"It has become necessary to reveal that why did the CBI come to my office today and which was the file they were looking for. This is the DDCA file under which Arun Jaitley is getting trapped. (Ye file hai DDCA ka file jiske andar Arun Jaitley phas rahe hain)," the Delhi Chief Minister claimed.

Kejriwal said his government had set up an inquiry committee to probe alleged irregularities in DDCA which had submitted its report. "Jaitley was the DDCA President for many years and I had set up a committee to probe all the corruption that has taken place during his tenure. The committee has submitted its report and a commission of inquiry was to be set up over it, and a file pertaining to it was in my office," alleged Kejriwal.

The CBI had earlier clarified it carried out searches at the office of Kejriwal's Principal Secretary Rajender Kumar's office at the Delhi Secretariat and not that of the Chief Minister. The action was in connection with allegations against Kumar of favouring private companies in awarding government contracts from 2007-2014.

The Chief Minister said the sole motive of the raid was to 'target me' and asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to apologise to the nation for his 'misdeeds', saying only then he will tender apololgy for calling him 'coward and a psychopath'.
