Had I been in Modi’s place, I would have sacked Jaitley: Kejriwal
New Delhi : Continuing his tirade against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said had he been in his place, he would have sacked Finance Minister Arun Jaitley immediately.
“If I were in place of Shri Narendra Modi ji, I would have immediately sacked Jaitley ji,” Kejriwal tweeted, mounting a fresh offensive over the alleged irregularities in Delhi and District Cricket Association.
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 should be no politician in any sports body. Let sports be handled by professionals,” Kejriwal tweeted.
If I were in place of Sh Narendra Modi ji, I wud have immediately sacked Jaitley ji
