“CBI is doing its work, there is no need to be scared. We should let CBI do its work, they have an order from the top to harass us. Obstacles will come but work won’t stop,” said Kejriwal.

“Today Manish Sisodia was declared the best Education Minister in the world but a CBI team reached his residence to conduct a raid. So, there’ll be a lot of obstacles. It wasn’t easy to appear on the front page of New York Times and bring an education revolution in Delhi,” said the Delhi Chief Minister.

He said that this wasn’t the first time AAP leaders were being raided and false cases being lodged against them.

“In the last seven years, several raids were conducted on Manish Sisodia. Several false cases were lodged against him. Raids were conducted on me as well, on Satyendar Jain, on Kailash Gehlot but nothing was found. They won’t get anything even now,” he added.

Talking about the mission Make India No 1, he issued a number 9510001000 asking citizens to send a missed call to join the mission to make India No. 1 in the world.

“I am issuing a number today, missed call number 9510001000. Those who want to join this mission, those who want to see India as the number 1 nation in the world, the most powerful nation. the best nation should join this mission,” Kejriwal said.

Meanwhile, the police detained AAP workers who gathered outside Sisodia’s residence where CBI raids are underway.

“They’re announcing that they’ve imposed Section 144 here. Nobody raised slogans or misbehaved, we don’t know what do they fear. The more they stop us, the bigger we’ll grow,” said a party worker.
