Delhi excise policy: ED summons AAP leader Durgesh Pathak


The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday summoned senior Aam Adami Party (AAP) leader and Rajinder Nagar MLA Durgesh Pathak in the Delhi excise policy case.
Taking to Twitter, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said, “What does our MCD incharge have to do with the Delhi govt’s liquor policy? Is their target liquor policy or MCD elections? “ Notably, Pathak is the party’s in-charge of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls.
Notably, the central agencies are probing the Delhi excise policy case on the recommendation of Governor VK Saxena, following which the CBI raided Manish Sisodia’s house earlier in August.
Saxena had claimed that Sisodia also extended financial favours to the liquor licenses much after the tenders had been awarded and thus caused huge losses to the exchequer.
Sisodia was among 15 others booked in an FIR filed by the CBI.
