India Trending JP Nadda

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader & Minister Atishi on Saturday addressed a press conference slamming the Modi Government on the arrest of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. Arvind Kejriwal was sent to 6-day ED remand by the Rouse Avenue Court on Friday night in the alleged liquor policy case. ED's crackdown in the alleged liquor policy scam case intensified after the central agency arrested K Kavitha, daughter of former Telangana CM KCR. ED accused Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal of being the kingpin of liquor policy case and accused him of receiving kickbacks from the 'South block'. Now, Atishi on Saturday lambasted the Central government and dared the ED to arrest BJP's National Chief JP Nadda under the same case. Below is what Atishi said- 


"In the so-called excise policy scam of Delhi, CBI and ED investigations have been going on for the past two years. In these two years, a question has come up again and again - Where is the money trail? Where did the money go?...No proceeds of crime were recovered from any leader, minister or worker of AAP...Arvind Kejriwal was arrested in the same case two days back on the basis of the statement of just one person - Sharat Chandra Reddy. He is the owner of Aurobindo Pharma...He was summoned on 9th November 2022 for questioning. He clearly said that he never met or spoke with Arvind Kejriwal and has nothing to do with AAP."


Atishi further said, "As soon as he said that, he was arrested the next day by the ED. After being in jail for several months, he changed his statement. He said that he met Arvind Kejriwal and spoke with him over the excise policy matter. He was granted bail as soon as he said that. But where is the money? Where is the money trail?"


Atishi showcased the recently released Electoral Bonds and said that Reddy, who is part of the so-called 'South Group' donated Rs 55 crore to the BJP via the now-scrapped political funding method. The AAP challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Enforcement Directorate to ‘arrest’ BJP chief J P Nadda in the case as the “money trail can be tracked to BJP’s bank accounts”.


"He (Sharat Chandra Reddy) gave electoral bonds worth Rs 4.5 crore to BJP. And then also gave bonds worth Rs 55 crores. Where is the money trail? Money trail money was found in the BJP’s account. I challenge Prime Minister Narendra and ED, to arrest BJP national President JP Nadda,” Atishi said.
