The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Sunday summoned Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia in an alleged corruption case of implementation of excise policy in Delhi. On this, Aam Aadmi Party claims that the BJP is working to stop the Aam Aadmi Party’s campaign in poll-bound Gujarat.
Delhi MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj said “The CBI’s summons has nothing to do with the excise policy; they will call Manish Sisodia to their office and arrest him. The CBI and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) have raided 500 locations across the country so far in the case. They haven’t found a single strand of proof. Just wait & watch. The more you (the BJP) arrest AAP leaders, the stronger the party will grow in Gujarat.”
“The BJP is rattled. The CBI will arrest Manish Sisodia tomorrow just to halt the month-long campaign he has scheduled in Gujarat. But I want to make it clear to the BJP – the AAP stands here in front of you unfazed by your tactics. You can break our bones but not our spirit,” Bharadwaj adds.
In a tweet on Sunday, Sisodia said: “CBI raid was conducted at my house for 14 hours, nothing came out. Searched my bank locker, nothing came out in it. They did not find anything in my village. Now they have called me to CBI Headquarters at 11 am tomorrow. I will go and give my full cooperation. Satyameva Jayate.”
