17 October 2022 (New Delhi): The controversy over the liquor policy of the Kejriwal government in Delhi does not seem to stop. CBI, which is investigating this case, has summoned Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia and asked him to be questioned at 11 o’clock today. However, the Aam Aadmi Party has claimed that the CBI has called to arrest Sisodia. Manish Sisodia reached the Aam Aadmi Party office before leaving for the CBI headquarters. From here, he reached Rajghat with AAP leaders. Here he paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi. Sisodia said earlier that their preparations were to arrest me. Nothing was found in the investigation. He described the whole matter as a fake and said “They were putting me in jail so that I could not go to Gujarat. “The Deputy CM of Delhi said that the condition of the schools in Gujarat is dire. The youths are unemployed.

He said that the BJP is losing in the Gujarat elections, so they will put me in jail. Manish Sisodia said that the common man is fighting the Gujarat elections. Earlier, Manish Sisodia left for the CBI office by applying tilak from home, eating sweets and smiling. Sanjay Singh, the Aam Aadmi Party’s Rajya Sabha MP, also reached Manish Sisodia’s residence. On the other hand, in view of the possibility of uproar, tight security arrangements have been made near the CBI headquarters. Not only this, there is no gathering around Manish Sisodia’s house, as Section 144 has been imposed.

The police have put up barricades on both the roads leading to the CBI headquarters. A large number of police personnel have been deployed here. Paramilitary personnel are also being deployed.
