CBI raids Delhi minister, Chief Minister Kejriwal asks, “What does PM Modi want?”


The residence of Delhi’s Public Works Department (PWD) minister Satyendar Jain was raided by the CBI on Wednesday.

The CBI registered a fresh case against Jain in connection with alleged violation of norms in hiring architects for the PWD, officials said.

Five more locations, including residences of PWD officials and other private persons, are also being searched, they said.

Angry over the CBI raids, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took to twitter to hit out at Prime Minister Modi. He wrote, “What does PM Modi want?”

Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, too, didn’t seem to be pleased with the development.

Jain, already facing probe in a case pertaining to money laundering, confirmed in a tweet that the CBI was carrying out searches at his residence. “Cbi raids my house for hiring creative team by PWD. Professionals were hired for different projects. All were forced to leave by cbi,” wrote Jain.

The central agency had registered a preliminary enquiry into the hiring of 24 architects for a creative wing of the PWD through an agency, which reportedly lacked any prior experience, the officials added.
