'ED raid at Arvind Kejriwal's PA and treasurer ND Gupta's residence to stop explosive exposé': Atishi
ED is conducting searches at nearly 10 locations including the residence of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's PA among others connected to the AAP as part of its money laundering probe.-
Another major political turmoil is in the making as the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday morning raided AAP MP & treasurer ND Gupta and Arvind Kejriwal's PA in Delhi. As per reports, ED started raiding at Delhi CM Kejriwal's PA's residence and ND Gupta at around 7 am in the morning on Tuesday. Reports further suggested that ED is conducting searches at nearly 10 locations including the residence of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's personal secretary among others connected to the Aam Aadmi Party as part of its money laundering probe. As a result, AAP leader Atishi addressed a press conference and alleged that the fresh ED raid is an attempt to mute the 'explosive expose' that she had promised to do on Monday.
Addressing the press conference, Atishi said, "Yesterday, I had said that I will be doing an 'explosive exposé' on ED at 10 am today. To stop this exposé and scare the AAP, ED has been conducting raids since 7 am in the morning against AAP leaders and workers. Raids are underway at the residences of our leader ND Gupta and the PA of CM Arvind Kejriwal. There are reports that the ED will conduct raids throughout the day against AAP leaders. The BJP-led central government is trying to scare the AAP using the probe agencies."
"For the last 2 years, AAP leaders are being threatened. In the name of this so-called liquor scam, someone's house is raided, someone gets summons and someone is arrested...Even after hundreds of raids in two years, ED has not been able to recover even a single rupee. Even after two years, ED has not found any concrete evidence and the court has also repeatedly asked that evidence should be presented," added Atishi.
