New Delhi: Congress on Wednesday sought to corner the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi over the alleged raid by Central Bureau Agency (CBI) in Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s office questioning why it kept sitting over the DDCA file related to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

“Why did AAP keep sitting over the alleged DDCA file related to Arun Jaitley for all this while? They have much explaining to do,” Congress leader Ajay Maken said in the Delhi Assembly.

Attacking Jaitley, Maken said that the Finance Minister must come clean on the issue as he was heading the DDCA when the alleged irregularities took place in the cricketing body.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal on Wednesday said that the CBI seized documents that had “no relation” to the allegations being probed against Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) conducted a raid on Tuesday.

“Docs seized from my office. No relation to allegations being probed. CBI kept reading DDCA file in my office. They wud hv seized it. But after my media briefing, they left it. Not clear if they took a copy,” Kejriwal said in a series of tweets on Wednesday.

He also attacked Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, asking why he was scared of a probe into the alleged irregularities at the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).

“FM lied in the Parliament yesterday…. Why is Jaitley ji so scared of DDCA probe? What is his role in DDCA scam?” he tweeted.

The CBI had searched the office of Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar in connection with a corruption case where the officer allegedly abused his position to award contracts to a particular firm.

Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

A BJP member Rajesh Kumar has filed a defamation complaint against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for tweeting objectional comments against his party men.

The complaint was filed before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal, who has listed the matter for a hearing on May 16.

Kumar, who claimed to be convenor of legal cell of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) Purvanchal Morcha in Delhi, told the court that he was shocked to see a tweet by Kejriwal saying that BJP members kept roaming around the country and raping Hindu girls.

“The accused (Kejriwal) has successfully dented the reputation of the complainant in particular and his party,” Kumar said in his complaint.

According to Kumar, he came across the tweet on September 30, 2018 and wanted to lodge a complaint immediately, but did not believing that the people would not take it seriously.

However, during Hanuman Jayanti celebrations in his society in April, one lady on realising that he was a BJP leader, taunted him citing the tweet.

There were several such incidents when the complainant had to face embarassment due to the “utterly irresponsible and defamatory tweet by Kejriwal, who holds such high position”, said Kumar in his plea.
