Manish Sisodia

A court in the national capital, Monday, extended the judicial custody of former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia by 14 days, till April 3.

Manish Sisodia was arrested by the CBI on February 26 in connection with its ongoing probe into the purported Delhi excise policy ‘scam’ case.

The CBI told Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court that their investigation into the alleged scam is still pending and at a crucial stage which requires Sisodia’s further detention in judicial custody.

The development comes mere two days after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) was granted the AAP leader’s custody for five more days, till March 22.

On Friday last, 51-year-old Sisodia’s ED custody was extended by a court in Delhi till March 22. The ED had told the court that Sisodia was allegedly involved in “large-scale destruction of digital evidence to impede the investigation” and had purportedly changed and destroyed 14 phones.

Manish Sisodia was arrested on March 9 by the ED while he was already lodged in Tihar jail in case against him by the CBI in connection with the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy case.

A Delhi court last week extended the former Deputy CM’s custody by five days after the ED sought more time for investigating the charges.

The ED told the court that some vital information had come up during custody and he had to be confronted with the other accused.

After the court’s decision, senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Raghav Chadha on Friday had claimed that central probe agencies don’t have any evidence, only “fabricated and malicious” stories against Sisodia.

Speaking at a presser, Chadha had accused the BJP of engaging in “politics of revenge” which he claimed was the reason behind Sisodia’s arrest. He had also claimed that the CBI and the ED don’t have any evidence against the former Deputy CM, adding that the probe agencies only questioned Sisodia for 15 hours during seven days of remand.

Chadha had claimed said the BJP was “scared” of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). He further claimed that the probe agencies only have “concocted stories” against Sisodia, and when the CBI couldn’t find anything against him during their interrogation, they asked the ED to “frame more false cases.”

West Bengal governor CV Ananda Bose has been warned by the Election Commission of India (ECI) not to visit Cooch Behar on April 18 and 19, since the first phase of the Lok Sabha polls will begin with a silence period on Wednesday evening.

According to those familiar with the situation in the EC, the poll body informed the governor’s office that no local program could be planned for the governor on April 19 due to the Model Code of Conduct and the election day.

The poll body added that if they had to provide local security cover for this unexpected proposed visit without a imminently known requirement, the tour would be a diversion because the district administration and police force will be completely occupied with election management on April 18 and 19.

As a result, under Section 126 of the Representation of People Act, campaigning is prohibited in Cooch Behar starting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

In order to ensure a free and fair election process, the poll board has asked all district election officers and district police chiefs to make sure that all prominent individuals, campaigners, and political workers who are not local voters leave the polling area once the silence period begins.

The seven phases of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections will take place between April to June. Polls will be conducted in seven phases: the first on April 19 and the seventh on June 1. On June 4, the results will be announced.

West Bengal CM Mamta Banarjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) today released its manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. In its manifesto, the TMC pledged to repeal the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), stop the development of a National Register of citizens and the Uniform Civil Code (UCC), and stop its implementation nationwide.

The manifesto was unveiled by Trinamool MP Derek O’Brien, West Bengal Minister Chandrima Bhattacharya, and Amit Mitra, who is the Special Advisor to the Chief Minister. However, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee was not present at the event.

As Derek O’Brien unveiled the manifesto, he said, this is what they will do when the TMC, as part of INDIA bloc, forms government.

The Citizenship Amendment Act has long been opposed by the Trinamool Congress. Five years after it was approved by Parliament, the central government finally put the CAA into effect last month.

The party led by Mamata Banerjee has also expressed resistance to the National Register of Citizens proposal, claiming that West Bengal will never adopt it. 

The manifesto titled Didi’s 10 sapaths, alludes to 10 oaths made by Mamata Banerjee, popularly known as Didi.

The Mamata Banerjee-led party additionally pledges to raise the daily allowance under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act to Rs 400 per day in addition to the UCC and CAA. Everyone has also been offered pucca houses by the party.

A monthly pension of Rs 1,000 for people over 60, free home delivery of 5 kg of ration for every ration card user, 10 free LPG cylinders annually for families below the poverty line, and universal healthcare coverage worth Rs 10 lakh are among the other significant commitments made.

Additionally, the Trinamool Congress has pledged to establish a price stabilization fund in order to control the cost of gasoline and LPG.

The party has assured the youth that every student will receive a monthly stipend up until the age of 25. A student credit card of Rs. 10 lakh will be awarded to those who choose to continue their education.
