Rafale: Kejriwal wants CBI to raid PMO, AAP lodges plaint against PM

TIL Desk/National/New Delhi/ An ‘independent’ Central Bureau of Investigation should raid the Prime Minister’s Office, seize files and make arrests in connection with the Rafale fighter jet deal, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday, as his party lodged a police complaint against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Aam Aadmi Party’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh registered a complaint against Modi at North Avenue police station in New Delhi after a report was published by The Hindu newspaper on the Rafale deal.

‘In the light of today’s expose on Rafale, ‘independent’ CBI shud raid PMO, seize all the files related to Rafale and make arrests just like they raided my office and residence and Kolkatta police commissioner (sic),’ Kejriwal tweeted.

The report published by The Hindu claimed the defence ministry raised strong objections to ‘parallel discussions’ conducted by the PMO or Prime Minister’s Office during the negotiations over the Rs 59,000 crore Rafale deal between India and France.
