BJP targets Kejriwal again, claims corruption exposed | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: BJP on Sunday reiterated its allegation that chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was the “kingpin” of the “excise policy scam” and that “handcuffs are getting closer to him as nodes of corruption are being unravelled”.
“Roots of the excise policy scam lead to the doorstep of Kejriwal. No one is above the law and no corrupt person will be spared,” BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia said at a press conference.
Delhi BJP president Adesh Gupta, who also addressed the press conference, said: “Delhi’s excise policy has proved to be a corrupt one. Arvind Kejriwal is the kingpin of this entire scam.” Bhatia said the AAP should tell within 24 hours why it withdrew the new excise policy if there was no corruption in the matter.
He claimed that the AAP’s “corruption” was a bigger guarantee than that of the ISI mark. The health ministers of the AAP governments in Delhi and Punjab were in jail on charges of corruption, Bhatia said.
“When the second wave of Covid pandemic arrived, the BJP, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, ensured supply of medicines and improved healthcare infrastructure. Kejriwal should have paid attention to the need for medicines, beds and oxygen at that time, but his corrupt pen was busy signing the excise policy,” Bhatia alleged.
On AAP’s claim that the 2024 Lok Sabha elections will be a direct fight between Kejriwal and Modi, the BJP spokesperson said: “Everyone knows what happened in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa polls. The public will give the AAP a befitting reply.”
The Delhi BJP chief said it had happened for the first time in Independent India that the education minister of a state was also the “minister of liquor”. The excise policy was a policy of sins, corruption and atrocities, he said.
