Talking to reporters outside Parliament, Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) Jitender Singh pointedly asked Kejriwal to name the CBI officer who gave him this information and accused him of attempting to place another intelligence body over the CBI.

"When he says that a certain officer from the CBI comes and shares the information with him, is this what is expected from a chief minister?" he asked.

"Secondly, a CBI officer or any other intelligence officer is not expected to share his responsibilities. A certain amount of confidentiality is expected. So, who is this officer, he (Kejriwal) should name him," Singh added.

Singh further reiterated that the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) and the government doesn't interfere in the working of the CBI.

"If Kejriwal and if someone like that is trying to imagine, then he is possibly going through 'hallucination', possibly trying to live in the times of the Congress when the Congress possibly indulged in this kind of interference, but certainly not this government," he added.
