‘Agents ‘wasted time on dirty politics’: Arvind Kejriwal slams BJP amid ED raids in Delhi Excise policy case

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday, October 7, criticized BJP for misusing investigative agencies for harassing opposition political leaders, accusing them of ‘wasting the officers’ time in dirty politics’. Kejriwal’s response comes after ED launched new raids in connection with a money laundering investigation into alleged irregularities in Delhi’s excise tax policy.

“How will the country progress in this way,” Arvind Kejriwal wrote on Twitter after the ED conducted multiple searches on Friday in various locations in Delhi, Punjab and Andhra Pradesh.

Kejriwal also accused CBI and ED of conducting more than 500 raids involving more than 300 officers working day and night to find evidence against Deputy CM Manish Sisodia over the last three months.

Sisodia is one of the 15 accused named in the FIR filed against alleged corruption in the formulation and implementation of the Delhi Liquor Policy 2021-22.

“Over 500 raids, over the 3 months, over 300 ED/CBI agents work 24 hours to find evidence against Manish Sisodia. They couldn’t find anything because nothing was done. Many agents’ time is wasted on their dirty politics How will the country progress like this?” Kejriwal tweeted this morning.

In a new development linked to the excise policy scam in Delhi, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has raided 35 sites in three states – Delhi, Punjab and Andhra Pradesh. The raids started early Friday morning.

The money laundering case stems from a CBI FIR. The drink scheme came under scrutiny after the Delhi LG recommended a CBI investigation into alleged irregularities in the implementation of Delhi’s 2021-22 excise tax policy. He also had 11 excise officials suspended in the case.
