CBI raid at Delhi Secretariat: PM's blood boils on hearing my name, says Kejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal feels Prime Minister Narendra Modi should be ashamed of himself for the raid; dares him to take action against his own partymen
New Delhi: Mounting a fierce attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal yesterday demanded his resignation over what he termed was a ‘flop raid’ by the CBI at the Delhi Secretariat to ‘protect’ Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the alleged DDCA scam.

"I seek the Prime Minister’s resignation for conducting such a flop raid and for misusing the CBI.
If he uses the CBI to get any file then the country will have no democracy left. Tomorrow there can be raids on any Chief Minister.
This is dangerous for the country’s federal structure. Prime Minister should be ashamed of himself over the raids. His blood boils on hearing my name," Kejriwal said.
He added, "He’s being mentally harassed.
CBI has got nothing against him in the last eight days. If I can remove my minister and babu for committing corruption, it is also my duty to protect honest officers."
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court yesterday sought response of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders on a civil defamation suit filed against them by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. Joint Registrar (JR) Kovai Venugopal issued notice to Kejriwal and the AAP leaders — Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha and Deepak Bajpai — on the suit by Jaitley. “Issue notice to the defendants (AAP leaders). Written statements by the defendants be filed within three weeks. Thereafter, in two weeks’ time, the plaintiff (Jaitley) will file replication,” the JR said.
