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.

Modi government betrayed farmers: Kejriwal.

The Modi government has stabbed farmers in the back by telling the Supreme Court that it cannot implement recommendations of the M.S. Swaminathan Commission which the BJP promised to do so in 2014, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

Addressing a farmers rally here at Jantar Mantar, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also slammed the Centre’s crop insurance scheme as a “fraud” and demanded that it be scrapped.

“Soldiers at the borders and farmers at thier farms are in distress. It’s a sad state of affairs. The BJP has dishonoured the promises it made in 2014,” Arvind Kejriwal said.

Thousands of farmers from across the country marched from Ramlila Maidan to Jantar Mantar in the heart of the capital seeking loan waiver and higher crop prices and warning political parties not to ignore their plight.

Reminding the BJP’s promise vis-a-vis the Swaminathan Commission, Kejriwal accused the ruling party of going back on its election promise.

“They have filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court and said they can’t implement it. There can’t be a greater betrayal than this. This government has stabbed farmers in the back,” he said, asking the government to take back the affidavit.

He warned that if it failed to do so, farmers would teach the saffron party a lesson in the 2019 elections.

Demanding loan waiver for farmers, he also said that they must get fair price for their produce.

“They are not begging but fighting for their rights. Once their loans are waived, they won’t demand it again. The government should also buy the farmers’ produce at appropriate price.”

He blasted the government’s crop insurance scheme.

“This is not an insurance scheme but it is BJP’s ‘kisan daka yojna’ (plunder farmers scheme). This must go and the money paid by farmers be returned. Instead, the government should start a compensation scheme for farmers.”

The Modi government was worried more about Ambanis and Adanis, he alleged. (IANS)
