The report on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was good to read (“Kejriwal says document raid was meant to intimidate Delhi government”, Gulf News, December 16). A recent raid by India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) at the house of Kejriwal’s secretary, among other places, is the latest development in Indian politics. The CBI has raided 14 places, and legally, it is valid. But the reaction by Opposition parties was unnecessary. Comments made by Kejriwal provoked the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and they exchanged heated words. Whatever the reasons from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Kejriwal should mind his tongue before raining ire on Narendra Modi, a man who was elected by the people of India, and not just at the state level. In politics, anger, frustration, and vendettas should be controlled. Ultimately, power plays are easy to see.
