Senior Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia has demanded a CBI probe into the Delhi excise scam and said that Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has framed the new excise policy of Punjab, due to which the state exchequer has lost hundreds of crores of rupees. The damage is done.
In a press conference called at the party headquarters on Monday, Majithia alleged that ‘the makers and directors of the Punjab Excise Policy are from Delhi only. The role of senior CBI officials and Aam Aadmi Party leaders, who colluded to give huge benefits to liquor makers like Deep Malhotra at the cost of the state exchequer, needs to be probed. He said that a separate Enforcement Directorate inquiry should also be conducted to investigate the claims of money laundering.
Majithia alleged that there was rampant corruption in the Punjab excise policy that’s why like in the case of Delhi, the entire liquor business was handed over to two companies and their profit margin was doubled so that AAP could also benefit. “Hundreds of crores of rupees have been given to the AAP government in Punjab and the AAP high command in Delhi, this is illegal money obtained from liquor and sand mining mafia, which is being used by AAP to fulfill Arvind Kejriwal’s national level election dreams,” he said. is being taken. He said that this is the reason why the Delhi Chief Minister had publicly said that the policy which was not allowed in Delhi was causing ‘miracles’ in Punjab.
