On Friday, the Central Bureau of Investigation searched 21 locations, including the residence of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. His connection with its probe into alleged irregularities in the Delhi Excise Policy. Reacting to it, Sisodia, in-charge of the department, said that the central agency was welcome to do so.
We welcome CBI and will give full cooperation in the investigation so that the truth can come out soon. He claimed that till then, many cases have been filed against him, but nothing has come out. He is confident enough that nothing will come out of it either. He also mentioned that his work for good education in the country cannot be stopped. Sisodia said. “It is very unfortunate that those who do good work in our country are harassed like this. That is why our country has not yet become No 1.”
Coincidentally, the CBI searches were conducted on the same day, when the New York Times published a frontpage report in its international edition on the AAP government’s “overhaul of public schools in the capital of India”.
CM of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwa also welcomed the CBI searches and said the party would fully cooperate. He said,“On a day when the Delhi education model is praised and Manish Sisodia’s picture is printed on the front page of America’s largest newspaper, NYT, the Centre sends CBI to his house.”
