'Sisodia is mastermind of Delhi excise policy scam', says BJP leader

New Delhi, Apr 2 (IANS): The Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over the excise policy case and said that former deputy CM Manish Sisodia was the "mastermind of the alleged scam".

Addressing a press conference here, BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla said, "Why did the court refuse to give relief to Manish Sisodia, the accused in the liquor scam? Manish Sisodia and company have received a bribe of Rs 100 crore and this has been verified through the court."

"The court said that while reviewing the evidence presented, it can be said that Manish Sisodia is not honest but the mastermind of this corruption policy," Poonawalla added.

On Friday, a Delhi court, while dismissing the bail plea of Sisodia in the excise policy case lodged by the CBI, said prima facie the AAP leader "is the architect of the criminal conspiracy in the matter".

Special Judge M.K. Nagpal said Sisodia's release may adversely impact the ongoing investigation and "seriously hamper" its progress.

    Sisodia is in your custody and police are still investigating and grilling him. Has he admitted to your baseless charges against him in your custodial interrogation and torture him to give custodial statement agreeing to your fake charges so that you can build a false case against him???…..You will keep in your custody till he gives in but you are wrong and don’t make any false statements without proof for media publicity.

    Honourable Manish Sisodia is an educated visionery with bonafide degree certificates. He is the architect of Delhi education system, which is known as the best in India. He needs to be given the highest award for his achievements. Only Congress and AAP can make India a better place to live. We want to see honourable Rahul Gandhi or honourable Kejriwaal to be our next prime minister. We need educated people to be ruling us. We need peaceful India, a Ram rajya.
