As per the AAP loyalist, it’s a planted conspiracy against the Delhi ruling party and the excise policy case is “invalid”. “BJP is trying to make ‘Operation Lotus’ successful in Delhi,” he said.

In a statement, Sisodia said almost 40 AAP MLAs had to change the party, and the saffron party has kept Rs 800 crore for this purpose. Taking a dig at CBI’s statement, Sisodia said, “If the officers of the CBI issued a press release saying that ‘Operation Lotus’ was done, then people would be surprised. Their focus was not on the excise policy…completely concocted stories.”
