The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has called for a nation-wide protest on Monday against Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia’s arrest in the now-scrapped excise policy 2021-22. Meanwhile, Delhi Police also issued an alert amid AAP’s protest call.
Sisodia was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with the alleged irregularities in the excise policy 2021-22. Before his arrest, he was questioned by the probe agency for around eight hours. Calling it ‘dirty politics’, Delhi CM and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal said there is a lot of ‘anger’ among people and they will ‘respond’ to this.
Before heading to the CBI office on Sunday, Sisodia said, “Going to CBI again today will cooperate fully in the entire investigation. The love of lakhs of children and the blessings of crores of countrymen are with us. I don’t care if I have to stay in jail for a few months. I am a follower of Bhagat Singh who was hanged for the country. It is a small thing to go to jail because of such false allegations.”

Taking to Twitter, Pathak on Sunday said, “The great Education Minister Manish Sisodia, who has shaped the future of lakhs of children of the country, has been arrested in a fake case. Against this, the Aam Aadmi Party will protest across the country tomorrow.”
The party will stage protests at the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Headquarters at the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg in the national capital at around 12 pm om Monday. It is believed that the party will also hold protests in Gujarat’s Gandhinagar, Haryana’s Rohtak, Noida, etc.
Sisodia was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) after an eight-hour questioning session related to the now-scrapped excise policy case. The Delhi Deputy CM had earlier claimed that false cases were being lodged against AAP leaders because Prime Minister Narendra Modi was afraid of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s rising popularity.
“Conspiracies are being hatched by the CBI and ED and false cases being lodged against our party leaders because PM Narendra Modi is afraid of CM Arvind Kejriwal’s rising popularity. As AAP grows further, BJP will continue to slap false cases on us. We are not afraid of the CBI, ED and their false cases,” Sisodia said, claiming that people were starting to regard the AAP as an alternative to the BJP.
