Sisodia slams center as CBI continues AAP crackdown
As the CBI began questioning the defendant in the Delhi excise policy ‘corruption’ case in which he was named, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday claimed it was a ploy of the BJP who ‘fears’ Arvind Kejriwal and the 2024 Lok Sabha polls to be a battle between the leader of the AAP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The BJP hit back, alleging that Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal was the ‘kingpin’ of the ‘alcohol scam’ and that the Aam Aadmi party was trying to distract from its corruption by linking the action of the CBI to politics. He claimed that Modi will improve his tally in the next general election like he did in 2019.
A day after the CBI raid on him, Sisodia at a press conference expressed concern that the agency or ED could arrest him in the next 3-4 days and alleged that it was part of the “scenario to stop Kejriwal that has emerged as a national alternative” to Modi.
