Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of misusing the probe agencies, Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), as tools to suppress the AAP-led Delhi government’s progress.

Kejriwal alleged that the central agencies are interfering with the functioning of the AAP government and tarnishing the party’s reputation with baseless accusations, AAP said in a statement.

Kejriwal alleged that the fake news being spread by BJP against Manish Sisodia, he said that Sisodia owns two flats valued at 5 and 65 lakhs, respectively, and has a modest bank balance of only 11 lakhs.

He asserted that these properties were purchased before the formation of the excise policy.

He emphasised that the AAP leader’s assets are fully disclosed in their income tax filings and

election declarations, the statement said.

Kejriwal claimed that as per ED papers, one flat was purchased by Manish Sisodia in 2004-05, valued at 5 lakh rupees, while the second flat was acquired in 2018 for 65 lakh rupees. Additionally, he has 11 lakh rupees in his bank account.

“These properties and the alleged liquor case are completely unrelated,” he claimed.
