Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, today hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over being named in an FIR or police complaint on an alleged tanker scam.
“Modiji, I am not a Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi that you can scare me. I am not a Robert Vadra that you can have a setting (secret deal) with me. The Modi government doesn’t file cases against Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi or Vadra but it targets me,” Mr Kejriwal said.
“Modi has tried to intimidate people with raids, false cases and threats. But I am standing like a rock – I won’t bend, break or back off,” he added.
A case was registered on Monday by Delhi’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) in connection with the alleged Rs. 400-crore water tanker scam allegedly on then Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s watch. Mr Kejriwal was also named.
Yesterday, Mr Kejriwal said it was proof that PM Modi’s fight was with him. “You have asked (all investigating agencies to go after me. You conducted a CBI raid on me and got nothing. I welcome your FIR… I am glad that you have admitted that your fight is directly with me,” he said in a series of tweets.
