After Elections, they have cars, bungalows and all luxuries.#ManishSisodia went to jail. But other corrupt leaders of AAP are still roaming free.#ManishSisodiaArrested #ModiFearsKejriwal #AAPExposed pic.twitter.com/Zs5YF4nlhw

Since the news caught the attention of the local people, the Aam Aadmi Party and Mr. Sisodia deny the allegations, accusing the governing BJP of playing these kinds of dirty politics. This is a sensitive matter for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which emerged over 10 years ago from the movement against corruption. Still, most of the individuals are trying to know more details about this incident and how did it happen with Mr. Sisodia. Are the allegations correct? We have to find more information related to the arrest of the politician.
He was questioned by the agency for more than eight hours before his arrest was officially confirmed by the agencies. He had a connection with the alleged corruption in the formulation and implementation of the now-scrapped liquor policy for 2021-2022 in Delhi. The Liquor Policy was launched on the basis of an expert committee report and was executed by the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi from November 17, 2021 Under the new policy, almost 849 liquor vends were awarded to private companies through open bidding.
Why did Manish Sisodia get Arrested?
At that time, Delhi city was divided into 32 zones, and each zone had a maximum of 27 vends Instead of individual licenses, bidding was done zone-by-zone. Due to the new policy, the city government marked the exit from the liquor business and was also launched in a bid to increase government revenues, better customer occurrence, and close the liquor mafia’s influence and black marketing.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) claimed that the arrest was due to political rivalry and it was a fake case. The party said,” He gave evasive replies and did not cooperate with the investigation despite being confronted with evidence to the contrary, therefore, he has been arrested”. Since the arrest was made, it has created a lot of anger among people. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted,” People are watching everything. People will respond to this”.
