The Aam Aadmi Party has claimed that so far 80 percent of its leaders have been arrested by the Delhi police. In addition, the question was asked whether someone can be detained for longer than 24 hours. AAP’s national spokesman Saurabh Bhardwaj said in a press conference that these are signs of distress. There are similarities between former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s Emergency era and the present.
He said that the Aam Aadmi party has repeatedly said since yesterday that not only Manish Sisodia ji has been arrested, but almost 80 percent of the party’s leadership have been arrested by the police. When asked, the national government says that they have only been detained.
Explain that the CBI had arrested Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday in connection with the alleged corruption in the canceled excise policy. While the police detained 50 people, including AAP MP Sanjay Singh and Minister Gopal Rai, who were protesting near the CBI office. At the same time, police say the leaders detained on Sunday will be released on Monday.
Saurabh said I want to know if the detention is one hour, two hours or three hours. Now it will be 24 hours, can the police keep such great leaders in custody for 24 hours? Such a provision is not included in the law. He called it “illegal” to detain someone for so long, and said the ringleaders should have been brought to court by now.
After Sisodia’s arrest, Saurabh wondered about the new development that led the agency to arrest him. He claimed that he read all the newspapers to understand if anything new was found against him (Sisodia). It was the same old story that the CBI has been telling since May last year.
Bhardwaj said former LG Anil Baijal, who approved and informed the liquor policy, should also be questioned. He questioned the need to arrest Sisodia and said that the CBI has all the files, but nothing against him has been found. Allegedly the central government is harassing you. He said the party would hold a peaceful protest against the developments outside BJP headquarters.
