Two new ministers will be made soon in place of Sisodia and Jain – Saurabh Bhardwaj

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj, removing the clouds of crisis hovering over the budget session, has made it clear that soon two ministers will be brought in place of Sisodia and Satyendar Jain. For the time being, his department will be handed over to others.

Delhi: Delhi ministers Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain resigned from the cabinet on Tuesday amid allegations of corruption. Due to Sisodia having 18 departments out of 33, the budget session of the Delhi government started facing trouble. In such a situation, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj has cleared the picture. In a press conference, he said that two ministers (Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain), who are known for their work, are trying to falsely implicate them. Both have submitted their resignations.

Further, Saurabh also said that apart from the Chief Minister, there are 6 ministers. Most of the important ministries were with these two. In such a situation, the work of Delhi should not be affected, so his department will be handed over to other people. Soon two ministers will be made in their place. Every MLA and worker of AAP is with Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain. We don't have any timeline for when two ministers will be made in their place, but they will be made.

Who will present the budget?

On the other hand, on the question of who will present the media budget, Saurabh said that we do not have information about it. Let us tell you that Manish Sisodia was arrested on charges of alleged corruption in making and implementing the liquor policy for the year 2021-22. At present, Sisodia is in the custody of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) till March 4. At the same time, Satyendar Jain is in jail since May 30, 2022 in a money laundering case. The resignations of both the ministers have been accepted by Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

Court refuses to consider Sisodia's bail plea

On the other hand, the Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to consider a petition by Manish Sisodia, in which he requested to grant bail and quash the FIR in the Excise Policy case. The court also said that this would set a wrong precedent and he (Sisodia) has effective alternative remedies. A bench of Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha said that since effective alternative remedies are available with the petitioner (Sisodia) under the provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure, we are inclined to consider the petition under Article 32 of the Constitution in the present situation. Not willing to. Hence the petition is disposed of.
