NEW DELHI: The Congress on Saturday launched a scathing attack on the Aam Aadmi Party- led Delhi Government over the alleged excise policy “scam” and demanded that either Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia should resign or he should be removed.

Calling for a thorough investigation into the “excise policy scam”, Congress general secretary Ajay Maken  said “Kejriwal ji, in his earlier avatar, used to say that till the minister resigns, there can be no fair investigation. We remind him of the words he used to say against an honest prime minister like Manmohan Singh,”

Maken alleged that the AAP government waived off the liquor license fee of about Rs 144 crore of the liquor mafia. “This is totally a matter of corruption. This AAP govt came to power in the name of removing corruption, now Kejriwal and Sisodia are involved in corruption,” he said.

The Delhi excise policy 2021-22 came under the scanner after Delhi Lt Governor V K Saxena last month recommended a CBI probe into alleged irregularities in its implementation. He also suspended 11 excise officials in the matter.

The CBI inquiry was recommended on the findings of the Delhi chief secretary’s report filed in July showing prima facie violations of the GNCTD Act 1991, Transaction of Business Rules (ToBR)-1993, Delhi Excise Act-2009 and Delhi Excise Rules-2010.
