AAP workers hold protests against Sisodia’s arrest


Aam Aadmi Party leaders and workers staged protests in various states against the arrest of party leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia by the CBI in connection with the liquor policy scam case.
The workers were seen sitting on the roads and chanting slogans, while some were wearing handcuffs against the BJP in the national capital. The workers were seen attempting to cross the barricades, and the police were seen pushing them back. The police asked the party workers to step inside the office. AAP workers protested outside the party office in the national capital and raised the slogan “Jail ke taale tutenge, Manish Sisodia chutenge”. AAP leaders protested by wearing handcuffs and chanting slogans.
AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj said that they have come to give their arrest to the government as the agency has arrested Manish Sisodia in a false case.
“The Centre wants to arrest every leader, MLA and Minister of the AAP. So we’ve come to inform PM Modi that we’ve arrived to hand over our arrest.We’ve all come to make our arrest.End our party and put us all in jail. The world should know that there is a dictatorship in India and the situation of Emergency is prevailing,” AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj said while speaking to a news agency.
AAP workers also held protests in Odisha’s Bhubaneswar and raised slogans against the BJP government at the Centre. The party workers also demonstrated in Karnataka’s Bengaluru. They were detained by the police. Taking on Manish Sisodia, Union Minister Meenakashi Lekhi said that the AAP should not use freedom fighter Bhagat Singh’s name to “hide sins”.
“Don’t use Bhagat Singh’s name to hide your sins.
They (AAP) formed the government in the name of honesty, but they have proven to be the most dishonest.”Children in Delhi have suffered because of this government and earlier governments,” she said.
The AAP workers also protested in Chandigarh.
