AAP says CBI summon won’t stop Kejriwal’s fight against corruption

IndiaAAP says CBI summon won't stop Kejriwal's fight against corruption

CBI summon won’t stop Kejriwal’s fight against corruption and the senior leader said Kejriwal will appear before CBI on April 16.

The AAP on Friday alleged that the CBI summoned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as he spoke about the Adani issue and asserted that such notices will not deter their fight against corruption.

Addressing a press conference, AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh said the CBI summons was a conspiracy to arrest CM Kejriwal.

The CBI has summoned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in connection with the excise policy scam case on April 16, officials said on Friday.

Kejriwal has been asked to be present at the agency headquarters at 11 AM to answer queries of the investigating team, they said.

“Delhi chief minister had spoken about the Adani issue in Delhi Vidhan Sabha. That same day, I told him that you will be next. Narendra Modi-led Centre is corrupt from head to toe and Kejriwal’s fight against corruption won’t stop due to such notices,” Singh said.

The senior leader said Kejriwal will appear before CBI on April 16.

Roshan Rai, a supporter tweeted, “Modi may just have unleashed this Kejriwal and it will prove to be the biggest mistake of his political career.

To all those rejoicing at #CBI’s summon to Arvind Kejriwal, Time is a very powerful leveller.

@ArvindKejriwal
, With you, Always.

“This notice is a conspiracy to arrest CM Kejriwal. This notice will neither be able to silence the AAP nor Kejriwal,” he said.

The central probe agency has already arrested former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia in connection with the case.  It is alleged that the Delhi government’s excise policy for 2021-22 to grant licenses to liquor traders favored certain dealers who had allegedly paid bribes for it, a charge strongly refuted by the AAP. The policy was later scrapped.

Searches were executed across 20 locations in NCR.  CBI official informed news agency ANI that four public servants, including Manish Sisodia, have been named in the FIR.

Manish Sisodia had earlier renounced all allegations saying that he will cooperate with the investigation. Sisodia said it was unfortunate that those who perform in the country are harassed like this.
