New Delhi: Taking potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for using investigative agencies against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra on Sunday said the apprehension of losing power in the BJP-ruled states’ has forced the Centre to adopt such tactics.
“They (BJP) have realised that they are losing Punjab, Goa and the kind of response Arvind Kejriwal ji has got in Gujarat, I think this fear is forcing them to focus on the AAP,” Mishra told ANI.
The Delhi Minister taunted Prime Minister Modi, saying the latter has an obsession for Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
“I think Modi is obsessed with Arvind Kejriwal. All the investigative agencies have been instructed to leave the job and focus on the AAP MLAs and Ministers,” he added.
Mishra further said the terror attacks are being investigated by Pakistani agencies, while the national agencies have been left to harass the AAP ministers.
“On one hand there are terrorist attacks happening and they are inviting ISI to investigate the attack and on the other hand the Central agencies like the CBI and Delhi Police are only pursuing cases of the AAP MLAs and are arresting them on false charges,” he said.
