Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday criticized that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has shared the names of 15 people with Delhi Police, CBI and enforcement directorate and asked them to ''conduct raids and file fake FIRs'' against those on the list and ''ruin them before the next elections''. During an online briefing, Sisodia claimed that many names on the list are from the Aam Aadmi Party.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal sounded similar sentiments and said nothing had come out of the earlier raids or fake cases. In a tweet in Hindi, Kejriwal said, ''We have learnt from reliable sources that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has handed over a list of 15 people to the CBI, the ED and the Delhi Police, asking them to conduct raids and file fake FIRs against them (people on the list) in order to ruin them before the next elections,'' ''Do politics of votes and win the trust of people. There were so many fake cases filed against us and raids conducted but you got nothing. You want to file more fake cases and carry out raids? You are welcome.'' Sisodia claimed.
Sisodia said there had been previous instances where AAP leaders were 'targeted' but nothing came out of it. He claimed that Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana has promised to get the job done. He also said, the AAP does politics of truth and honesty.
