After a CBI team questioned Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain’s wife in connection with alleged money laundering, the Delhi government on Monday slammed the central government for using “caged parrot” CBI in silencing critics.

“Another day, another raid! CBI now raids Minister Jain ‘s residence. Centre trying to silence dissenters via caged parrot,” Delhi government spokesperson Arunoday Prakash tweeted. “BJP model: You make Mohalla Clinics, save money in projects, (provide) free medicines, tests and surgeries… We (the BJP) will keep troubling you with CBI, IT (Income Tax department), ED (Enforcement Directorate),” he added.

Earlier in April, a case had been registered against Jain in connection with Rs 4.63 crore of money laundering in 2015-16.  “It is alleged that Jain was involved in money laundering to the tune of Rs 4.63 crore, when he was a public servant during 2015-16, through Prayas Info Solutions Private Limited, Akinchan Developers Private Limited and Managalyatan Projects Private Limited,” the CBI said. The agency examined Jain on last Thursday in connection with the probe.

Criticising the investigation, AAP officials said that the central government is carrying out “vendetta politics” against the party. “Central govt (sic) of BJP is misusing CBI for its vendetta politics. After Dy CM Manish Sisodia, BJP’s CBI raids on Minister,” the party said in a tweet

      CBI is the most professional organization in the world. All those who call it a caged parrot are living in the Congi's 70 years rule. Modi cas changed CBI up side down and front side back and left side right(wing). So this questioning of his wife is totally justified. In fact NIA, ED, Fkonomic offences wing, IB, should question her. While the BUTCHER THE TERRIBLE MODI GOES SCOT FREE TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES AND THE SAMARITAN BCH SUSMA SWARAJ FREELY VISITS LIECHTENSTEIN FOR BJP's and BJP piMPs' LOOT MONEY DEPOSITION THERE.

          CBI has evidence against Satyendra Jain. This includes a dossier provided by his ex colleague, Kapil Mishra. The AAP party is in the habit of crying 'wolf!' and they are required to do this frequently.

            Judiciary should take suo moto note of these comments and initiate action against these people for obstruction of justice and attempting to harass civil servants from cartying out their duties by casting aspersions on their character and motives.

                It is very simple. Face probe and come out clean. I think Mr Jain scared off

                  The charges are very serious. Money laundering of more than Rs.15 crores. CBI is bound to do its duty to unearth the fraud. AAP is simply making noise so that futher inquiries is kept on hold. But it will not be. A party born out of anti corruption movement is now in web of corruption charges.
