Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) minister Atishi on Tuesday said that after June 4 when the INDIA bloc will win and form the government, an investigation into the electoral bonds scheme will be initiated and in this not just the BJP, but ED, CBI, I-T officers will be sent to jail.

Addressing a presser in Delhi, AAP minister Atishi said, "The people of this country have made up their mind to remove the BJP government by their votes. They (BJP) can do as many scams as they want because after June 4, an investigation into the country's biggest scam will happen. After June 4, when INDIA alliance will form the government, electoral bonds scam worth crores will be probed. In this, not just BJP leaders, but also ED, CBI, I-T officers will be sent to jail."

"I want to clearly tell the BJP that now your end is near. Now the people of the country have made up their minds. After June 4, when the INDIA bloc forms the government, the country's biggest electoral bond scam will be investigated in which not only BJP leaders will go to jail but ED, CBI and IT officers will also go to jail because they are also involved in it," Atishi said.

Speaking on Delhi High Court dismissing Manish Sisodia's bail petitions, Atishi said, "We respect the High Court but we respectfully disagree with this decision of the court. Because this entire so-called liquor scam is a political conspiracy of the BJP. The conspiracy was hatched when BJP was unable to defeat AAP in the electoral arena and ED and CBI were used."

Atishi said the whole case is based on statements taken through coercion and alleged that witnesses were tortured or beaten up till the time they did not give statements against AAP leaders.

Earlier today, the Delhi High Court dismissed bail petitions of former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in the alleged liquor scam case. However, the court has allowed him to meet his ailing wife once in a week.
