PM should concentrate on governance, not snooping on opponents: Kejriwal

Kejriwal also attacked CBI alleging that its officers are directing Delhi govt officials on awarding contracts to companies.

New Delhi: Launching a tirade against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said he should focus on governance, which is ‘suffering’ under NDA, rather than ‘snooping’ on opponents.

Kejriwal also attacked the CBI alleging that its officers are directing Delhi government officials on awarding contracts to companies.

Kejriwal took on Modi over reports that the CBI is questioning officials of the city administration in a case against Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar.

"PM should concentrate on governance, which is suffering badly under NDA, rather than snooping on opponents," said one of Kejriwal's tweets.

The AAP chief dared Modi to form a "team" if the latter wants information about him. Kejriwal said that he will make himself available to any such team for being questioned.

"Can the Prime Minister explain this? CBI reports directly to him. What does PM want? PM wants info about me? Let PM set up a team. I will come and answer all their questions. I have nothing to hide.”

"CBI is instructing Delhi government officers over the phone on which company should be given contracts and which ones should not be," Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.

The agency had earlier firmly refuted Kejriwal's allegation that it did not follow proper procedure for summoning his officials.

Rubbishing his claim that the officials were called for questioning over phone, CBI sources had said all necessary formalities were done through correspondence.

CBI sources said the questioning of personal staff of the Chief Minister's Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar by the agency was approved by Kejriwal himself as mentioned in a written correspondence from the Delhi Secretariat yesterday.
