Many CBI officers opposed the arrest of Manish Sisodia… because of political pressure…: Kejriwal
In a letter to AAP leader and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, “It is unfortunate that I have been accused of corruption despite my honest work for eight years. I, my God, know that all these accusations are false. Actually these allegations are nothing but a conspiracy of cowards and weaklings. I am not their target, you (Kejriwal) are their target. Because today people of not only Delhi but all over the country see you as a visionary leader for the country. You have the ability to bring about big changes in people’s lives.”
Kejriwal sent the names of Atishi and Saurabh to the Delhi Cabinet..!
Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, Delhi ministers Manish Sisodia and Satyender Jain resigned from their posts in the state cabinet on Tuesday. Their resignation was accepted by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. They will be sent to Delhi LG VK Saxena. The development comes two days after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested Manish Sisodia in the Delhi Excise Policy case.
Manish Sisodia was arrested by the CBI on Sunday on charges of irregularities in the formulation and implementation of the Delhi government’s excise policy. The next day, Delhi’s Roose Avenue court remanded him for five days. But the Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to hear a plea filed by Manish Sisodia challenging his arrest in the excise policy case. A bench headed by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud said the court was not inclined to entertain the petition at this stage and directed Sisodia to approach the Delhi High Court.
