CBI Raid Manish Sisodia’s House

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raided the house of deputy chief minister of Delhi- Manish Sisodia, who is getting full support of Arvind Kejriwal.

CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted that the same day on which the Delhi Education Model pioneered by Manish Sisodia was praised with his picture on the front page of NY Times, the CBI raided his house. He further said that the CBI would get full support and cooperation in doing its duty and will not be stopped in any manner.

Manish Sisodia’s home was searched by the CBI in relation to the controversy around the excise policy. Additionally, searches are being done at 20 other places within the National Capital Region.

Manish Sisodia has since tweeted to deny all accusations and to pledge his cooperation in the probe. Sisodia criticised the harassment of performers throughout the nation, calling it regrettable.

On the excise policy of Delhi, Delhi will return to the previous excise system on September 1 for a period of six months. Following a significant uproar over its new alcohol law, the AAP government in the nation’s capital opted to reinstate the previous excise policy, which forbade private companies from operating in the market.

On August 31, nine months after it was put into place, the excise policy that now governs how the city’s private liquor vends are operated comes to an end. Only Delhi government entities will be permitted to operate retail liquor stores as of September 1.

The new strategy had fundamentally altered how alcohol was sold in the nation’s capital, with the government leaving the retail market and turning everything over to private companies. Additionally, it introduced one-for-one deals, refunds, and discounts on alcoholic beverages.
