New Delhi, Dec 15 (IANS) Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday said that the prime minister has “nothing to do” with the CBI raids at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s office.

“It has become fashionable from the Delhi chief minister to quarrel with central government and take PM’s name for everything,” he said and added: “CBI does not function under the government. Gone are days of Congress when CBI used to be misused.”

Kejriwal said his office was raided by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday morning.

“CBI raided my office,” Kejriwal tweeted.

Delhi chief minister’s office is located at the Delhi Secretariat.

CBI raid not against Kejriwal: Jaitley

New Delhi, Dec 15 (IANS) Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Tuesday that the CBI raid was not against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, but against an official who was attached to his office, a claim rejected by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as a lie.

The matter was raised in the Rajya Sabha by TMC member Derek O’brien who said “this was unprecedented in the history of modern India”.

Jaitley said: “CBI raid has nothing to do with Kejriwal and his tenure as Delhi chief minister. The raid was done against an official who was attached to his office and that too in a matter prior to his becoming chief minister.”

Kejriwal on Tuesday morning tweeted that CBI raided his office, triggering a political storm.

Kejriwal said in another tweet: “When Modi could not handle me politically, he resorts to this cowardice.”

After Jaitley spoke in the Rajya Sabha, the Delhi chief minister shot back: “FM lied in Parliament. My own office files are being looked into to get some evidence against me. Rajender is an excuse”.

Kejriwal was referring to Rajendra Kumar, who is the secretary to the Delhi chief minister.

  1. Mr. Modi is not involved with anything happening in India, but only in the foreign lands.

    He doesn’t know anything about the recent event took place in Kerala breaking the
    political protocol and totally hurting the CM of Kerala and the people of Kerala.

    Modiji declared that Lord Shiva’s third eye has been opened in Kerala, only GOD know
    what will be happing in Kerala? One thing is for sure, the very well known State of
    Kerala for religious harmony is hit with problems already, the destruction of
    peace in Kerala.

    • A. S. Mathew – “only GOD know what will be happening in Kerala?

      Dear Matwew, according to Hindu Mythology, Lord Brahma is the Creator, Lord Vishnu is the Sustainer and Lord Shiva is the destroyer. Creation, Sustaining and Destruction is cyclical, and that is why “Punar Janma” is there. Brahma can not stop creation and therefore during “Tandava Nratya”, the Dance of Destruction, with the “Damaru in his Hand”, Shiva destroys. It is cyclical!

      Britain Created Unified India, Congress Liberated and Sustained it, and now the Shiva destroys. But, it is cyclical. Some other invader would make India a slave country, then a Gandhi or Congress would reincarnate to get liberty, in spite of reincarnation of a Savarkar or RSS at the same time to collude with the invader, India would be a secular democracy again, to be destroyed by the RSS, again.

  2. Dear readers,

    It has often been observed that if you are up against the establishment, every institution belonging to it becomes a weapon for the people in power to exact revenge on you. This statement might find relevance in cases like that of activists like Teesta Setalvad and other environment protection NGOs superstar Shah Rukh Khan might just be the latest victim of vendetta politics.

    Nor are these suspicions a matter of state secret. As this report notes, the CBI has a pathetic record of acting as His Master’s Voice.In a similar incident Himachal Pradesh chief minister Virbhadra Singh, who is the senior-most chief minister in the country, faced ED raid on the day of his daughter’s marriage.

    In the past BJP accusing the Congress of turning the investigating agency into the “Congress Bureau of Investigation”.
    Enforcement Directorate and the CBI have nowadays become “instruments of vendetta”.

    If Mr.Kejriwal wanted to be defeated,they need character assassination. They did it for Rahul Gandhi and Sonia to date. It will continue RSS political wing BJP reaches a goal of Hindu Rashtra. No matter who ever comes in the way he will see ‘puppies’ death.

    Sad end of democracy.

    Jai Hind
