ED Cases: Manish Sisodia claims BJP offered to close CBI, ED cases against him if he splits AAP and joins them – Blue Barrows

Delhi’s deupty chief minister Manish Sisodia made a sensational claim on Twitter saying that the BJP asked him to split the party and in return offered to close all the cases registered by the CBI and ED.

“Got a message from BJP – Split AAP and join BJP and in return we will close all CBI, ED cases. My reply to BJP was that I am a descendant of Maharana Pratap and a Rajput. I will not bow down before the corrupt and conspirators. All the cases registered against me are false. Do whatever you want to do,” the tweet in Hindi read.

Sisodia is facing probe from the CBI in the Delhi liquor scam case. He alleged that the CBI had issued a Look Out Circular against him. However, the CBI clarified that LOC has been issued against 8 persons in the case and there was no clarity on Sisodia’s name.

The CBI has made Sisodia as accused number one in its FIR, which charges the accused under Sections 120-B (Criminal Conspiracy) and 477-A (Falsification of accounts) of the IPC.

The allegations against Sisodia is that liquor businessmen were allegedly given exemption of Rs 30 crore, and licence holders were allegedly given extensions, according to their own will, while the policy was made by violating excise rules.
