Kejriwal annoyed over his name in DCW hullabaloo
After Anti Corruption Branch (ACB) booked Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for including his name in the FIR. 
 
Kejriwal told media that he doesn’t know why his name has been mentioned in the FIR. He accused Modi by saying further that without the Prime Minister's approval; a Chief Minister's name doesn't come in an FIR. 
 
Kejriwal asked him for telling his role in the whole issue. He further said that his role is not mentioned in the FIR.
 
The controversy sparked when former DCW chief and Congress leader Barkha Singh Shukla filed a FIR against Swati Maliwal regarding irregular recruitment and illegalities in the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW).
 
Kejriwal said a special session of the Delhi assembly would be called to discuss the issue.
