Delhi is in the midst of a major political shakeup as Manish Sisodia, the Deputy Chief Minister of the state, is being questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with an alleged excise policy case. In response to the investigation, parts of the city have been blocked off as a precautionary measure.
The CBI is looking into allegations of illegalities and irregularities in the implementation of the Delhi Excise Policy of 2016-17. The policy was meant to reduce the availability of alcohol and liquor in the state and to discourage its consumption. However, it has been alleged that the policy was implemented in an arbitrary and illegal manner, resulting in losses to the government exchequer.
Manish Sisodia has been questioned by the CBI on multiple occasions in connection with the case. He has denied any wrongdoing and has stated that he is cooperating with the investigation.
In response to the investigation, parts of Delhi have been blocked off and security has been increased. This includes the area around Sisodia’s residence, which has been sealed off. Traffic restrictions have also been imposed in some areas and police personnel have been deployed to maintain order.
The investigation into the case has been ongoing for some time and is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. It remains to be seen what the outcome of the investigation will be and whether any action will be taken against those involved. In the meantime, Delhi residents are advised to stay informed about the situation and to remain vigilant.
