NEW DELHI: Get the Delhi government's solar policy probed by the anti-corruption branch or CBI since it has received "worldwide acclaim", Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today taunted Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, with whom he has been locked in confrontation over various issues.
In a fresh letter to Jung, Kejriwal also accused him of "saving" BJP MP Mahiesh Girri and NDMC Vice Chairman Karan Singh Tanwar in the case of murder of an official of the civic body, M M Khan. Girri dared Kejriwal to prove the charges or quit politics.
"The (solar) policy is being discussed throughout the world. Greenpeace has praised it. Even UN climate change has termed it as a big step. Please conduct a CBI raid on Delhi Power Minister Satyender Jain by telling Prime Minister Narendra Modi," Kejriwal wrote.
On Khan's murder, he went on to allege that Jung has "beautifully" saved Girri and Tanwar from questioning by police which, he said, must have "pleased" Modi.
"Now Modiji is fully assured that no matter how much goondaism BJP men partake in, no one will be able to bend a hair. You will save them. And you will keep on framing Aam Aadmi Party by lodging false cases," he said.
This comes a day after the AAP chief wrote to the LG another letter wherein he had remarked that Modi will never make Jung the Vice-President of India.
When contacted, Girri said if Kejriwal has the courage, he should prove the allegations. "If he manages to prove, then I will quit politics, otherwise he should do so."
"I have absolutely no connection with the case. It just happened that I was in the LG office when a person had come with some documents related to the case. I did not bring that complainant. These are diversionary tactics by Kejriwal to
deflect attention from the parliamentary secretary issue," Girri said. PTI
