Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for scanning 400 files of the Delhi government to find irregularities and also claimed to show four files of the Centre, including those of Sahara-Birla and Rafale.

Addressing the National Council Meeting of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), A.Kejriwal also said through repeated examinations and scanning, PM Modi gave the AAP government in Delhi a certificate of honesty.

"The Centre took and examined our 400 files to find irregularities, but could not find any. PM Modi himself gave us a certificate of honesty. I always say if PM Modi shows us four of his files, he will end up landing in jail," Mr Kejriwal said.

"You took our 400 files, show us Sahara-Birla and Rafale files and we can send you to jail with just these two files," he challenged Modi.

He said that the BJP in the past four years has not left any stone unturned to ensure that the AAP government could not perform.

"I don't see anywhere in the country or in the world that a Chief Minister elected by the people could not even transfer a peon working under him. The Centre holds the power to transfer the officers but we have been asked to make them work. The public has voted for us, but powers are with the Centre."
