New Delhi, June 21: Targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his name being included in an FIR in connection with the alleged tanker scam, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday, June 21 "welcomed" the same and said he was "glad" that the former has accepted that "his fight is directly with" the AAP leader.
Taking to Twitter, Kejriwal also claimed that the Modi government has been targeting him instead of registering FIR against likes of Sonia Gandhi in any case, and asserted that he is not afraid of the "CBI and ACB of Modi".
"Modiji, you did not register FIR against (Robert) Vadra, did not register FIR against Sonia, did not register FIR in any cases, citing which you became the PM. "All the investigating agencies under you - CBI, police, ACB. You have asked them to go after me. You conducted CBI raid on me. Got nothing. Now, welcome your FIR.
"I am glad that you have admitted that your fight is directly with me," he said in a series of tweets.
मोदी जी, आपने वाड्रा के खिलाफ FIR नहीं की, सोनिया के खिलाफ FIR नहीं की, किसी घोटाले में FIR नहीं की, जिनका जिक्र कर कर के आप PM बने?(1/3)— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) June 20, 2016
सारी जांच एजेंसी आपके अंडर-CBI, पुलिस, ACB. सबको आपने मेरे पीछे छोड़ रखा। मुझ पर CBI रेड की। कुछ नहीं मिला। अब आपकी FIR का स्वागत है(2/3)— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) June 20, 2016
मुझे ख़ुशी है आपने स्वीकार किया कि आपकी लड़ाई सीधे मुझसे है।(3/3)— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) June 20, 2016
Kejriwal's comments come after a case was registered on Monday by Delhi's Anti-Corruption Branch in connection with the alleged 400-crore water tanker scam linking former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.
ACB chief MK Meena said two complaints were received with regard to the scam and those named in the complaints include Dikshit and Kejriwal. He said both Dikshit and Kejriwal will be quizzed.
