As Income Tax Department on Wednesday conducted raids in multiple locations of the Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot, CM Arvind Kejriwal attacked BJP government over Nirav Modi and Mallya. The Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party chief in a tweet said, BJP does frienship with scammers like Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya and attacks us.
CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, "Nirav Modi, Mallya se dosti aur hum par raid?" AAP chief said that the raids were a failure as nothing had come out of raids that had targeted him and his two colleagues.
"Before the next raid, you should apologise to the people of Delhi for harassing their elected government," he added.
नीरव मोदी, माल्या से दोस्ती और हम पर रेड?— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) October 10, 2018
मोदी जी, आपने मुझ पे, सत्येन्द्र पे और मनीष पे भी तो रेड करवाई थीं? उनका क्या हुआ? कुछ मिला? नहीं मिला? तो अगली रेड करने के पहले दिल्ली वालों से उनकी चुनी सरकार को निरंतर परेशान करने के लिए माफ़ी तो माँग लीजिए? https://t.co/GUGEb0dwL5
