CBI is a weapon of political vendetta : Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi. Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the internal feud within the country’s premier investigative agency, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), and described it as institution that “is at war with itself”.
The CBI was now in a state of “terminal decline and has become a weapon of political vendetta” under PM Modi’s watch, he said as reported by PTI.
“The PM’s blue-eyed boy, Gujarat cadre officer, of Godra SIT fame, infiltrated as No. 2 into the CBI, has now been caught taking bribes. Under this PM, the CBI is a weapon of political vendetta. An institution in terminal decline that’s at war with itself,” said Congress President Gandhi on Twitter.
Apart from two private individuals, the CBI has named Deputy Superintendent of Police Devender Kumar and Asthana in a bribery case related to an ongoing investigation against meat exporter Moin Qureshi and others.
