New Delhi, June 21:

A day after he was booked in the water tankers scam along with his predecessor Sheila Dikshit, Delhi Chief Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi wanted to scare him through such actions.

He said the FIR was registered on Modi’s direction and that he was not afraid of any probe by a central agency.

“Modi-ji has intimidated everyone else through false complaints and probes. He wants to scare me as well. So, he got the FIR registered against me,” Kejriwal told the media here.

He, however, did not take any questions from the media.

“The fact is that I am the only one who stands like a rock against Modi. He cannot tolerate this,” Kejriwal said, adding that he is not Congress President Sonia Gandhi or its Vice-President Rahul Gandhi who can be scared by the Prime Minister.

“Respected Narendra Damodar Das Modi, get as many FIR registered against me (as you can), I will keep raising my voice. You will find me struggling over issues of the farmers and Dalits,” the AAP leader said.

The Anti-Corruption Branch registered the case on Monday against the Aam Aadmi Party leader and Dikshit, a former Congress Chief Minister. (IANS)
