Akhilesh is 'enjoying' CBI 'fight'

Akhilesh Yadav

The NDA government may have been pushed to the corner over the 'CBI vs CBI' fight but Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Akhilesh Yadav is ''enjoying'' the same so much so that his ''appetite has increased''.

''The fighting within the CBI may have perturbed some people but I am enjoying it greatly'' Akhilesh told reporters here on Friday.

The SP supremo said that his appetite had increased since the 'CBI vs CBI' began and that he had been ''eating two additional chapatis''.

''This government (NDA) first ruined the banks and now it wants to destroy the CBI," Akhilesh said,

The SP leader said that the current fighting within the CBI was ''very dangerous'' for the country.

He said that he and his family had once been threatened by the previous regimes by using CBI.

In reply to a question, Akhilesh supported the demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to investigate the Rafale jet deal. ''Questions have been raised on the deal... the truth must be brought before the people... we support the JPC demand,'' he said.

Congress and some other opposition parties have been demanding the formation of the JPC to investigate the Rafale deal but so far the BJP government has refused to concede the same.
