AAP, BJP trade barbs

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the BJP exchanged barbs over the CBI raids in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) at the Delhi Secretariat on Tuesday.

The BJP sought an apology from the AAP for using unparliamentary language against Prime Minister Narendra Modi but the AAP said the BJP-led Centre should apologise for its acts first.

The AAP said the raid was the first step by Modi towards dislodging the Arvind Kejriwal government. “When Modi couldn’t handle me politically, he resorts to this cowardice,” tweeted Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

“Modi is a coward and a psychopath,” Kejriwal further tweeted. Minister for Communications and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad said that Kejriwal should apologise for blaming the Centre for the raid. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said: “If Centre will apologise fir its acts we will apologise for our language.”

Leader of the Opposition in the Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta said the chief minister is making an issue out of nothing. “He (Kejriwal) should cooperate in the fight against corruption. The CBI officials are doing their job and the AAP government should support them,” Gupta said.
