Manish Sisodia, the deputy chief minister of Delhi, claimed that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) conducted a raid at the residence of his personal assistant (PA). Furthermore, Manish Sisodia said, “They examined my bank lockers, conducted searches at my village using a false FIR, but found nothing .
In a tweet, Sisodia stated, “The Enforcement Directorate arrested my PA and took him away after conducting an ED raid at his residence, but did not find anything.

Furthermore, he wrote, “BJP people, so much fear of losing the elections?” However, the Bharatiya Janata Party slammed Manish Sisodia, stating that when he is the number one accused, why won’t the agencies take any action then? Moreover, BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia added, “BJP’s accusations were true because Arvind Kejriwal had to withdraw the excise policy after that!”
However, the Aam Aadmi Party claims that the BJP-led central government is trying to muzzle the its voice using the central agencies. On the other hand, including Manish Sisodia’s PA, the people close to him are also on the radar of Enforcement Directorate. Earlier, in August, Manish Sisodia’s residence was raided by the ED in liquor scam.
Till now, the Enforcement Directorate has conducted numerous raids in connection with the alleged scam in the excise policy of the Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi. Notably, in September, the ED nabbed Sameer Mahandru, managing director of a liquor company named Indospirit in connection with the alleged scam.
Though the Aam Aadmi Party links these raids with Gujarat assembly elections. The Aam Aadmi Party claims that the BJP is in a fear of losing the home state of prime minister Narendra Modi, the reason why the Central government has been misusing the ED and CBI. On the other hand, the BJP claims that it’s allegations are true as Arvind Kejriwal has repealed the liquor policy.
