CBI asked to 'finish' Opposition parties who don't fall in line: Arvind Kejriwal
Arvind Kejriwal has maintained that the CBI seized documents that had "no relation" to the allegations being probed against Rajendra Kumar.
New Delhi: Taking his battle with the BJP-led central government to new heights, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday made a sensational claim saying that Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been directed to go after all Opposition parties and finish those who don't fall in line.
Escalating his attack on the Narendra Modi government, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief on Friday tweeted: “A CBI officer told me yest that CBI has been asked to target all opp parties n finish those who don't fall in line.”

The Delhi CM's statement comes after CBI on Tuesday raided on the office of his principal secretary Rajendra Kumar.
Ever since the dramatic event has unfolded, the AAP has been heavily criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party, with Kejrwial even going to term the Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a "psychopath" and "coward".
As the AAP dragged in the Finance Minister into the issue and escalated its attack on Thursday, Arun Jaitley hit back on allegations of irregularities against him in the DDCA affairs, saying it was a propaganda technique of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to deflect attention when he himself was in the "dock".
Referring to the controversy raked up by Kejriwal over the CBI action against his Principal Secretary, he accused the Chief Minister of resorting to "false propaganda continuously".
The Delhi CM has maintained that the CBI seized documents that had "no relation" to the allegations being probed against Rajendra Kumar.
"Docs seized from my office. No relation to allegations being probed. CBI kept reading DDCA file in my office. They wud hv seized it. But after my media briefing, they left it. Not clear if they took a copy," Kejriwal said.
