Speaking to ANI, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia alleged that the Central government is using the CBI to divert the people’s attention from the good work that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has done. “Do you remember what happened yesterday? The same CBI had to close its probe into Satyendra Jain’s daughter Soumya Jain’s appointment as a volunteer to the state government’s project on mohalla clinics because they did not find any evidence against her,” said Sisodia.
