Launching a scathing attack on the Modi government and Congress over the AgustaWestland chopper scam, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said the Prime Minister does not have “enough courage” to arrest Sonia Gandhi and that the two parties have an “alliance in corruption”.

Also questioning the progress of the investigation in the chopper deal, Kejriwal alleged that there hasn’t been an “inch” of movement on the probe, despite the Modi government coming to power on the assurances that the corrupt will be taken to task.

Kejriwal said while the CBI raided his office, it could not even interrogate Vadra.

They got a CBI raid conducted on me but could not get anything beyond four mufflers in a day long raid. But there is no raid on Sonia Gandhi. Why is Modi scared of her? Before elections he used to say Vadra is Congress’ son-in-law, now it looks like even Modi has adopted him.

Kejriwal further added that, “The papers of his (Vadra) land scam are lying in Rajasthan. They have government in Haryana, Rajasthan and Centre. What are they waiting for? Why is there no action against him? CBI hasn’t called him even once because Modi doesn’t have courage.”

“Amit Shah says Sonia ji please you tell us who who all took bribe. Manohar Parrikar says Sonia ji you please tell who all have taken bribe. Is any interrogation conducted like this? If you would have told earlier that you both (Congress and BJP) were hand in glove nobody would have voted for you,” Kejriwal said.

He said that both parties possessed “secrets” of each other and claimed that the details of Modi’s degrees were given to them by Congress leaders from Gujarat, who were not “permitted” to raise the issue earlier by the Gandhi family.

Again raising the degree issue, Kejriwal said the country will continue to respect him if he accepted that his degree was “fake”, but people will not tolerate fraud and forged degrees. He said his party MLAs were arrested over trivial issues and demanded that Modi should also be treated like former Delhi law minister Jitendra Singh Tomar, who was arrested in an alleged fake degree row.
