Arvind Kejriwal ‘scared’ of CBI probe: BJP as Delhi government rolls back new excise policy

The BJP on Saturday claimed the Kejriwal government scrapped its new excise policy as it was “scared” by the lieutenant governor’s recommendation for a CBI probe into its implementation. Union minister and New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi asked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government to answer the questions and charges of corruption levelled by the BJP leaders since the implementation of the new excise policy. “The Kejriwal government in Delhi is scared of the CBI probe that would expose its corruption and has hence taken back its new excise policy. The AAP should answer why commission of licensees under the policy was increased from 2.5 per cent to 12 per cent,” she said at a media briefing.
