New Delhi: Targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his name being included in a First Information Report or FIR in connection with the alleged tanker scam, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday "welcomed" the FIR and said he was "glad" that the PM has accepted that "his fight is directly with" the Aam Aadmi Party leader.

On Twitter, Mr Kejriwal claimed that the Modi government has been targeting him instead of registering FIRs against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son-in-law Robert Vadra, and asserted that he is not afraid of the "CBI and ACB of Modi".

"Modiji, you did not register FIR against (Robert) Vadra, did not register FIR against Sonia, did not register FIR in any cases, citing which you became the PM. All the investigating agencies under you - CBI, police, ACB. You have asked them to go after me. You conducted CBI raid on me. Got nothing. Now, welcome your FIR... I am glad that you have admitted that your fight is directly with me," he said in a series of tweets.
   

Mr Kejriwal's comments come after a case was registered on Monday by Delhi's Anti-Corruption Branch in connection with the alleged Rs 400-crore water tanker scam linking former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.

ACB chief MK Meena said two complaints were received with regard to the scam and those named in the complaints include Ms Dikshit and Mr Kejriwal. He said both Ms Dikshit and Mr Kejriwal will be questioned.
