AAP gets Rs 45 crore in liquor policy scam

Aam Aadmi Party's troubles are increasing in the Delhi liquor policy scam. In this case, many serious allegations have been made against Aam Aadmi Party and accused number 10 in the charge sheet filed by ED. 38 charges have been made.

After considering the ED chargesheet, the Rouse Avenue trial court has ordered all the accused, including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, to appear in court on July 12. However, Kejriwal sought permission to appear through video conferencing, which was accepted by the court. In the chargesheet, the ED has claimed that out of the Rs 100 crore bribe received in the liquor policy scam, Rs 45 crore went directly to the Aam Aadmi Party and this amount was sent through hawala for use in the Goa assembly elections.

The role of Aam Aadmi Party and Kejriwal in the crime of money laundering is quite clear. Thus, the Aam Aadmi Party led by Kejriwal is involved in activities such as receiving, using and hiding crime proceeds of Rs 45 crore. This is the first time a political party has been accused in a money laundering case. The ED claims that the liquor policy of the Delhi government for the financial year 2021-22 wrongly benefited the liquor traders and in return bribes were taken from them. However, the Aam Aadmi Party and the Delhi government have been denying these allegations.
