Sisodia said – arrested in fake case
Reacting sharply to the arrest, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said Jain has been arrested in an eight-year-old “fake” case as he is in-charge of the Aam Aadmi Party for the assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh and the BJP in the elections. There is a fear of defeat.
In a tweet made in Hindi, Sisodia said, “A fake case is being run against Satyendra Jain for eight years. So far, the ED has summoned him several times. In between, the ED even stopped calling him for several years, as he did not get anything. Now started again because Satyendar Jain is the election in-charge of Himachal.”
Sisodia said, “BJP is losing badly in Himachal. That is why Satyendra Jain has been arrested so that he cannot go to Himachal. He will be released soon as he has been arrested in a fake case.” Jain (57) is the Minister of Health, Industry, Power, Home, Urban Development and Water in the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government.
