PM admitted excise policy scam fake, claims Kejriwal

Saturday, 25 May 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has admitted that the alleged excise policy linked money laundering scam ‘is completely fake’ while the ED and CBI have no evidence of the scam.

The AAP chief made this disclosure citing the statement given by the Prime Minister in an interview on Thursday where he called him an ‘experienced thief’. He said, “In the interview, Prime Minister Modi admitted in front of the whole country that the liquor scam is fake, and no evidence has been found in it. He has said that no evidence was found because Kejriwal is ‘an experienced thief’.”

He asked whether ED and CBI officers are useless. “The truth is that Modi is making this an excuse that Kejriwal is an experienced thief to justify my wrong arrest. I appeal to the Prime Minister that when you have already admitted that the liquor scam is fake and there is no recovery, then release all the people arrested in this case,” he stated.

AAP Convenor said, “For the last two years, they have been making noise that there is a liquor scam in Delhi. They arrested me, Sanjay Singh, Manish Sisodia, and conducted more than 500 raids all over the country. Don't know how many more people they arrested. They say that we took a bribe of Rs 100 crores, and just a few days ago, they said that there is a scam of Rs 1100 crores. A big question arises that if there is a scam of Rs 100 crores or Rs 1100 crores, then the money must be kept somewhere. They conducted more than 500 raids; they did not find a single penny anywhere. We must have spent (that money) somewhere,” adding that they conducted so many raids but did not find any account of the expenditure.

Claiming that the PM Modi accepted that they have no evidence against him, Kejriwal said, “The Prime Minister said that the reason why no evidence was found, no recovery was made, no money was recovered is because Kejriwal is an experienced thief. So yesterday, the Prime Minister admitted in front of the whole country that he has no evidence in the liquor scam, he has no recovery in the liquor scam, not even a penny was recovered.”

“So, your entire CBI is useless, all your CBI officers are useless, all your ED officers are useless. That is just an excuse to justify his wrongful arrest that Kejriwal is an experienced thief. But yesterday the Prime Minister himself admitted in front of the whole country that he has no evidence, there is no recovery. Prime Minister, when you have already admitted that the entire liquor scam is fake, you have no evidence, there is no recovery, then release everyone,” reasoned Kejriwal.
