The Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was in all praises for his deputy, Manish Sisodia, and opined that the government should accord him Bharat Ratna. Soon after, BJP National General Secretary BL Santosh taunted the Aam Aadmi Party National Convenor for making the statement. Santosh said that Kejriwal’s upcoming demand could be a Nobel Prize for himself, following his request for the highest civilian award for Sisodia.
Taking to Twitter, BL Santhosh deemed the AAP as anarchic and wrote, “Padma Vibhushan ‘ for Satyendra Jain … Bharath Ratna for Manish Sisodia …. Next Noble Prize for himself ….. Great going anarchist party”

BL Santosh tweeted this following Arvind Kejriwal’s appreciation of his education minister, Manish Sisodia. Kejriwal also requested the Prime Minister to recognise him for his educational model in the capital.
Arvind Kejriwal claimed that the BJP-led Centre has been harassing Sisodia with CBI raids regarding the liquor policy scam. Rather than this, he said the government must acknowledge his contributions to Delhi’s educational system.
“Does BJP have any shame? The person who should be given Bharat Ratna. The person (Manish Sisodia) who should be handed over the education system of the whole country. The PM should call them and understand the education model, instead of getting CBI raids on him. The whole society is angry about this raid. Will this benefit the country?,” the Delhi Chief Minister shared on Twitter.
In addition, the AAP leader called the CBI raids futile, coupled with BJP’s ulterior motive to dismantle the AAP-led regime in Delhi. He also noted that the searches at Sisodia’s residence and allegations came ahead of Gujarat polls.
Further, BJP’s IT cell head Amit Malviya and National Spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla blamed the duo- Kejriwal and Sisodiya- for not answering questions related to the liquor scam. Subsequently, Poonawalla presented a string of questions, referring to them as ‘unanswered.’
Shortly after Sisodia claimed the BJP had offered to drop all corruption allegations against him and destroy the AAP, there was a vicious attack on the AAP ministers.
