Tanker scam: Delhi CM Kejriwal attacks PM Modi, 'welcomes' FIR

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday launched another attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This time it was over the inclusion of his name in an FIR in connection with the alleged tanker scam.

Kejriwal taunted Modi saying he "welcomed" the FIR and was "glad" that the former has accepted that "his fight is directly with" the AAP leader.

Kejriwal also took to Twittter to claim that the Modi government has been targeting him instead of registering FIR against Congress President Sonia Gandhi in any case. Kejriwal asserted that he is not afraid of the "CBI and ACB of Modi".

"Modiji, you did not register FIR against (Robert) Vadra, did not register FIR against Sonia, did not register FIR in any cases, citing which you became the PM.

"All the investigating agencies under you - CBI, police, ACB. You have asked them to go after me. You conducted CBI raid on me. Got nothing. Now, welcome your FIR.

"I am glad that you have admitted that your fight is directly with me," he said in a series of tweets.

Kejriwal made the comments after a case was registered on Monday by Anti-Corruption Branch of Delhi in connection with the alleged 400-crore water tanker scam. Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's name is also linked to this scam.
