Delhi Liquor Scam: CM Kejriwal reacts after his name surfaced in second charge sheet
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation have accused individuals of committing irregularities while altering Delhi's liquor policy with the involvement of kickbacks from the liquor industry. In the second chargesheet filed by ED in the Delhi liquor scam, 17 individuals were named, including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
When asked about the chargesheet, Kejriwal dismissed it as "complete fiction" and accused the ED of being politically motivated to "topple governments and buy and sell MLAs".
The chargesheet alleges that the AAP used funds from the liquor scam for its election campaign in Goa and that cash payments of Rs 70 lakh were made to volunteers of the survey teams. The ED also claims that the 'South Group' was comprised of individuals from the ruling parties of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and a representative from Aurobindo Pharma.
