Modi not letting ACB work, alleges Kejriwal

New Delhi, Aug 9 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday took potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he was not letting the city government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) function.

“Either let us (Aam Aadmi Party government) do work, or you (Modi) do. Take our Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB), if you wish, but at least do something,” Kejriwal said at an event in Burari area of north Delhi.

“After the formation of our government in Delhi, in three months we abolished corruption from the capital, but on June 8, Narendra Modi sent paramilitary forces and took over our ACB,” he said.

Taking a jibe at Modi’s “Na khaunga, na khane dunga” (Won’t take bribe, won’t allow corruption) remark, Kejriwal said the central government has now adopted the policy of “Na kaam karunga, na kaam karne dunga” (Won’t work, won’t allow anyone to work).

“Earlier they used to say ‘Na khaunga na khaane dunga’, now they say ‘Na kaam karunga, na kaam karne dunga’,” he said.

The event marked the addition of 600 more beds to the 200-bed hospital at Burari.

Taking a dig at the Bharatiya Janata Party, Kejriwal said his government was working round-the-clock to deliver on all its promises, but the BJP was busy in taking revenge on the AAP.

“We are working 24 hours to fulfill all our promises, but the BJP is busy in taking revenge on us. Every month, they (Delhi Police at the behest of the BJP) detain one of our MLAs,” he said.

“They (BJP) have put the entire Delhi Police force in arresting our MLAs. They do not have time for women’s safety,” he added.
