On Friday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal stated that the CBI raid at his junior colleague’s house was the outcome of their good performance that has received global recognition.

He said that CBI raids have been conducted earlier also, and nothing will happen this time as well.

“The day Delhi’s Education model was appreciated and Manish Sisodia’s photo appeared on the front page of America’s biggest newspaper NYT, the Centre sent CBI at the residence of Manish. CBI is welcome. Will extend full cooperation. Earlier also there were raid and probe. Nothing came out. Nothing will come out now also”, Kejriwal tweeted.

Last month Delhi Lt Governor VK Saxena had recommended a CBI probe into purported inconsistency in Excuse Policy 2921-22 implementation. Moreover, He had suspended 11 Excise officers on the issue.

Sisodia was among those who had demanded a probe by the CBI into the alleged irregularities in the policy.

He tweeted, “The CBI has come. They are welcome. We are dead honest. Shaping up future of lakhs of children. It’s very unfortunate that those who do good work are harassed like this. That’s why our country has not become number one in the world.”


In another tweet, Sisodia said, “Your conspiracy won’t break me. I have made these schools for lakhs of Delhi children.”

He said that he will fully cooperate with the CBI and that numerous cases were filed against him, and nothing has ever been found. This time will also be the same, he assured.
