The Congress party has turned the heat on Prime Minister Narendra Modi ever since the war in the CBI has become public. The Party  claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is responsible for “dismantling, denigrating and destroying” India’s premier investigative agency and accused him of direct interference in the functioning of the CBI.

Randeep Surjewala, Congress Communication in- charge, said the prime minister’s role in the entire matter is “under a cloud” and the country is looking for a fair, impartial and independent investigation of serious charges of corruption involving senior-most officers of the CBI and the RAW. There was no immediate reaction from the PMO on the allegations.

Surjewala said the matter needs to be investigated and brought out as to who in the current political dispensation is involved in this entire saga and is attempting to shield the accused involved in the matter?

“Instead, the prime minister is illegally and unconstitutionally interfering in the investigation,” he alleged.
“Why did the prime minister call the head of CBI, also head of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) to his residence yesterday? Was it to influence the ongoing corruption investigation against CBI and RAW officers?

“What instructions did the prime minister give to the chiefs of CBI and RAW? Does it not tantamount to illegal and unconstitutional interference by the PM in an ongoing corruption investigation involving high ranking officers of the two agencies,” he asked at a press conference.

“Modi govt buries the ‘last nail’ into the independence of CBI. Systematic dismantling & denigrating of CBI is now complete. Once a premier investigating agency, PM ensures that CBI’s integrity, credibility & reliability is buried & dead,” Surjewala said on Twitter.

“PM Modi has demonstrated the true colour of his infamous Modi Made Gujarat Model’ by this cloak-and-dagger mugging of CBI. Has the CBI Director been sacked for his keenness to probe the layers of corruption in Rafale Scam? Isn’t the rest a shoddy cover up? Let PM answer!” the Congress leader said.

Attacking the prime minister, he said Modi has sought to achieve surreptitiously and clandestinely what he cannot do directly by sacking the CBI director.

Habitual and perpetual misuse of the CBI by the government and the BJP to “tamper fair investigation of serious criminal cases” is the reason for this unfathomable mess, Surjewala alleged.
