Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has accused the BJP of attempting to sabotage his government’s work in the health and education sectors through the arrest of his deputy Manish Sisodia. The liquor scam, he declared, “is an excuse” and if Manish Sisodia joins the BJP, “he would be free by tomorrow”.
“Corruption is not the issue. The motive was to stop the good work done by the ministers,” Kejriwal said in his first interaction with the media since Sisodia’s arrest.
“The BJP wants to stop AAP. Ever since we won Punjab, they can’t stand us,” Mr Kejriwal said.
Since Sisodia’s arrest, AAP has been flagging a conspiracy theory, alleging that BJP has unleashed the Central agencies on their leaders to trash his achievements and undo the work by the Delhi government.
