It seems that the war of words and charges and counter charges between the BJP and the AAP will never end. The confrontation between Delhi’s ruling AAP and the Centre has only further intensified with the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal making another fresh allegations that CBI has been asked to “target” the opposition and “finish those who don’t fall in line”. Kejriwal tweeted, “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.”
Kejriwal’s latest salvo came a day after he demanded that Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley be removed from the Cabinet for alleged corruption in Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) which he had headed for 14 years till 2013.
A combative Jaitley in a press conference had clearly rejected the allegations calling it was a propaganda technique of Kejriwal to deflect attention when he himself was in the “dock”. The BJP came out with its all guns blazing and resolutely defended Arun Jaitley and rubbished the charges levelled by AAP.
The AAP chief once again chose the social media route to level the charges. He had virtually live-tweeted the CBI raid at his Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar’s office in the Delhi the Delhi Secretariat.
Kejriwal had said Jaitley’s assertion that AAP’s allegations against him are “unsubstantiated and non-specific” could not be treated as “gospel truth” as the charges against him were “very, very serious”.
It may be recalled that the AAP government has been heavily criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party, with Kejrwial even going to term the Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a “psychopath” and “coward”. Comments that had the BJP fuming in anger and demanding apology
