An Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) delegation led by Lok Sabha MP Raghav Chadha lodged a complaint against the BJP with the Election Commission India (ECI) for allegedly running a campaign of calumny against party’s convenor Arvind Kejriwal on social media.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) in its third supplementary charge sheet in the Delhi excise policy scam has mentioned the names of AAP leaders, Sanjay Singh and Raghav Chadha.
Both leaders are Rajya Sabha members. The charge sheet only mentions their names, they are not shown as accused in the case.
The supplementary charge sheet was recently filed before the Rouse Avenue District Court here.
According to the charge sheet, Chadha was part of a meeting which was held at former Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s residence in connection with the liquor policy case.
Sources said that the ED was recording the statement of an accused businessman Dinesh Arora, who later became an approver in the Delhi liquor policy, when the names cropped up.
“He initially met Sanjay Singh through whom he came in contact with Manish Sisodia during a party in his own restaurant, namely Unplugged Courtyard. On request of Sanjay Singh, he spoke to many of the restaurant owners and arranged cheques amounting to Rs 82 lakh (handed over to Sisodia) for collection of party funds for the then upcoming Assembly elections in Delhi,” the ED has mentioned quoting Dinesh Arora.
