Arvind Kejriwal Calls Prime Minister Narendra Modi A ‘Psychopath And Coward’

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over alleged Central Bureau of Investigation raids on the CM’s office on Tuesday.

He went as far as to call PM Modi a ‘coward and a psychopath.’

He attacked the prime minister and said that when Modi can’t defeat him politically, he is resorting to these acts of cowardice.


The CBI, however, denied that they raided or sealed the chief minister’s office. They claimed that they were searching the office of a senior bureaucrat who was caught taking bribe last week.

The agency said it has registered a case against secretary to the chief minister, Rajendra Kumar, on allegations of abusing his official position by “favouring a particular firm in the last few years in getting tenders from Delhi government departments.”

  CBI has said the case was registered based on a complaint filed former Delhi Dialogue Commission member Ashish Joshi who has a running feud with Kejriwal.

With this episode, the Aam Aadmi Party seems to be coming in direct confrontation with the Centre.

  AAP leader Ashish Khetan termed the incident as an undeclared state of emergency.

“The Modi government wants to turn our country into a police state where there are no civil rights,” he said.

Reports suggest that Kejriwal and other members of the ruling AAP were stopped from entering their offices by a CBI team at the Delhi Secretariat.

Raids are still on at the CM’s office on the third floor, say sources. AAP claims that the CBI has refused to give any reason.

AAP came to power in February after winning a massive mandate in Delhi. Ever since the AAP assumed office, there have been direct confrontations between the Centre and Delhi on important issues like law and order, police and land.

Few days ago, when Kejriwal was asked about vendetta politics, in connection with the National Herald case against Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, he told NDTV: “There is definitely a vendetta against AAP. Five of our MLAs have been arrested on flimsy grounds.”

Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said that the prime minister has “nothing to do” with the CBI raids at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s office.

“CBI is an independent organisation. The government does not interfere at all. How can you criticize the central government and the prime minister? PM has nothing to do with this,” Naidu told reporters.

“It has become fashionable from the Delhi chief minister to quarrel with central government and take PM’s name for everything,” he said and added: “CBI does not function under the government. Gone are days of Congress when CBI used to be misused.”
