The Aam Aadmi Party has been firing salvos at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley after the CBI raided the Delhi Secretariat. Docs seized from my office. No relation to allegations being probed. Responding to the BJP's demand of an apology over the un-parliamentary language used by Chief Minister Kejriwal for Prime Minister Modi, Vishwas said the language of the critics will improve if the ruling dispensation functions properly at the Centre. Sisodia alleged that parliament was taken for a ride by Jaitley. The 1989 batch IAS officer, who held several important positions under the previous Congress government, was appointed Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister in February when the AAP wrested power for the second term.
