Congress demands Manish Sisodia’s resignation over excise policy row

New Delhi,21/8:The Congress Sunday demanded the resignation of Delhi Excise Minister Manish Sisodia in the light of CBI raids against him, saying the issue at hand was the liquor policy and the ruling Aam Aadmi Party should stop “hiding behind” the education policy debate.


The Congress also alleged the BJP’s complicity in the matter, claiming a blacklisted Madhya Pradesh company which was allotted liquor vends in Delhi was a “major donor” to the BJP, which had “admitted to such donations” in its disclosures to the Election Commission.


“The company in question has not been mentioned in the CBI FIR on the issue. We want to know why?” asked Delhi Congress President Anil Choudhary, demanding the resignation of both Sisodia and his cabinet colleague Satyendra Jain, who has been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate.
