Arvind Kejriwal, the incumbent and official Chief Minister of Delhi, has been called in for questioning by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) regarding the Delhi Liquor Excise Policy Scam.
The chief minister was summoned by the probe agency on April 16.
In the meantime, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) gave an official statement which informed of the party will be holding a press conference today at 6:00 pm.
Party leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh stated on twitter “There will definitely be an end to tyranny. Arvind Kejriwal, I will hold a press conference at 6 pm in the matter of summoning by CBI.”
As the Election Commission of India recognized CM Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as a national party, Kejriwal declared that all AAP officials should be ready to serve jail time. Kejriwal’s response to the summons from the CBI is awaited, the Delhi chief minister remarked while at an event on Friday: “There are several anti-national forces in the county that do not want the country to progress. All these people sent Manish Sisodia to jail. Those who sent Sisodia to jail are the enemies of the country.”
After hours of investigation into the alleged scam involving the Delhi excise policy, which was discontinued after Delhi L-G VK Saxena recommended a CBI investigation into the alleged irregularities, Manish Sisodia was detained by the CBI on February 26.
