Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia has been summoned by CBI on February 26 in the liquor policy case
Earlier, the Aam Aadmi Party leader and Deputy CM of Delhi was asked to appear before the central probe agency.
Mr Sisodia had requested the deferral of the interrogation, citing the ongoing budget exercise of the Delhi government.
‘CBI has called me again tomorrow. They have used full force of the CBI and ED. They raided my house, searched my bank lockers but could not find any evidence against me. I have ensured quality education for Delhi’s children. They want to stop my efforts. I have always cooperated in probe and will continue to do so,’ he tweeted on Saturday.
‘It’s my duty as finance minister to present the budget on time and I have been working 24 hours for it. I have requested the CBI to allow me to come after the last week of February and answer all their questions,’ he added.
Mr Sisodia was questioned in October last year and his residence was also searched by the CBI in connection with the case.
Mr Sisodia has not been named as an accused in the charge sheet as of yet, as investigations continue.
