AAP seeks CBI investigation after BJP releases two sting videos claiming corruption in Delhi's excise policy

The father of one of the suspects listed in the FIR for the Delhi Excise Policy Scam was heard complaining that the government had announced that “L1 licence will only be given to those who can show a sale of Rs 150 crores, which means 90% of the contenders were already out of the game” in the first sting video.

Adesh Gupta, the head of the BJP’s Delhi unit, released two sting films on Thursday to launch a scathing attack on the city’s AAP government over the excise scheme that has since been scrapped. BJP unveiled two sting tapes during the press conference, alleging corruption in the distribution of contracts for liquor licences.

Manish Sisodia, an AAP politician and former head of the excise department, responded to the BJP’s accusations by calling for a CBI investigation to ascertain the veracity of the sting tapes and issuing a “open challenge to arrest me if I am wrong.”

The father of one of the suspects listed in the FIR for the Delhi Excise Policy Scam was heard complaining that the government had announced that “L1 licence will only be given to those who can show a sale of Rs 150 crores, which means 90% of the contenders were already out of the game” in the first sting video.

“@ArvindKejriwal, despite your many lies, you were unable to conceal the truth, and as a result, the AAP’s liquor fraud is now in the open. No accusations of liquor fraud. In this video, the father of 13 describes how a fraud was carried out and how money was divided. The way things were said in the sting makes it obvious. The Kejriwal administration has a single policy that calls for carrying out all corrupt rituals “The video was posted by the BJP leader.

Another suspect in the excise policy fraud, Amit Arora, was shown in the second sting tape made public by the BJP. He claimed that the “government fixed commission for licences and used the money in elections in Goa and Punjab.”
“The Aam Aadmi Party’s scam campaign has come to light. Amit Arora, the ninth suspect in that scam, revealed the results of the complete vote. Whose money was stolen, and how much? Everything about scams has been revealed. Only the scam was planned for throughout the entire policy “Sudhanshu Trivedi, a BJP politician, stated.

“Minimum fees of up to Rs 5 crore apiece have been established. To prevent small-time players from attending, 5 crore was retained. Whereas the foundation of this programme is that even small business owners have access to employment, “BJP made additional accusations at the press conference.

The BJP also pointed out that the sting films are in the public domain and requested that Delhi’s chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, publicly apologise for the excise policy fraud.
