MPs and MLAs from the Delhi BJP, along with other party leaders, held a prayer meeting at Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial Rajghat on Thursday for the ‘liberation’ of people from the “corrupt” AAP government in the city.
Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva said the struggle for liberation of the people from the “corrupt” Arvind Kejriwal government will continue. He alleged Kejriwal was the “kingpin” of the alleged liquor scam in Delhi.
Mahatma Gandhi used to say alcohol destroys both the body and the soul, Sachdeva said. “Kejriwal has not only destroyed the soul but also the entire Aam Aadmi Party,” he said, hitting out at the AAP National Convener and the Delhi Chief Minister.
The BJP has been attacking the Kejriwal government since the Wednesday arrest of AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh by the Enforcement Directorate in a Delhi excise policy-related case.
Meanwhile, the AAP on Thursday accused the Centre of trying to silence its MP Sanjay Singh by arresting him and challenged the BJP-led Union government to make public any evidence they have against him.
Singh was arrested on Wednesday by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with its money laundering probe linked to the 2021–22 Delhi Excise Policy Case.
Addressing a press conference here, senior AAP leader Atishi claimed that over 500 officers of the ED and CBI conducted raids at several places linked to the AAP leaders in the last 15 months but ‘haven’t found a single piece of evidence’ against them.
