As the CBI raided the Delhi minister Satyendar Jain, also an AAP leader, the party supremo Arvind Kejriwal tweeted in anger “What does the PM Modi want?”.
The raids were allegedly carried out by the CBI this morning over alleged violation in the hiring of consultants for a government body.
It need be mentioned Satyendar Jain is the minister in charge of the Public Words Department (PWD) in Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party government.
He is now facing allegations of violating rules to hire a creative team for PWD.
Officials have confirmed that searches at five more locations, including residences of other PWD officials and private persons were carried out.
The CBI has also registered a fresh case against Minister Jain.
The CBI alleges that the contract documents for the hiring of 24 people for “mohalla clinics” and other PWD projects were not in order.
Sources say the CBI did not find any evidence to prosecute Soumya Jain.>
