Use of Rs 45 crore collected in elections

So far 6 chargesheets have been filed in the Delhi liquor scam case. In its sixth chargesheet, the ED had named AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh and his aide Sarvesh Mishra. The agency had claimed that AAP had used Rs 45 crore collected under this policy in the Goa Assembly elections.

BJP attacked Kejriwal

Here, BJP attacked CM Kejriwal and said that the court has not imposed any stay on the action of ED and from this it has become clear that Kejriwal is prima facie an accused in the Delhi liquor scam case. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra further said that the Aam Aadmi Party should not consider the bail as a relief. Now CM Arvind Kejriwal is also out on bail, he has joined the league of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi.
