Kejriwal residence renovation case: Delhi CM reacts to CBI probe, says 'won't bow down'
Kejriwal residence renovation case: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party Chief Arvind Kejriwal lashed out at the central government after the CBI registered a preliminary enquiry to probe 'alleged' irregularities in the construction and renovation of his residence.
"What can we expect from a 'Fourth pass Raja'? They want me to bow down before them. They want to break me. But I will not bow down", the Delhi CM said.
The CBI has launched an investigation into alleged irregularities in the construction and renovation of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's official house.
The BJP claims that around Rs 45 crore was spent on the "renovation" of Kejriwal's official residence , 6, Flagstaff Road, in the city's Civil Lines neighbourhood.
"This shows that the Prime Minister is distressed. Till now, he has had over 50 enquiries conducted. He has got over 33 cases registered against me. He got it all enquired but nothing came out. Ever since I assumed the charge of the Delhi Chief Minister, they have been making enquiries against me. They have found nothing to date", he further said.
The Delhi CM further asserted that the central agency will find no evidence of irregularities in the construction of his residence.
"They have started a new enquiry. We welcome it. But nothing will come out", he further said.
Kejriwal further took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying, "Today, I am presenting a challenge before the 'fourth pass Raja', if you find nothing in this investigation, are you ready to resign from your post having had conducted false enquiries"?
"The BJP is leaving no stone unturned in finishing off the Aam Aadmi Party. Today, there is only the AAP seeking votes based on work done in the field of health and education. However, the BJP does not want the poor to receive the best education and healthcare services. This will lead to the defeat of the BJP's religion and caste-based politics," the AAP said earlier on Wednesday.
