Accusing Narendra Modi of trying to intimidate him, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that unlike Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi he was not scared of the prime minister.
"Modiji, I am not a Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi that you can scare me. I am not a Robert Vadra that you can have a setting (secret deal) with me. The Modi government doesn't file cases against Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi or Vadra but it targets me," NDTV reported, quoting Kejriwal.
"Modi has tried to intimidate people with raids, false cases and threats. But I am standing like a rock - I won't bend, break or back off," he added.
The Delhi Anti-Corruption Branch had on Monday registered a case against former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in the matter of an alleged Rs 400-crore water tanker scam in which the AAP chief’s name also found a mention.
"You have asked (all investigating agencies to go after me. You conducted a CBI raid on me and got nothing. I welcome your FIR... I am glad that you have admitted that your fight is directly with me," Kejriwal had said in a series of tweets targeting Modi.
Meanwhile, Dikshit and Kejriwal will be questioned for their alleged involvement in the tanker scam in which the congress government under Dikshit is accused of bypassing rules while awarding tenders and causing losses worth crores the state exchequer, according to ACB chief MK Meena.
Sheila Dikshit had served as the Delhi chief minister of Delhi for three consecutive terms between 1998 and 2013, before Kejriwal's AAP made a clean sweep.
