ANI Photo | “Sanjay Singh is not the last”: BJP hints at more AAP arrests

Bharatiya Janata Party MP Parvesh Sahib Singh said on Thursday that arrested Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh is not the last AAP leader to be sent to Tihar as the investigation into the Delhi Liquor Policy case progresses.
“One after another, big leaders from the Aam Aadmi Party are being taken to Tihar Jail. We think Aam Aadmi Party will open its office in Tihar Jail. Because Sanjay Singh is not the last. More leaders are involved in this liquor policy scheme and ED (Enforcement Directorate) has substantial evidence,” Parvesh Sahib Singh said speaking at a press conference in Delhi.
The BJP MP further added that Sanjay Singh used to meet accused-turned-approver Dinesh Arora and Amit Arora at his own residence and introduced them to Arvind Kejriwal at the latter’s place.
“According to the investigation by ED – Sanjay Singh used to meet Dinesh Arora and Amit Arora at his own residence. The Sanjay Singh used to take all these liquor mafias to Arvind Kejriwal’s place,” Singh said.
“They also said that they had paid Rs three crore to Sanjay Singh, Rs two crore was given by Amit Arora and one crore by Indospirit company,” he added.
Speaking about Manish Sisodia whose bail plea was heard by the top court on Thursday said, “Their Deputy CM Manish Sisodia is also in jail in the liquor policy irregularities case. His bail plea was being heard and the court will pronounce its order next week. If they have not done anything wrong then why isn’t the court granting them bail?”
On the AAP staging a protest against Sanjay Singh’s arrest, the BJP MP said, “I want to ask Arvind Kejriwal if he trusts the Judiciary. If you trust the Judiciary why is AAP staging a protest? If you haven’t done anything wrong, then you should trust the Judiciary.”
The BJP also claimed that the AAP is playing the ‘victim’ card since elections are around the corner.
“Since the elections are coming and you are part of the opposition, do not play the victim card…You need to present your case before the court. You cannot play the victim card then,” Singh said.
In a friendly advice to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, he said, “Accept your crimes so that your punishment can be reduced.”
BJP leader Shehzad Poonawalla who was in the joint press conference said that the AAP continues to play the victim card on similar occasions and their acronym has now become ‘Aur Adhik Paap’
“AAP does not mean ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ but ‘Aur Adhik Paap’…Whenever such arrests are made a tape recorder keeps playing, saying that vendetta politics is being played, not a rupee has been found,” Poonawalla said.
Poonawalla also added that it has been found in the court records that money was transferred in the liquor policy case.
“Manish Sisodia has not got any relief…He is the principal architect in the Liquor Policy scam. The court has given its finding that money was transferred,” he said.
Speaking on the company which had allegedly transferred Rupees one crore to Sanjay Singh, the BJP leader said, “Indospirits is that company which was blacklisted earlier. This shows quid pro quo.”
AAP leader Sanjay Singh was arrested by the ED in a money laundering case linked to the Delhi liquor policy ‘scam’ on Wednesday. Singh is the third prominent leader of the AAP, after Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain, to be arrested by a central agency
