BJP-led Centre trying to terrorise delhi government, CBI raid to cover up slum demolition, says AAP’s Alka Lamba

Delhi,Alka Lamba: The CBI raid on our party chief and Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal’s office is politically motivated. It is not a raid on or against corruption. The said case is 13 years old. It was registered in 2002. At that time Sheila Dikshit of the Congress was the Delhi chief minister.

Nothing happened in the last 13 years. All of a sudden the CBI has woken up to the case. They have actually raided Kejriwal’s office. The BJP is lying that Kejriwal’s office was not raided. The CBI has actually raided his secretariat, where he functions from. They have sealed the office where Kejriwal has kept most of the files related to Delhi administration. Is it not shocking? Is it not surprising?

The Centre is on a back foot after the inhuman demolition of slums at Shakur Basti by the Railways. Even the Delhi High Court has described it as an inhuman act and slammed the Railways. The Centre is now facing the heat. Just to divert the attention, the CBI controlled by the Centre has raided Kejriwal’s office. All files related to Shakur Basti are at the CM’s office and the same office has been sealed by the CBI. They might tamper with these files and may even destroy them.
Our government has passed the Jan Lokpal Bill and sent it to the Centre. The Centre has been using the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Dr. Najeeb Jung to harass us. It is also using the Commissioner of Police, Delhi to implicate us in false cases. They are digging our old FIRs against our MLAs and arresting them for no reason. After the LG and the Delhi police, the Centre is now using the CBI. It has already divided the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) of Delhi government. One head reports to the state and the other one to the Centre.
The raid has exposed the hypocrisy of the BJP over corruption. More than 100 people have so far mysteriously died in the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh. Did the Centre raid MP chief minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan’s office? No.
The connection between Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje and the IPL founder Lalit Modi are well known. He is absconding. Did the CBI or any other central agency raid her office? No.
Then why raid only us? I will tell you the reason.
The Principal Secretary to chief minister is a very honest man. He is not a corrupt man. By raiding Rajender Kumar’s office, the Centre is terrorising all honest bureaucrats working in the Delhi government. They are warning them that whoever is close to Kejriwal or honest will be targeted even if they are posted outside Delhi. Our officers are now scared. The Centre wants to paralyse the entire administration by doing this.
The AAP is against corruption and it is non-negotiable for us. CM Kejriwal himself got corrupt IAS officer SP Singh arrested by the CBI. We actually informed CBI about his corruption. Kejriwal sacked his own Cabinet minister on the charges of corruption and even ordered a CBI probe against him.
Did the BJP or any other party do something like this in the past? Certainly no. What more do you want us to show or prove? The AAP needs no certificate from corrupt parties. We are the only party which is fighting corruption and all kinds of injustice in the society.
The CBI raid has shocked the family of Rajender Kumar. His daughters are studying in school. They are in shock. All are terrified. Is it not inhuman?
I don’t see anything wrong in Kejriwal calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a coward and a psychopath. He has carefully chosen such words to express his shock over the current happenings. Modi is an expert in using unparliamentary words. Therefore the BJP can’t teach manners to others. Secondly Kejriwal has used the right words to expose Modi.
We are not scared. By doing such things, the BJP can’t terrorise us. We will launch a fierce attack and expose BJP’s duplicity. We have nothing to fear.
