After Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat got some huge positive response, Arvind Kejriwal had started his own interactive capaign called TalkToAk. Mr Kejriwal’s interaction was live streamed on the website www.talktoak.com. The programme had generated huge interest, AAP leaders had said.
But now the campaign seems to be bringing yet another trouble for Delhi government as the CBI on Wednesday registered a preliminary enquiry (PE) against Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and some unnamed state government officials to probe alleged irregularities in the “Talk to AK” campaign.
“We have filed a PE against Sisodia and other unknown government officials, as there are allegations of improprieties and violation of extent rules and regulations in award of work pertaining to media campaign ‘Talk to AK’,” a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) official said.
Sisodia seemed miffed over this and tweeted :
स्वागत है मोदी जी! आइए मैदान में। कल सुबह आपकी सीबीआई का अपने घर और दफ्तर में इंतज़ार करूँगा। देखते हैं कितना ज़ोर है आपके बाजुए कातिल में। https://t.co/EZmXUR9p9c

Arvind Kejriwal also tweeted accusing Modi of targeting him and his party members.
So far, 19 legislators of Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party have been arrested in various cases since the party swept the assembly elections in Delhi in February 2015. Mr Kejriwal has repeatedly accused the Centre of gunning for his party lawmakers and “sending Delhiites to jail under false cases”.
ऐसा लगता है मोदी जी बिलकुल पगला गए हैं। देश के PM को बस एक यही काम रह गया है। हाथ धोकर पीछे पड़ गए हैं। https://t.co/FOy9sGr3R2
