Was pressured to quit AAP, offered Delhi CM’s post: Sisodia after CBI questioning


New Delhi: After his questioning by the CBI in the Delhi excise scam case, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday claimed that he was pressured to leave Aam Aadmi Party and was offered Delhi CM’s post.

Sisodia was quizzed by the CBI for over nine hours in connection with the case.

“BJP says there is a Rs 10,000 crore excise scam. I found at CBI office that there is no scam and the case is fake. The fake case against me is a conspiracy to make BJP’s ‘Operation Lotus’ a success in Delhi,” Sisodia told reporters after the questioning.  He alleged that he was pressurised to quit AAP.

“I was asked inside the CBI office to leave (AAP), or else such cases will keep getting registered against me. I was told ‘Satyendar Jain ke upar konse sachhe cases hain?’…I said I won’t leave AAP for BJP. They said they’ll make me CM,”  Sisodia alleged.
