New Delhi: Continuing his tirade against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said had he been in his place, he would have sacked Finance Minister Arun Jaitley immediately.
Mounting a fresh offensive over the alleged irregularities in Delhi and District Cricket Association, Kejriwal tweeted,
If I were in place of Sh Narendra Modi ji, I wud have immediately sacked Jaitley ji— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 23, 2015
The Prime Minister as well the BJP have rallied behind Jaitley. In a strong show of support for Jaitley yesterday, Modi said the Finance Minister will come through "with flying colours" against charges of corruption levelled against him by the opposition in the same way party veteran L K Advani did in the Hawala case.
The Delhi Chief Minister also said the sports bodies should be free from politicians and be handled by professionals.
There shud be no politician in any sports body. Let sports be handled by professionals.— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 23, 2015
