New Delhi: Buoyed by the high court judgment over jurisdiction of the Delhi government’s anti-graft body, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said the verdict was a “huge embarrassment” for the Modi dispensation and has strengthened his government’s fight against corruption.

At an event to mark 100 days of his government, Kejriwal said the high court’s order clarifying that the Home Ministry has no rights to interfere in the matters of the ACB was a major victory for people of the city.

In a statement, the AAP government termed the high court verdict in “restoring the powers of the Anti-Corruption Branch” a “decisive victory” for the people of the city.
