New Delhi: Alleging that Centre’s investigative agencies were misleading Supreme Court, AAP MP Sanjay Singh said the Opposition INDIA bloc would protest against it on Parliament premises on Monday.
The AAP functionary said that at a meeting held at Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge’s house on Saturday, the parties associated with INDIA bloc had unanimously decided to stage the protest in Parliament at 10.30 am.
He said that despite the trial court granting bail to CM Arvind Kejriwal, Enforcement Directorate immediately sought high court’s intervention and secured a stay on his release. “When CM Arvind Kejriwal seemed set to receive bail from Supreme Court, Modi govt got him arrested by Central Bureau of Investigation,” he said. Singh said this was “a blatant misuse of investigating agencies, and both ED and CBI lacked evidence against Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia”.
Addressing a press conference at party headquarters on Sunday, Singh claimed that the country’s investigative agencies had become “political weapons of the central govt”. He said: “When Manish Sisodia’s bail was being heard in Supreme Court, the court told ED that the investigation has been going on for one-and-a-half years, questioning how long will they keep a person in jail. There cannot be an endless investigation, SC had said.” He added: “Then, ED told Supreme Court that they would finish the trial in 6-8 months. Six months have passed, Manish Sisodia is still in jail. ED’s chargesheet has not been filed yet. The trial is far from starting,” he said.
Hitting back, Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva said the political desperation of AAP functionaries was increasing daily. “Whether it is AAP MPs, Delhi govt ministers, or MLAs and councillors, they are not concerned with public interest work but are worried only about CM Arvind Kejriwal, who is embroiled in corruption charges,” he alleged. Sachdeva asked if Kejriwal and other AAP functionaries in jail were innocent, why didn’t they get bail from any regular court. He claimed that Kejriwal government was “completely immersed” in corruption, and the cases that had surfaced were just “trailers”. Sachdeva added: “When the investigation into Delhi Jal Board and espionage scandal begins, the entire picture will be revealed.”
