New Delhi, September 16

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday alleged that the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate are "unnecessarily troubling everyone" and said the country could not progress like that.

Addressing a press conference, the chief minister said the Lieutenant Governor, the CBI and the BJP had quoted varying amounts of money involved in the alleged liquor scam but he didn't understand what it is really about.

His remarks came after the ED launched fresh raids at about 40 locations across the country as part of a money-laundering investigation into alleged irregularities in the now-scrapped Delhi Excise Policy.

"One of their (BJP) leaders says that it is a scam of Rs 8,000 crore, the L-G says it is a scam of Rs 144 crore and the CBI FIR says there is a scam of Rs 1 crore. I don't understand what the liquor scam is," Kejriwal said.

"The country cannot progress like this. They are unnecessarily troubling everyone," he said.
