In response to the BJP’s “sting operation over liquor policy,” which was made public on Monday, the BJP demanded an apology from Arvind Kejriwal. The “sting video,” according to Manish Sisodia, is a joke
Following the release of two “sting videos” this week that targeted the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leadership, the Bharatiya Janata Party announced on Thursday that it would request the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to investigate both Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister, and his deputy, Manish Sisodia.
Sudhanshu Trivedi, a BJP leader, also brought up Kejriwal’s request for citizens to document instances of corruption when he first took office.
How a character develops throughout time… After such strong evidence, Kejriwal is cynically delaying the issue today. At a news conference with party leader Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, the BJP Rajya Sabha member stated, “He must either take action on it or apologise for his comments made seven years ago.
The BJP claimed on Monday that two recordings depicting the father of one of the defendants in the CBI’s first information report (FIR) in the case involving the Delhi liquor excise policy showed Kejriwal and Sisodia received “hundreds of crores” in commission from the since-cancelled policy. Sisodia denied the accusation, claiming that the “sting footage” the BJP was using was a joke.
Since then, the BJP has made an effort to draw attention to the “sting film.” Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, a BJP MLA and the head of the opposition in the legislature, organised a demonstration outside Sisodia’s home on Tuesday.
At the press conference on Thursday, Trivedi also criticised the AAP government for calling a special assembly meeting to take a trust vote. He claimed that the party’s credibility rather than the AAP’s confidence in the assembly posed the greatest threat.
According to Bidhuri, the AAP administration went against its own policy of allowing the opening of just 849 liquor vendor shops by awarding 1,000 liquor licences to owners of banquet halls, bars in hotels, and restaurants. He asserted that “they have also granted authority to operate dance clubs against the backdrop of running liquor vendor shops.”
