NEW DELHI: Backing the Chandrababu Naidu government in Andhra Pradesh on barring the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) from conducting raids in the state, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said his counterpart should not allow even the Income Tax Department in the state.
"Chandrababu has done the right thing. Modi is misusing the CBI and Income Tax Department. Why the CBI has not caught those behind the scams of demonetisation, Vijay Mallya, Rafale, Sahara Birla Diaries etc?" Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi.
बिलकुल सही किया चंद्रबाबु जी ने। मोदी जी CBI और इंकम टैक्स विभाग का दुरुपयोग कर रहे हैं। आज तक नोटबंदी, विजय माल्या, राफ़ेल, सहारा बिडला डायरी आदि घोटाले करने वालों को CBI ने क्यों नहीं पकड़ा?— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) November 16, 2018
नायडू जी, इंकम टैक्स वालों को भी अपने राज्य में मत घुसने देना https://t.co/IfH6UWueHv
He also advised Naidu "to not allow the Income Tax Department in the state".
In an unprecedented move, the Andhra Pradesh government on Friday barred the CBI from conducting raids or carrying out investigations in the state without its permission.
The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government issued the orders withdrawing 'general consent' to CBI officers to exercise jurisdiction in the state to investigate corruption charges against officials of the Central government and private persons.
