CBI took care of the family
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that CBI was ordered from above to raid us. I want to thank them for not causing any inconvenience to my family. Sisodia said a day after the CBI raids at his residence that Delhi's excise policy was implemented with complete transparency, no scam took place. These people are not worried about scams. The concern of these people is Arvind Kejriwal, who is loved by the public and who has emerged as an alternative at the national level.
2024 Lok Sabha Elections 'AAP' Vs BJP
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia further said that he wants to stop Arvind Kejriwal, whose work in education and health sector is being discussed all over the world. Satyendra Jain is already in jail, I too will be arrested in two-three days. There is a conspiracy to stop work in the education and health sector. He said that the 2024 Lok Sabha elections will be a contest of 'AAP' vs BJP, Modi vs Kejriwal.
The protesters marched from the Delhi Congress office to the AAP headquarters on DDU Marg and raised slogans against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Sisodia. Congress' state unit's media department vice-president Parvez Alam said the Congress has demanded that Kejriwal sack Sisodia from his cabinet, as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has named him in an FIR registered in the excise policy 'scam'.
Significantly, the CBI on Friday searched Sisodia's residence for several hours in connection with the alleged irregularities in the implementation of the Excise Policy 2021-22. The investigating agency has named him along with 15 others in an FIR.
