Kejriwal says Modi owes Delhi an apology After raids on his minister

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi should apologise to the people of Delhi for “constantly troubling” the government they voted for, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said following raids at multiple premises linked to Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot on Wednesday.

“Friendship with Nirav Modi and (Vijay) Mallya and raid on us? Modiji you conducted raids on me, Satyendar (Jain) and Manish (Sisodia). What happened to those (raids)? Nothing was found. So before you go with another raid at least apologise to the people of Delhi for troubling their elected government,” Mr Kejriwal tweeted.

At least 16 locations in Delhi and Gurgaon were raided by a team of over 60 income tax department officials and the police in connection with an alleged tax evasion case. In May, The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raided the residence of Delhi PWD Satyendar Jain in connection with alleged violation of norms in hiring architects for the department .
