"Modi is a Psychopath" - Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal
NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday accused his arch-rival Narendra Modi of waging a political vendetta, branding the Indian premier a "psychopath" after federal investigators raided his administration's headquarters.
Modi is a coward and a psycopath— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 15, 2015
The firebrand chief minister, who founded and leads the anti-corruption Aam Aadmi party, is a bitter opponent of Modi, and the pair have clashed repeatedly in recent months.
When Modi cudn't handle me politically, he resorts to this cowardice— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 15, 2015
A spokesman for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) confirmed officers had sealed off several offices in the Delhi secretariat where Kejriwal is based, although officials denied the move was politically motivated.
Kejriwal said his own office was among the rooms raided although the CBI denied this was the case.
News of the raid was broken by Kejriwal himself, who posted on Twitter that "CBI raids my office" and then accused Modi of being "a coward and a psychopath" who could not "handle me politically".
CBI lying. My own office raided. Files of CM office are being looked into. Let Modi say which file he wants?— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 15, 2015
There was no immediate comment from the CBI, but India television cited sources in the bureau as saying the raid was against Kejriwal’s principal secretary Rajendra Kumar.
Although Kejriwal was beaten by Modi in the general election, he then oversaw a dramatic landslide victory over Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in polls at the start of the year in the Delhi state assembly.
