The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) questioned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on April 16 as a witness in the case related to the alleged irregularities in the excise policy of 2021-22.
The policy, which was scrapped later, aimed to privatise liquor vends and increase revenue from alcohol sales. Kejriwal’s former deputy Manish Sisodia is already in jail in the same case.
Kejriwal alleged that the CBI, ED, Income Tax and police were harassing him on the orders of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who wanted to prove that he was corrupt by any means.
He said that this was a political conspiracy by the BJP, which was afraid of AAP’s popularity.
Kejriwal, who inaugurated 80 ‘Aam Aadmi Clinics’ in Punjab on Friday, challenged Modi to prove his corruption charges.
He said that if Modi could find any evidence of graft against him, he was ready to face public execution. He also asked Modi to stop the daily drama and focus on governance.
