New Delhi: Accusing the government of not taking action against Congress President Sonia Gandhi in connection with the AgustaWestland chopper deal, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today demanded dissolution of its investigation and anti-graft agencies.
He said PM Modi “would have arrested” him by now had his name figured in the Italian court’s order in connection with the deal, but has not taken action against the Gandhi family as he finds them “honest”.
“Amit Shahji is asking Soniaji with folded hands – ‘please tell who took bribes’. Is this how probe is conducted? Dissolve CBI and ACB then,” Mr Kejriwal said in a series of tweets, referring to the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Anti-Corruption Bureau.
“Modiji conducted CBI raid on me, but not on Soniaji and Vadraji. Modiji finds Gandhi family as honest. Modiji would have arrested me by now had my name figured in the Italian court order. But (they are) not even probing Soniaji. Why?” Mr Kejriwal asked.
Mr Kejriwal had yesterday dared BJP to arrest Mrs Gandhi and other Congress leaders in connection with the controversial chopper deal, alleging that there was a “strong relationship between Congress and BJP”.
Mentioning CBI raid on the office of his Principal Secretary in December last year, he had asked why there was no such action against Congress leaders.
