"The allegation against me is against the Cabinet; it was the decision of the Cabinet, not a personal decision or my own decision and it (allegation) is baseless," Moily told reporters in Bangalore on the sidelines of International Bamboo Conclave and Expo- 2014.
     
"Poor chap Kejriwal, he doesn't realise, he doesn't understand basic fundamental laws,” he said.
     
Hitting out at Kejriwal for his policies and measures like subsidy on electricity as Delhi Chief Minister, Moily said, "Kejriwal is upto fooling everybody and even fooling the democracy."
     
"He thinks that he is the only brainy fellow. I think all of us should pledge our brains with Kejriwal, this is the kind of a person he is. I don't know how people elect such people," he said.
    
On reports about former Oil minister Murli Deora, whose name also appears in the FIR, deciding to write to Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung challenging the Delhi government's jurisdiction in filing a police complaint, he said, "Let us see, we are examining it; Prime Minister is already seized of the matter. I don't want to make any comment."
    
Commenting on Rahul Gandhi’s hint at enacting all six pending anti-graft bills through the ordinance route, Moily said, "That is the pressure and the demand of the people; Congress party, particularly UPA, and more so, Rahul Gandhi is very anxious about all these anti-corruption bills."
     
"Lokpal itself will not make a meaning, unless the content of some of the subjects particularly the fight against corruption is also taken care- that will be addressed by whistleblower and other bills which are already pending," Moily said.

"Parliament should have given priority to that but the opposition is not interested in these bills - they are interested only in politicalization," he added.
     
Stating that the Union Cabinet has cleared the project on green mission three days ago, Moily, who is also the in-charge of Environment and Forest Ministry, said, "It is about increasing the forest cover; 50 million hectares will be added in 10 years time."
