Maybe Within 3-4 Days, CBI-ED Will Arrest Me: Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia

Mumbai: Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia on Saturday said that CBI-ED might arrest him within the next three-four days. He said that the liquor issue or the excise policy was just an excuse to target him since he was a minister under Delhi Chief Minister Arwind Kejriwal.

Sisodia alleged that the raids against him were purely political and had nothing to do with the alleged violation of Delhi’s excise policy.

“Maybe in the next 3-4 days CBI-ED will arrest me… we won’t be scared, you won’t be able to break us… Elections of 2024 will be AAP vs BJP,” Sisodia said while addressing a press conference in the national capital today.

“Their issue is not liquor/excise scam. Their problem is Arvind Kejriwal… whole proceedings against me, raids at my residence and office, are to stop Arvind Kejriwal… I haven’t done any corruption. I’m just Arvind Kejriwal’s Education Minister,” he said.

Describing Delhi’s excise policy as the best policy, Sisodia said, “The excise policy that created the entire controversy is the best policy of the country. We were applying it with transparency and sincerity. Had Delhi LG not changed his decision conspiring to fail the policy, Delhi government would’ve been getting at least Rs 10,000 cr every year.”

Sisodia is among 15 people against whom the CBI has registered an FIR. In this case, a case has been registered against some unknown public servants and private persons including excise officials, liquor company officials, and dealers.

The FIR states that “the facts in the case prima facie disclose the commission of the offences” against the accused punishable under sections 120-B, 477A IPC and section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988.
