Modi’s handpicked CBI officer now ‘Caught Red Handed’, tweets Sitaram Yechury

CBI

New Delhi | Responding to the ongoing controversy related to the arrest and exchange of allegation between CBI’s top officials, CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury taking a swipe at PM Modi said that the official patronised by BJP and handpicked by Modi is now been caught redhanded.

Taking on Twitter Yechury wrote, “The official patronised by BJP and handpicked by Modi, was pushed into our premier investigation agency despite opposition to his entry only to subvert ongoing investigations and stop all cases against BJP leaders. He has now been caught red-handed.”

Questioning the BJP for favoring CBI special director Rakesh Asthana in his carrier, Yechury asked,” Who patronised this official in his career? Who handpicked him for CBI despite strong opposition by the Director? If this official is now caught “fabricating” documents & taking bribes, should his political patrons in BJP not be asked tough questions too? What is their role?”

The CPI(M) general secretary further alleged that number of ‘compromised officials with dubious records’ have been inducted in top agencies just to target the political opposition. ” CBI is particularly under the spotlight should not surprise us. After all, it was the agency investigating the BJP party president for a very serious charge. No prizes for guessing how and why his name was “cleared” under a dark cloud,” he added.

Sitaram Yechury also claimed that the role of top BJP leadership in damaging and destroying the country’s institutions is unparalleled in India’s history. He further added that this is needed to further RSS’s unconstitutional agenda. Their nefarious designs have to be, and will be defeated.

The Central Beaureu of Investigation (CBI) has filed a complaint against its special director Rakesh Asthana for allegedly taking bribes to provide relief to businessman being investigated by him in a case involving meat exporter Moin Qureshi.
