Kejriwal targets Modi over corruption

New Delhi, June 10: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday targeted Prime Minister rendra Modi for taking control of Delhi’s Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB). Kejriwal told the Delhi assembly that he was uble to act against incidents of corruption of the Congress period because he did not have the ACB with him anymore. That is when Modi sent paramilitary forces to take control of the ACB, the chief minister said. “The ACB is not in our hands,” he pointed out, giving reasons why a probe had not been ordered into the so-called water tanker scam. “Everyone knows that the Congress and BJP (Bharatiya Jata Party) are hand in glove (over corruption issues),” he said. “They are like ‘pati and patni’ (husband and wife).” Kejriwal spoke after BJP legislator Vijender Gupta dramatically stood on the bench to demand action by the Kejriwal government on the water tanker scam that had taken place during the earlier Congress regime.  The chief minister accused the BJP — the party has three legislators in Delhi, of which one, O.P. Sharma, has been barred from attending the house — of doing nothing but creating a ruckus. (IANS)
