He said that the new Aam Aadmi Party government of Arvind Kejriwal "will definitely pursue the FIR we lodged against former chief minister Sheila Dikshit".

Speaking after he and Kejriwal met Modi, Sisodia said: "Our politics is not to stop Narendra Modi. It is about transparency in governance. We have no personal differences with Modi."

He said they had "a very good meeting" with Modi earlier on Thursday and the prime minister's response to the AAP demand for statehood for Delhi was positive.

Sisodia said Modi explained his inability to attend Kejriwal's swearing-in Saturday, saying his schedule was drawn up two months earlier. He said the AAP's focus right now was Delhi.

"That is what we have been voted for. We aren't thinking of Punjab or other states right now," he said.

He insisted that new electricity tariff rates would be announced as soon as possible.

"It would be wrong to call it a subsidy. It will be in place as long as discoms (distribution companies) are not investigated," he said.
