In a press conference held at the Delhi Secretariat, Delhi deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of throttling Aam Aadmi Party’s anti-corruption crusade and turning the Anti Corruption Branch of Delhi Police into a defunct body.

Extolling ACB’s role in curbing corruption during AAP’s 49 day political stint in 2013, Sisodia said that the Centre embarked on the path to dilute the body’s power after it realized that a FIR was going to be filed against a union minister by it.

The minister called the appointment of M.K. Meena as the chief of ACB illegal, and held him responsible for the body’s inactivity.

Drawing attention to the recent case where a sub-district magistrate had to let go of two corrupt DDA officials as the police and ACB refused to take them under custody, Sisodia said, “This incident begs the question that if the government catches someone indulging in corrupt activity, where will it take him?”

Further, the deputy CM said that while the Centre cannot even manage the CBI and Enforcement Directorate efficiently, it is constantly trying to interfere with activities of the state government.

“ACB is a part of Delhi government, it’s mentioned in the ‘Allocation of Business Rules’, but Modiji is adamant on managing ACB. Under the centre the CBI is down in the dumps, so is Enforcement Directorate, why is Modiji trying to do the same with ACB?”
