In an oblique jibe then, Kejriwal said that instead of arresting his ministers and MLAs one at a time, the Centre should put all of them behind bars together and carry out as many raids and investigations as it wishes to.
“I request PM Modi to put all the ministers and MLAs from AAP behind the bars and ask all the central agencies to do all investigations at a go. Do as many raids as you want. You arrest one minister at a time, it obstructs public works,” Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said.
