Lok Sabha Member of Parliament Manoj Tiwari on Thursday launched a scathing attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, accusing him of being the kingpin in the Delhi liquor policy scam. Addressing a press conference in the National Capital, the Bharatiya Janata Party MP from North East Delhi alleged that funds earmarked for slum areas were siphoned off by the Aam Aadmi Party for illicit activities.

Tiwari asserted that the AAP has looted public welfare money and called on Kejriwal to resign on moral grounds. 'Arvind Kejriwal used to say that if any allegations were made against me, I would resign. Now, after the ED chargesheet, everything is clear and we hope, on moral grounds, he will resign,' stated Tiwari.

The MP further alleged that Kejriwal is the mastermind behind the scam, as evidenced by his inclusion as the 37th accused in the chargesheet. 'There is no second opinion that Arvind Kejriwal is the kingpin of this entire incident. The judge has stated there is sufficient evidence against him, and further action should be taken,' he said.

On a separate issue, Tiwari addressed the recent breach of a sub-branch of Munak Canal in Bawana, North Delhi, which led to flooding in residential areas. Tiwari called for immediate action from the Delhi government, while Delhi's Water Minister Atishi announced that repair work is in progress and expected to be completed by Friday.
