AAP Leader Gopal Rai Accuses ED of Acting as BJP Worker, Not Independent Agency

Delhi Minister and AAP leader Gopal Rai accused the Enforcement Directorate (ED) of functioning as a “Bharatiya Janata Party worker” rather than an independent agency. Rai highlighted instances across India, including Delhi, suggesting biased behavior by the ED. He labeled the case related to the Excise Policy scam as fake, asserting that despite conducting raids for two years, no evidence has been found.

Summons to Arvind Kejriwal

On March 17, the Enforcement Directorate issued two fresh summons to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in connection with the liquor policy case and a case linked to the Delhi Jal Board. However, Kejriwal did not appear before the ED on Monday regarding the Delhi Jal Board money laundering probe.

ED’s Actions and Kejriwal’s Response

Kejriwal was issued summons under Section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act in the Delhi Jal Board case. This summons marked the ninth issued to him by the ED in the money laundering probe related to irregularities in the Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22 case. Previously, Kejriwal appeared before the Rouse Avenue Court on March 16, where he was granted bail after being accused of disobeying ED’s summons in the excise policy case.

Kejriwal’s Summons and Legal Proceedings

Despite multiple summons, Kejriwal has skipped previous ED summonses issued on various dates. The ED aims to record his statement regarding the formulation of policy, pre-finalization meetings, and allegations of bribery related to the Delhi excise policy. The case involves allegations of irregularities in the policy’s formation and implementation, leading to its withdrawal due to corruption allegations.

Current Status of the Case

Senior AAP leaders Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh are already under judicial custody in the case. Sisodia, the former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister, was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on February 26, while Singh, a Rajya Sabha member, was arrested by the ED on October 5. The case remains under scrutiny, with ongoing legal proceedings against the accused individuals.
