New Delhi: Following the accusations leveled against Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley by the posing of five questions by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) with regard to “financial irregularities” in Delhi cricket body, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has expressed fears of more CBI raids against opposition parties.
The AAP has stepped up its campaign for Jaitley’s resignation three days after a CBI raided the office of Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar.
In a tweet, Kejriwal said, “A CBI officer told me yesterday that CBI has been asked to target all opposition parties and finish those who don’t fall in line”.
He also maintained that Jaitley was the brain behind the raid so that the probe agency could read files related to an inquiry ordered by Delhi government into wrongdoings in the Delhi and District Cricket Association.
Jaitley has denied any wrongdoings and the CBI also said that only files related to Kumar were searched in the raid, and its action was not linked to DDCA files.
Accusing him of not revealing the full facts in his blog about a probe panel clearing him of wrongdoings, the AAP also called Jaitley a “master of half truth and beautiful lies”.
AAP leaders also alleged that the web of corruption around Jaitley led to Hockey India Chief Narendra Batra and they threatened to spill the beans in this regard on Saturday.
