Arvind Kejriwal and other AAP leaders, while continuously targeting the BJP-led central government, are counting Sisodia’s contribution when he was the education minister of Delhi. CM Kejriwal tweeted on this issue in the past, targeting PM Modi, “Prime Minister, nothing was found in the raid from Manish Sisodia’s house. He was arrested by applying all sections of CBI, ED. Your party K MLA got so much cash here, he was not arrested? Now don’t you ever talk about fighting corruption. Your mouth doesn’t like it.”
