On Saturday, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Supremo Arvind Kejriwal made a massive statement, saying Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia would denounce a top Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader. . This development comes days after the arrest of Satyander Jain by the Law Enforcement Directorate.
In a tweet, Kejriwal said: “The central government itself said in court that Satyendar Jain is not an ‘accused’. How did you become corrupt when there is no accused Manish Sisodia ji will reveal a great BJP leader today. He will tell the country what is the real corruption and how are the great corrupt people.”
Earlier, the AAP supremo backed Jain and said he himself had seen the documents of the cases filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), while calling the case of “false and fabricated”.
ED arrests Delhi home minister
He further added that the leader of the AAP was arrested as part of a political vendetta. “They filed many complaints against me too… conducted raids but nothing came out because in the end it is always the truth alone that triumphs. I am confident that Satyendar Jain will soon be relieved as well,” Kejriwal said. .
Jain was arrested by the Directorate of Law Enforcement (ED) on Monday in a money laundering case, based on the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) disproportionate assets case. He was sent to ED custody until June 9 by a Delhi court which said his questioning was necessary to uncover the alleged larger plot.
According to the AML Agency, Jain owned and controlled businesses received accommodation entries worth Rs 4.81 crore from shell companies against cash transferred to entry operators based in Kolkata. In addition, these funds would have been used for the direct purchase of land or for the repayment of loans taken out for the purchase of agricultural land in and around the national capital.
Meanwhile, more than half a dozen portfolios attributed to Satyendar Jain have been assigned to Manish Sisodia, according to an official notification.
Delhi CM claims ‘center to arrest Sisodia’
On Thursday, Arvind Kejriwal predicted that the Center would arrest Sisodia in a bogus case. The Delhi CM had claimed to have received this information through reliable sources who had also informed him of the possibility of Jain’s arrest beforehand. Stating that Sisodia made the nation proud of his work in the education section, he argued that it was a ploy to stop the good work that was happening in Delhi.
