Congress President Rahul Gandhi on launched a scathing attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In a post on Twitter, Gandhi wrote in Hindi which roughly translates to, “In Delhi, a crime thriller by the name of ‘Chowkidar hi chor’ is being played. In its latest episode, the Central Bureau of Investigation’s DIG has put serious charges against a minister, NSA, law secretary and cabinet secretary. On the other hand, his partner from Gujarat is taking away crores of money. The officers are tired. Trust is broken. Democracy is crying.”
दिल्ली में ‘चौकीदार ही चोर’ नामक एक क्राइम थ्रिलर चल रहा है|
नए एपिसोड में CBI के DIG द्वारा एक मंत्री, NSA, कानून सचिव और कैबिनेट सचिव के खिलाफ गंभीर आरोप हैं।
वहीं गुजरात से लाया उसका साथी करोड़ों वसूली उठा रहा है|
अफ़सर थक गए हैं| भरोसे टूट गए हैं| लोकतंत्र रो रहा है| https://t.co/Tng5uu6m5q

On Monday, Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Manish Kumar Sinha, who was leading the team probing Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Director Rakesh Asthana’s case, moved Supreme Court against his transfer to Nagpur and pleaded a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into the case.
Sinha alleged that he was unjustly transferred to Nagpur in the wee hours of October 24 as his investigation was leading towards certain influential people. His application terms the transfer “arbitrary, motivated and malafide” and one that is made “solely with the purpose and intent to victimise the officer as the investigation revealed cogent evidence against certain powerful persons.”
Mr Gandhi has been relentlessly taunting Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this vein ever since the latter asked voters to appoint him as a chowkidar (or watchman) entrusted with protecting the national treasury at a public rally held in 2013. In September, the Congress president cited the example of fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya — who fled the country after borrowing thousands of crores from domestic banks — to dub Mr Modi as a “chowkidar who opens the country’s doors to let thieves in”. At an event held in Rajasthan a few days later, he criticised the Prime Minister’s silence on the Rafale deal and ended his speech with the line: “Gali gali mein shor hai, Hindustan ka chowkidar chor hai (This is the cry in every lane, India’s watchman is a thief)”.
