Union I&B and Sports Minister, Anurag Singh Thakur slammed Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia the day after CBI carried out a raid at Sisodia’s residence in connection with alleged violations of the now withdrawn Delhi Excise Policy of the AAP-led Delhi government.

The Union Minister said that Manish Sisodia may have changed his name to “money shh” accusing him of being good at taking money and staying quiet over it.

Thakur challenged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to respond to his questions within 24 hours.

“Manish Ji, if your liquor policy was right, why did you take it back? It’s like ‘chor ki daadhi mei tinka’, why is there a soft corner for liquor businessmen?  I challenge Arvind Kejriwal to come in front of the nation and answer me within 24 hours,” Union Minister Anurag Thakur said while addressing a press conference in the national capital.

The Union Minister alleged that Manish Sisodia may be the accused of the alleged liquor scam, but Arvind Kejriwal was the mastermind.

“No. 1 accused of liquor scam is Manish Sisodia (Delhi Dy CM and AAP leader) but the kingpin is Arvind Kejriwal (Delhi CM). Today’s press conference clearly showed how the colour on his face was gone after his scam. He couldn’t even answer any questions,” he added.

Anurag Thakur made these statements after Sisodia earlier today that he may be arrested soon and as the liquor issues or the excise policy was just an excuse to target him.

“Maybe within the next 3-4 days, CBI-ED will arrest me, we won’t be scared and you won’t be able to break us. Elections of 2024 will be AAP vs BJP,” said Sisodia 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 added.
