Continuing the controversy with the central government, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on 15 January alleged his deputy Manish Sisodia and minister Satinder Jain are next in the line of raids by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The Delhi chief minister said the officers working under Sisodia and Jain were being asked to get “something wrong” signed by them. The CBI is controlled by the home ministry.

In a tweet in Hindi, Kejriwal said, ‘Modi ji, aap kuchh bhi kar lo, sachchai hamare saath hai. Aap hamara kuchh nahi bigaad sakte (Modiji, do whatever you wish to do, the truth is with us. You cannot do us any harm).”

In December, a raid on Kejriwal’s office by the CBI had led to a huge row, with the AAP leader accusing the central government of engineering the raid in a bid to get files related to the Delhi and District Cricket Association.

The CM accused finance minister Arun Jaitley of financial irregularities and conflict of interest during the 13 years he headed the DDCA till 2013.
