The CBI has started a preliminary investigation into alleged irregularities, including violation of tender rules, in the construction of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s new house in Civil Lines area of ​​the city. The inquiry has been registered against “unknown public servants” of the Delhi government.

If a prima facie case emerges from the preliminary inquiry, the agency will register a police case.

The Central Bureau of Investigation has written to the Delhi government’s public works department seeking “certified copies” of documents related to the construction of the chief minister’s new house.

The documents sought include PWD officers’ recommendations, or approval of additions or alterations to the chief minister’s residence, and records of bids submitted by construction firms.

The agency has also asked for documents related to approval of building plans from relevant authorities and “a request from the client to carry out high specification work, including modular kitchens, marble floors, high-end wooden cupboards, interior artistic work…”

PWD has also been asked to provide details of payments made to the contractor.

Mr Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party has accused the BJP of “using all its might to destroy you…”

“So far BJP has filed more than 50 cases against Kejriwal.Yes… Nothing has come out of them and nothing will come out of it. No matter how much the BJP investigates, Arvind Kejriwal will continue to fight for the interests of the common man. Kejriwal has vowed to make India No.1 in the world and he is ready to pay any price for it,” a defiant AAP said in its statement.
