New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia should be awarded the Bharat Ratna for his role in improving government schools in the national capital. Hitting out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raids against the Delhi Deputy CM, Kejriwal alleged that Sisodia and even he could be arrested as action against him in Gujarat Because of the election.
“He (Manish Sisodia) reformed government schools, which other parties could not do in 70 years. Such a person should get Bharat Ratna. The entire country’s education system should be handed over to him, but instead, he CBI raids on them.” Kejriwal said in Gujarat. He and Sisodia are on a two-day tour of the western state ahead of the assembly elections in Gujarat later this year.
Sisodia claims, BJP contacted me to join him Sisodia claimed that he received a ‘message’ claiming that all cases against him would be dropped if he joined the BJP. “My reply to the BJP is – I am a descendant of Maharana Pratap, a Rajput. Do whatever you want to do. I am ready to behead but can never bow before conspirators and corrupt people. All cases against me are liars.
Last week, the CBI raided Sisodia and several other functionaries in connection with alleged irregularities in the implementation of the Delhi Excise Policy. Kejriwal had alleged that the raids were being conducted at a time when Sisodia’s work was being discussed across the world. He had insisted that the day the New York Times took note of Sisodia’s work, “BJP sent the CBI to his residence”.
