looked into. Let Modi say which file he wants?", he tweeted.
"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. If CBI had any evidence against Rajender, why didn't they share it wid me? I wud hv acted against him", he further tweeted.
"My own office files are being looked into to get some evidence against me. Rajender is an excuse", he said in another tweet.
CBI registered a case against Kumar and others on allegations against the officer that he abused his official position by "favouring a particular firm in the last few years in getting tenders from Delhi government departments".
