ACB questioning based on clarification note on file: Sisodia

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday said his questioning by the ACB for three hours was based solely on a clarification note he had signed, adding the whole affair was aimed to stop the government's public welfare work.

"How do I become a criminal just for writing a clarification note (on an official file)? When I asked them, they (Anti Corruption Branch) had no answer," Sisodia said.

Sisodia appeared before the Anti Corruption Branch (ACB) on Friday regarding a case of alleged illegal recruitments in the Commission for Women (DCW), in which DCW chief Swati Maliwal has been booked.

He said he had clarified in the said note that as per the Commission for Women Act, 1994, the administrative and financial powers in the panel lie with the commission's member-secretary.

"This is a note that just clarifies the law," he said.

Sisodia said the questioning showcases the attempts to stop the government's work for public welfare.

"The amount of work the government has done in the last one and a half years -- and that too at such a fast pace -- no other government has done in the last 20 years," the Deputy Chief Minister added.

Earlier in the day, Sisodia told reporters that some people are not able to digest the government's work.

"We are doing our work and some people are not able to digest it. This is why the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and ACB have been told to go after us," Sisodia said.

Just after Sisodia's visit to the ACB office, DCW chief Swati Maliwal said that the ACB summons to Sisodia "reeks of political vendetta".

"ACB summoning @msisodia (Manish Sisodia) reeks of political vendetta. He has no role in DCW appointments. DCW was always autonomous," Maliwal tweeted.

Maliwal, an accused in the alleged illegal recruitments case, was questioned twice by the ACB before she was booked in the case.
