BJP on Sunday launched a scathing attack on the Aam Aadmi Party and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia by putting out ‘Lootera’ poster on various platforms of social media.
BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawala said: “Today the entire people of Delhi are saying the Aam Aadmi Party is a party of ‘lootera’. Therefore, our party today has put out only the sentiment of the people of Delhi. The BJP is not in any mood to give space to Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia.”
He further said: “This is a liquor motion production film directed by Arvind Kejriwal. It is a Maha Thug and Sukesh production film where the star cast involves Satyendra Jain, Manish Sisodia and all the others who have been looting Delhi in one after the other scam from ‘Sharaab Ghotala’ to ‘Tihar Ke Andar Ghotala’ to ‘Hawala Ghotala.’ And, therefore, this is a reflection of the sentiment of the people of Delhi.”
Raising the point of misuse of the position of Deputy CM and his office by Manish Sisodia, the BJP spokesperson said: “We have seen how Manish Sisodia tried to abuse his official position to suppress the liquor scam.”
“We have seen how inside Tihar, Satyendra Jain, still a minister, abuses official positions to extort money. We have seen how hundreds of crores were extorted, how expensive watches were given, and how international PR was being organised,” he said.
“And now Kejriwal, instead of taking action on the star cast of corruption and loot, instead of throwing them out of the Cabinet, is protecting corruption. Because he likes this film that has been running for eight years in Delhi from 2013 onwards and this film has many sequels,” Poonawala stated further.
Sisodia has been made the prime accused in an FIR registered by the CBI to probe alleged irregularities in the formulation and implementation of Delhi Excise Policy-2021-22.
The BJP’s allegations come at a time when the AAP started campaigning for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls.
