A week after the Delhi government announced its decision to scrap its new liquor policy, the Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday blamed the former Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal for a huge loss under the new liquor policy.

Addressing a press conference today, he said he had written to the CBI to probe ex-LG’s change of stance on the opening of liquor shops in unauthorised areas.

Hitting out at former LG, the Deputy CM called for a CBI probe against LG for his alleged sudden change of mind on opening liquor shops in unauthorised areas that caused a huge loss to Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party government. Due to a sudden change of decision in LG office, some shopkeepers got profit of thousands of crores and the government lost thousands of crores, he said.

Anil Baijal was the Delhi LG when the AAP government was preparing for the new excise policy, which was implemented on November 17, 2021.

The cabinet’s policy was earlier cleared by the former LG, but the decision was later revoked. This led to losses worth thousands of crores. Why was this decision taken? Hoping that the CBI carries out a fair probe, Sisodia said.

Sisodia said it should also be probed why Baijal changed his stand that benefited some players and caused financial losses to the government. It should also be probed if the former LG took the decision under pressure and whether any BJP leader had anything to do with it, the Deputy CM said.

As per the new excise policy in May 2021, it was decided that there would be an equal number of liquor shops in every area. Earlier there were up to 20 shops in one place, while none in some others, Sisodia also claimed.

The Excise Policy 2021-22, which was extended twice after March 31 for a period of two months each, had been ended on July 31.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Monday took a jibe at the government in her Independence Day wish and said her party will strongly oppose the distortion of history for political gain.

In her message on the occasion of Independence Day, Gandhi said attempts to trivialise the sacrifices of freedom fighters and the glorious achievements made by the country over the last 75 years can never be accepted. The BJP has been trying to malign leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru to further its political propaganda, she said.

Her statement comes a day after a row erupted after BJP dropped Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of independent India, from its Har Ghar Tiranga advertisement in Karnataka.

India has achieved a lot over the last 75 years but what can never be accepted is that the current self-absorbed government is hell-bent on trivialising the great sacrifices made by freedom fighters and the country’s glorious achievements, Gandhi said in her message.

Hitting out at BJP, Gandhi said the Congress will not accept any wrong portrayal of historical facts for political gains nor will it allow any insult to Gandhi-Nehru-Patel-Azad based on falsehoods, she said in her written message.

Wishing the country on the occasion of India’s 76th Independence Day, Gandhi said over the last 75 years, highly talented Indians have led the country on the path of progress in the fields of science, education, health, and information.

Gandhi said India had cemented its image as a glorious nation through its diverse cultures and languages. They also made provisions for a strong democracy and constitutional institutions, she said in her Independence Day message.

Gandhi also said that the visionary leaders of India laid the foundations of a free, fair, and transparent election system.

Expressing happiness over the announcement of 10 lakh government jobs, Kumar’s deputy said it is a historic announcement made by respected Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on the occasion of 76th Independence Day at Gandhi Maidan, Patna.

Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav has repeatedly been cornered on his electoral promise of 10 lakh jobs which he made during the 2020 assembly polls sitting at the opposition cam.

The young RJD leader had earlier said that his jobs promise had the nod from Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. This massive announcement made by the Bihar CM is the real issue that the media should focus on. The two parties will work together to make it happen, he also said.

Yadav had earlier posted a clip of him answering the question with a shot at the BJP. It is a success that instead of Hindu-Muslim topics, the media is asking the leaders about employment. The people who were sleeping and never asked about jobs, that media is also awake now. Isn’t this a success? he had said.
