New Delhi, Aug 19 : Independent MP and former Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Friday expressed his support for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the wake of CBI raids targeting his deputy Manish Sisodia, pointing out that the incident proved that the Aam Aadmi Party leader was “on the rising”. “Sisodia was raided by CBI
“CBI , ED – the long arms of Government
“Now Kejriwal’s on the rise, Kejriwal is
“Time for BJP to destabilise
“So you should target Satyendra Jain now Sidodia (sic),” he declared in an tweet.
Sibal’s former group appeared to be apathetically supporting the raids.
“The negative side of the constant abuse of agencies in the face of political rivals is that legitimate, legitimate actions of agencies are under the shadow of suspicion.
The corrupt are able to get away with the’misuse of the agency’s resources, while the honest pay the cost,” said Congress leader Pawan Khera who served as advisor to the late Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, who had three consecutive terms in the office.
Former East Delhi MP Sandeep Dikshit claimed that the AAP and BJP were working in gloves to harm the Congress, “but it seems that the BJP doesn’t require AAP to be a party, so the raids are conducted”.
Sisodia on Friday described the current Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raid on his house in the context with the suspected violations in the Delhi excise policy as “unfortunate” and added that “those doing good work for the country are being targeted”.
