Dy CM Manish Sisodia moves motion in Delhi Assembly for commission of inquiry


Delhi’s deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday moved a motion in the Delhi Assembly to institute a commission of inquiry into the CBI raid on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s office this month.

“I urge that the Assembly to constitute an inquiry commission Under Rule 90 of 1953, Section 3,” said Sisiodia at the special session called for this purpose.

Sisodia also sought a probe into the charges of corruption in the Delhi and District Cricket Association.

“Some media reports said that sports is not a subject. But sports is a state subject,” stressed Sisiodia. “In Delhi, when a young person tries to play cricket professionally, he has to face corruption. People are playing with future of talented cricketers.”

While speaking in favour of the motion, MLA Alka Lamba also condemned the CBI raid on chief minister’s office. She also launched a vicious attack on former DDCA president Arun Jaitley and sought an inquiry against him for alleged corruption in the association during his reign (1999-2013).

Lamba said that everyone knew that the chief minister’s office was on the third floor of the Delhi Secretariat.

“I was in the Secretariat when the raid happened, and alleged that CBI officials read each paper of the DDCA files and notes were read and inquired into,” she said.

Later, other MLAs also supported the motion moved by Sisodia.
