What did Kejriwal say after questioning?
After the CBI inquiry, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday that the CBI asked him about 56 questions in the Excise Policy case and he answered all of them. Kejriwal said I want to say that the whole matter of the Excise Policy is fake(Manish Sisodia).
They don’t have any proof that Aam Aadmi Party(Manish Sisodia) is wrong. This is the result of dirty politics. They (CBI) asked me questions in a friendly and cordial manner. I answered all the questions asked by him.
