Kejriwal's CBI questioning: Punjab ministers stopped from entering Delhi, claims AAP
Chandigarh, April 16: Several AAP leaders, including Punjab ministers and MLAs, claimed on Sunday that they were barred from entering Delhi while the party's national convenor and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was being interrogated by the CBI in the excise policy case.
AAP leaders from Punjab were heading for Delhi to show support for Kejriwal. Notably, the AAP supremo was summoned by a federal agency to its office in the national capital in connection with irregularities in the formulation and implementation of a now-scrapped excise policy.
According to the party, several individuals including ministers Bram Shanker Jimpa, Dr Balbir Singh, and Harjot Singh Bains and MLAs Dinesh Chadha and Kuljit Randhawa were stopped at the Singhu border and were denied entry into Delhi.
Taking to Twitter, Punjab Education Minister Harjot Bains said, "We cannot even enter our capital? @DelhiPolice not allowing my car to enter Delhi."
