Union Minister Anurag Thakur hit back at Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and said the AAP minister might be the number one accused in the Excise policy scam but the kingpin is Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Anurag Thakur on Saturday took a dig at Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia stating that he might have changed his name to “Money Shh”, alleging that he is good at taking money and keeping quiet about it. Thakur was addressing a press conference a day after CBI conducted raids at Sisodia’s official residence in connection with alleged violations in the now withdrawn Delhi Excise Policy of the Aam Admi Party government.
Anurag Thakur also slammed the AAP government over the liquor policy and said, “Ye revdi ki sarkaar bhi hai aur bevdi ki bhi, Today’s press conference clearly showed how the colour on his face was gone after his scam. He couldn’t even answer any questions”.

“Manish Ji, if your liquor policy was right, why did you take it back? It’s like ‘chor ki daadhi mei tinka’. why is there a soft corner for liquor businessmen? I challenge Arvind Kejriwal to come in front of the nation and answer me within 24 hours,” Thakur said.
Soon after Thakur’s Press conference, Sisodia held a conference and rejected all allegations of a scam in the Delhi excise policy, terming it the best excise policy in the country, and declared himself as Kattar Imaandar.
