Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday asked Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi to “expose” Prime Minister Narendra Modi if he has documents at his disposal, saying Congress and BJP indulge in such “friendly match” but do not make any disclosure.

“If Rahul Gandhi actually has papers on Modiji’s personal involvement in corruption, then why doesn’t he expose it outside Parliament?

The chief minister was reacting to Rahul’s remarks that he wants to present in the Lok Sabha detailed information about “personal corruption” by Modi but is not being allowed to do so by the PM.

On demonetisation, Kejriwal claimed the traders were miffed with BJP.

“The traders of the country are saying BJP will take money from us, vote from us and call us thieves? The real thief dines with the PM,” he tweeted.

AAP leader Ashish Khetan tweeted, “If Rahul Gandhi is not allowed to speak inside the House, then he should speak outside and disclose the information he has about Modiji.”

However, parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar rejected Rahul’s allegation terming it “false and baseless” and “very unfortunate”.

“The allegation was made out of desperation and he (Gandhi) should apologise to the nation,” Kumar told reporters.
