Manish Sisodia, the deputy chief minister of Delhi, was detained by the Central Bureau of Investigation in relation to alleged corruption in the city’s now-retracted liquor policy. The central organisation had been questioning him since the morning. For the Aam Aadmi Party, the arrest is not a surprise because Sisodia raised concern about it today. Arvind Kejriwal, the leader of the AAP and the chief minister of Delhi, concurred, assuring Sisodia that the party will look after his family.
I don’t care if I have to stay in jail for a few months. I am a follower of Bhagat Singh who was hanged for the country. It is a small thing to go to jail because of such false allegations, Sisodia tweeted at 8.52am on Sunday — before going to the CBI office. “Going to CBI again today will cooperate fully in the entire investigation. The love of lakhs of children and the blessings of crores of countrymen are with us. Many senior AAP officials and their close friends have been under investigation by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the CBI since since the Delhi Excise Policy 2021–22 of the AAP was withdrawn on July 31, 2022.The Delhi government opted to reinstate the “old excise system” that was in place prior to November 17, 2020 after abandoning the new strategy. The central investigation agencies have conducted numerous searches at various locations across the country, including the home of the deputy CM, who hasn’t been named as an accused by the CBI. Following the AAP’s action, Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena recommended a CBI investigation into the alleged violations of the rules and procedural flaws in the implementation of the excise policy. Over the alleged scandal, the AAP and the BJP have also been at odds.
