“BJP Wants To Indulge In Dirty Politics”: AAP Hits Out At BJP After Key Aides Of Kejriwal, Sisodia Arrested

On Vijay Nair’s arrest, AAP says, “They arrested Vijay Nair yesterday. Who is Vijay Nair? AAP ka chhota sa karyakarta hai. He handles communication for us”

New Delhi: Vijay Nair, former CEO of event management company Only Much Louder, and an accused in the Delhi Excise Policy case, was arrested on September 27 by the Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI) in connection with the Delhi liquor policy scam. Today, Enforcement Directorate has arrested Sameer Mahendru, the Managing Director of Indospirit Group, in connection with a money laundering probe it has launched in connection with the Delhi liquor policy scam. For arresting its aides AAP slammed BJP and said that people are suffering from inflation, unemployment, and many other things but BJP only want to indulge in dirty politics.

In its FIR CBI alleged that Mahendru was involved in irregularities in the framing and implementation of excise policy. It also said a person named Arjun Pandey collected an amount of about Rs 2 to 4 crore from Mahendru on behalf of Vijay Nair.

On Vijay Nair’s arrest, AAP’s Chief Arvind Kejriwal indirectly slammed BJP. He said, “People from across the country are suffering because of price rise and inflation, everything is expensive, there is joblessness and businesses are shutting down. At a time like this, it is the biggest job of any government to find solutions. But they don’t care. They only want to indulge in dirty politics. They are only looking for ways to finish AAP, to crush Kejriwal and AAP.”

In his video address he said, “They arrested Vijay Nair yesterday. Who is Vijay Nair? AAP ka chhota sa karyakarta hai. He handles communication for us. Earlier, he did great work in Punjab and we formed the government there. Now, he is handling the communication strategy in Gujarat. He was handling social media outreach in Gujarat. They are saying he was involved in a liquor scam in Delhi. I don’t understand how he is linked to liquor or a liquor scam. He looks at social media in Gujarat. He is just a party worker.”

Vijay Nair along with Deputy CM Manish Sisodia and 13 others was named in CBI’s FIR in the liquor scam case.

Kejriwal said that he was forced to take Sisodia’s name. “Over the past few days, he was being called for questioning every day. He was being pressured to name Manish Sisodia and threatened with arrest if he did not name him. But he is a truthful AAP worker and refused to lie. They arrested him. Earlier, they raided Manish Sisodia’s home but did not find anything. They searched his bank locker but did not find anything, now they are trying to trap him like this. They raided Vijay Nair’s home twice in a month but did not find anything there either,” said Kejriwal.

Kejriwal linked Nair’s arrest with the upcoming Gujarat polls. He said, “The people of Gujarat are abusing them openly. They only think about how to crush AAP. First, they arrested Satyendar Jain (Delhi minister) in a fake case, and then they arrested MLA Amanatullah Khan in a fake case. Yesterday, they arrested Nair. Next week, they will arrest Manish Sisodia”.
