New Delhi: Accusing the government of not taking action against Sonia Gandhi in connection with the controversial AgustaWestland chopper deal, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday demanded dissolution of CBI and ACB.

Kejriwal said that Modi-led government would have arrested him by now had his name figured in the Italian court's order in connection with the deal, but has not taken action against the Gandhi family as they find them honest.

The AAP leader also hit out at BJP President Amit Shah for asking Gandhi "with folded hands" to name those who took alleged bribe in the deal and questioned whether "this is how probe is conducted".

"Modiji conducted CBI raid on me, but not on Soniaji and Vadraji. Modiji finds Gandhi family as honest. Modiji would have arrested me by now had my name figured in the Italian court order. But (they are) not even probing Soniaji. Why?" Kejriwal asked.

"Amit Shahji is asking Soniaji with folded hands - 'please tell who took bribes'. Is this how probe is conducted? Dissolve CBI and ACB then," he said in a series of tweets.

Kejriwal on Thursday dared BJP to arrest Gandhi and other Congress leaders in connection with the controversial chopper deal, alleging that there was a "strong relationship between Congress and BJP".

Mentioning CBI raid on the office of his Principal Secretary in December last year, he had asked why there was no such action against Congress leaders.

Attacking Gandhi, Shah had yesterday asked her to name those who received the "kickbacks" in the deal.

"All I want to ask her is that those who gave bribe are in jail in Italy. Then where are those who received the kickbacks? Who were in power at that time? They are responsible (for the scam) and they should bring out the truth. It should be disclosed before the people of the country," he had said.
