Delhi minister Satyendar Jains house was raided by the CBI over violation in the hiring of consultants for a government body that he oversees.
After the incidence Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, tweeted: “What does the PM Modi want? ”
“CBI raids my house for hiring creative team by PWD. Professionals were hired for different projects. All were forced to leave by CBI,” Mr Jain said in a post that was retweeted by Mr Kejriwal.
The CBI said that the contract documents for the hiring of 24 people for “mohalla clinics” and other PWD projects were not in order and they have registered a fresh case against Mr Jain.
CBI was earlier investigating his daughter Soumya Jain over her appointment as an adviser to the “mohalla clinic (neighbourhood clinic)” project launched after AAP took power in Delhi.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, quoting a report, said the creative teams had been approved by the central plan body NITI Aayog. “The Aam Aadmi Party is not going to stop with this practice,”
“Six months ago, the CBI came to my house as well. We are working for education, for power, for so many other problems in the city. Nothing is going to come out of these raids. This is all happening just to distract the people from the work we are doing. They are trying to defame us,” said the deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
