Kejriwal’s statement ‘absolute rubbish’: Arun Jaitley


New Delhi: Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley termed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s allegations against him as ‘rubbish’ and said that it is not suitable for him to respond to such statements.

“His (Arvind Kejriwal) morning statement appeared to be prima facie incorrect, but evening one seems to be absolute rubbish. And I don’t think I need to respond to rubbish,” Jaitley told the media here.

Attempting to downplay the raid conducted by the CBI on the Delhi Secretariat, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal alleged that the investigating agency was looking for the DDCA files related to graft cases in which Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is involved.

“The raid was conducted to look for the files of DDCA (Delhi and District Cricket Association) in which Jaitley is involved in graft cases,” Kejriwal claimed.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, hit back at Kejriwal for his unwarranted criticism of Prime Minister Modi following the CBI raid and alleged that a ‘nervous’ Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo is demeaning the PMO with his baseless allegation.

Refuting Kejriwal’s allegation on the raid on Chief Minister’s office, the CBI has said that the raid was conducted on the Principal Secretary’s office following a warrant.
