Delhi: Deputy CM Manish Sisodia’s big claim on the new excise policy, asked- How did the LG change the stand in 48 hours?

Manish Sisodia Press Conference : Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia held a press conference on Saturday regarding the new excise policy. Sisodia said, ‘In the New Excise Policy, it was proposed not to increase the shop but to distribute the shop equally in the whole of Delhi’. Talking to the media, he made a big claim. Said that, the new policy was made only with the approval of the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also said that in the new excise policy, the government had accepted the suggestions of the Lieutenant Governor. Let us tell you that the new excise policy was implemented in Delhi in May 2021. Under the policy, old liquor shopkeepers benefit. Sisodia also said that when the file to open the shops went to the LG, suddenly the stand was changed. LG changed its decision on the issue of shops. Manish claims that the LG had approved the new excise policy after reading it twice.

Changed decision without discussing with the government

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said in the press conference, ‘The Lieutenant Governor (LG) changed the decision without discussing with the Delhi government and the cabinet. How did the decision suddenly change? In this regard, the CBI has been proposed to investigate.

Loss of thousands of crores due to change of decision

Sisodia further said, ‘If the lieutenant governor’s office had not changed the decision, the government would not have lost thousands of crores. The Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi alleged that shops in unauthorized areas did not open due to the change of stand by LG. Liquor shops opened only in some places. Only a few people benefited from this. In such a situation it should be probed.
