Kejriwal takes aim at Modi: ‘You spend 18 hrs thinking of trying to stop my work, spend 2 hrs on country’

Kejriwal's attack on Modi comes days after the CBI chargesheet, which did not mention Manish Sisodia’s name in the excise case

With his deputy Manish Sisodia’s name missing from the CBI chargesheet in the Delhi excise policy case, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal trained guns at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday.

“It is being said that an additional supplement chargesheet may be filed in the case but hamaari jaanch toh Pradhan Mantri ji zindagi bhar karayenge, jab tak hum zinda hain jaanch chalti rahegi. Investigation against us has been going on ever since we formed the government in 2015 and all agencies have been put behind us. The investigations will go on but the chargesheet has shown they have nothing against Sisodia in the case.”

“My sources said that the PM was personally monitoring this case and he used to meet CBI-ED and direct them to do anything to find evidence against Sisodia, but they could not. Today, we can proudly say before the country that ‘Kejriwal kattar imandar hai aur humari party kattar imandar hai’,” he said.

“This is why they have a problem with us, this is why they are slinging mud at us every day,” he said. “I want to appeal to the PM, ‘Pradhan Mantri ji, aap kehte hain aap 18 ghante kaam karte hain. 18 ke 18 ghante aap bas yahi sochte hain ki main kis tarah se Kejriwal ko roku kaam karne se? Kis tarah se Kejriwal ke mantriyon ko giraftar karun, kis tarah se keechad fekun? (You say you work for 18 hours. All those hours you only think how to block Kejriwal’s work, how to arrest his ministers, how to sling mud?). I want to request you that of the 18 hours, if you give at least two hours for the country, the country will progress, unemployment will end. Don’t be so negative, be positive, think a little positive for the people.”

On yet another video from jailed minister SatyendarJain’s cell being leaked, Kejriwal said, “I don’t need to answer these questions. People of Delhi will answer on December 4. As the MCD elections are getting clear, BJP will release more such videos. You place 10 works of Kejriwal on one side and BJP’s 10 videos on one side. People will decide, they know and they will give the answer on December 4.”

“Only one week is left for elections. They couldn’t find anything against Sisodia. They (BJP) spread lies. If they would have found even a small evidence against him in the case, they would have made it big, but nothing was found. He has been given a clean chit,” he said.
