Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) allegedly used money generated from a purported liquor scam to fund its election campaign in Goa in 2022, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) alleged in a chargesheet filed in the case on Thursday.

In the chargesheet, the ED has claimed that investigation trail in the Delhi liquor scam case has revealed AAP used part of the funds generated in the scam for its poll campaign in Goa.

AAP managed to win two seats in the Goa Assembly elections.

The ED chargesheet claimed that Rs 70 lakh in cash payments were made to volunteers of AAP’s survey teams, adding that party’s communications chief Vijay Nair allegedly told “certain persons” who were involved in AAP’s campaign related work, to receive payments in cash.

The probe agency’s chargesheet has further alleged that, on AAP’s behalf, Nair received over Rs 100 crore in payments from a group comprising of YSRCP MP Magunta Sreenivasulu Reddy, his son Raghav Magunta, Aurobindo Pharma director P Sarath Chandra Reddy and Telangana CM KCR’s daughter Kavitha Kalvakuntla.

The ED further alleged that Abhishek Boinpally, a Hyderabad-based businessman, in conspiracy with Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s aide Dinesh Arora had facilitated the transfer of the kickback money.

The central agency also filed a supplementary chargesheet in the case against AAP’s Vijay Nair, businessmen Sarath Reddy, Binoy Babu, Abhishek Boinpally and Amit Arora. The chargesheet, which was produced before Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court today, did not include Manish Sisodia’s name.

Further investigation in the case is ongoing, the ED told the court.

In a statement, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal said the allegations levelled by the ED as “completely fictional”.

The liquor scheme came to the fore after Delhi L-G Vinai Kumar Saxena alleged irregularities in the implementation of Delhi’s Excise Policy 2021-22 and recommended a CBI probe into the matter.

The alleged scam also came under the ED’s radar who are probing a money trail it generated.

In July 2022, AAP government junked the Delhi Excise Policy, which was implemented in November 2021.
