BJP’s Massive Protest Against Arvind Kejriwal Over Delhi Liquor Policy Case: Watch

New Delhi: Delhi BJP workers on Saturday protested outside the AAP office against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the alleged liquor scam. This comes after the BJP on Friday attacked Delhi Chief Minister for questioning the Enforcement Directorate’s supplementary charge sheet in the excise scam case and said it proved that he was involved in corruption.

The new Delhi liquor policy was withdrawn last year by the AAP government after a CBI probe was recommended into alleged corruption in its implementation.

The court on Thursday took cognisance of the supplementary charge sheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) against five individuals and seven companies in connection with alleged irregularities in the excise policy case.

Addressing a press conference on Friday, senior BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi attacked CM Arvind Kejriwal for alleging that the cases filed by the agency were “fake” and aimed to “topple” governments or form them.

“Anyone trying to question the ED is trying to question the apex court. The judiciary has upheld that ED’s job is to mitigate corruption in the country. The way the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is questioning the ED, it is becoming clear that Arvind Kejriwal is with those who increase corruption. Kejriwal does not want corruption to end from the country,” she remarked, as quoted by news agency PTI.

She alleged that the ED chargesheet makes it clear that the “AAP has an alliance with unregulated businesses”.

“ED has proved through investigation that the AAP was indulging in corruption under the guise of liquor policy. Along with this, the agency also revealed that Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia were also involved in this,” she said.

A part of the alleged Rs 100 crore “kickbacks” generated in the scrapped Delhi excise policy was used in the AAP campaign in the 2022 Goa assembly election, the ED claimed in its second charge sheet in the case in which Sisodia is an accused.
