Kejriwal's bluff

New Delhi: Senior journalists took to Twitter to call Kejriwal’s bluff as the Delhi Chief Minister lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi calling him a “coward and psychopath” following the alleged CBI raid ‘in his office’ over corruption charges against his secretary.

Targeting secretary Rajendra Kumar, CBI officials swooped on Kejriwal’s office at the Delhi Secretariat over a 2002 corruption case, triggering a string of angry responses from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader who took office in February 2015, seizing Rs 2.4 lakh and documents related to three immovable properties from Kumar’s official residence.

While Finance Minister Arun Jaitley denied CBI raided Kejriwal saying the target was the officer who was attached to his office, the AAP called this a lie.

Before long the senior journalists took to social media exposing Kejriwal’s bluff over ‘politicizing’ the issue.
