New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) ) on Sunday arrested Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in connection with the alleged Delhi liquor excise case, after eight hours of questioning.
Shortly before arriving at the CBI office for questioning, the deputy Chief minister said false cases are being lodged against leaders of the ruling party as Prime Minister Narendra Modi was “afraid” of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
“Conspiracies are being hatched by the CBI and ED and false cases are being lodged against our party leaders because PM Narendra Modi is afraid of CM Arvind Kejriwal’s rising popularity. As AAP grows further, BJP will continue to slap false cases on us. We are not afraid of the CBI, ED, and their false cases,” Sisodia said, claiming that people were starting to regard the AAP as an alternative to the BJP.
He said that the PM, while not afraid of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, feared the AAP.
“Everyone says that only AAP will rid the country of the BJP in the future. Modi-ji may not be scared of Rahul Gandhi but if there’s one party that he is scared of, it is the AAP. They will put me in jail, but we are not afraid. We will fight. Kejriwal is the only future leader of this country,” Sisodia said, addressing supporters at Raj Ghat.
He further appealed to Arvind Kejriwal to “keep fighting” for the welfare of the people. “I want to tell Kejriwal-ji, please continue with what are you doing. Keep fighting for the welfare of the people,” Sisodia said.
