Centre never misused its authority to arm twist alliance: Minister

Rejecting allegation of abuse of CBI against coalition partners, the government on Wednesfay said it has never misused its authority to arm twist its alliance and the investigating agency has been functioning independently.

‘This has been a political issue raised by various political parties. In our government, we have never, never misused our authority or position for the purpose of arm twisting any of our alliances. The CBI has been functioning independently,’ minister of state for personnel V Narayanasamy told reporters here.

During the last nine years of UPA rule, it has been proved that the reputation of CBI is intact, the minister said.

The Supreme Court and High Courts order CBI inquiry on any matters. The state governments demand CBI inquiries on matters whether it is ruling government states or opposition ruled states, he said.

‘Therefore, the reputation and independent functioning of CBI is intact. For political consideration, they (political parties) would say,’ Narayanasamy, who is in-charge of the Ministry which acts as administrative department of the investigating agency.
