New Delhi: Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday alleged that the CBI and the anti corruption branch (ACB) have started random picking of files from the Delhi Jal Board (DJB), of which he is the minister-in-charge, to “somehow frame him in something”.

In a series of tweets, Mr Kejriwal announced that he will put out in public domain the list of all files sought by the CBI and the ACB, and asked them to either explain the reason or else “apologise to Delhiites for this witch hunting exercise”.

In September last year, Mr Kejriwal had taken charge of water — the first portfolio taken by him after he became the chief minister in 2015. Mr Kejriwal heads DJB . “CBI n ACB started randomly picking files from DJB. No specific enquiry. Becoz now I am Min-in-charge, their effort is somehow frame me in something (sic). “PM, L-G n BJP – If u hv specific info, pl investigate. But don’t victimise Delhi’s people by paralysing all depts of Del govt (sic),” Mr Kejriwal tweeted.

In another tweet, he said that he has sought time to meet lieutenant-governor Anil Baijal on Monday to discuss important matters of the Delhi government.
