Congress leader Alka Lamba slams AAP, welcomes CBI raid

NEW DELHI: As the CBI raided the residence of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday in connection with the excise policy probe, Congress leader Alka Lamba said that her party welcomes the CBI raid.

The Congress leader took Twitter and shared a video where she targeted AAP and Arvind Kejriwal.

"If their policy was right, why they had they started the prior one by Sheila Dixit when she was CM of Delhi? AAP always criticises her tenure and now they are following her policies," said Lamba.

She further alleged that the party knows about the corruption and that is why they did not protest against Satyendra Jain's custody.

"If you are so honest, why Satyendra Jain, the Health Minister of Delhi is in custody for the last two months and no AAP worker and not even Arvind Kejriwal came out on the road against his custody," she said.

Lamba claimed that AAP promoted liquor consumption in the national capital.

"You have spoilt the future of Delhi students with your policies. You (AAP) were promoting the consumption of liquor by giving them an offer and you (AAP) say that you are building the future of Delhi. You have been unmasked and now face the consequences," she added.

Today, officials of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrived at the residence of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia as part of the investigative agency's raids at 21 places across Delhi and the National Capital Region.

The raids are being conducted in seven states of the country in connection with the CBI's investigation into the alleged irregularities in the formulation and execution of the Delhi excise policy brought in November 2021. The CBI has registered an FIR in this connection.
