Manish Sisodia said that during interrogation he was asked to leave AAP and it has been told that if I do this then I will be made the CM of Delhi. Otherwise, if you do not agree to this, you will have to undergo a jail sentence.
Manish Sisodia made a big claim after the CBI interrogation that I was pressurized to leave AAP, offered to get the post of Chief Minister of Delhi or serve jail term. BJP says excise scam is of Rs 10,000 crore but I did not find any scam and this case is fake. The fake excise case against me is a conspiracy to make BJP’s ‘Operation Lotus’ successful in Delhi.
