Lt. Governor Vinay Kumar Saxena has recommended a CBI probe into Delhi’s excise policy 2021-22. BJP leaders allege that corruption has been done in the name of new excise duty policy and corruption has also been done in allotment of shops. Drug addiction has been encouraged in Delhi with the new excise duty policy and door-to-door delivery of liquor has been made by allowing online sale of liquor. This recommendation by Saxena has been made following a complaint by BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa.
At the same time, the Aam Aadmi Party has termed it as an attempt to stop the popularity of Arvind Kejriwal. The party has alleged that the BJP is trying to implicate Manish Sisodia. Its leader Satyendar Jain is already in the custody of the Enforcement Directorate since May 30.
In fact, Lt. Governor Vinay Kumar Saxena has made this recommendation after the Chief Secretary’s report came to fore saying that the name of the new excise duty policy was tampered with. The report said shopkeepers benefited from the waiver of fees required to open a liquor store during the Corona period. The BJP alleges that on the pretext of this apology, a huge amount of money has been illegally received from the shopkeepers, which has been misused by the Aam Aadmi Party to continue its election campaign in Punjab.
BJP leader Harish Khurana has alleged that a blacklisted company cannot be allowed to open a shop as per rules, but the Aam Aadmi Party government has allowed blacklisted companies to open shops in Delhi. Apart from this, as per the rules, manufacturing companies are not allowed to sell liquor in the retail sector, but even after that, large manufacturing companies were allowed to sell liquor outdoors in Delhi. This is a direct violation of the rules and should be thoroughly investigated.
what were the changes
In the name of the change in rules, the age limit required to buy liquor in Delhi was reduced from 25 years to 21 years. Apart from this, permission was also given to open liquor shops on the streets, which led to protests from place to place. The way was also prepared to allow only one company to open all the shops in the same area. It is alleged that in return, huge money was recovered from the liquor dealers.
The Aam Aadmi Party attacked
At the same time, the Aam Aadmi Party has called it an attempt to stop the popularity of Arvind Kejriwal. The party alleges that efforts are constantly being made to stop the functioning of the Delhi Aam Aadmi Party. After the former Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, Anil Baijal, now the new Lt Governor Vinay Kumar Saxena is constantly trying to stop his plans.
The party alleges that an attempt is being made to implicate its leader Manish Sisodia by questioning the liquor policy. As the Aam Aadmi Party looks at Delhi education as the model for its expansion to other states, is trying to improve its school system, efforts are being made to involve its Education Minister.
AAP alleges that if Arvind Kejriwal goes to Singapore and describes Delhi’s education system in front of international institutions, it would increase his popularity, so to stop this, BJP wants to stop Arvind Kejriwal from going to Singapore. He alleges that now Manish Sisodia’s case is being raised to suppress this matter so that his attempt to stop Kejriwal is not before the people.
