The Bharatiya Janata Party alleged that AAP leaders are projecting a lower court's bail order in the Delhi excise policy case as its judgement in a bid to influence the judiciary and mislead people. They also said that it is in contempt of court and the Delhi high court should take cognizance of it.

Addressing a press briefing in Delhi, BJP national spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia alleged that the AAP leaders are holding press conferences to "spread lies" using parts of the May 6 bail order as Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is scared and worried about his fate in the aftermath of his deputy Manish Sisdoia's arrest in the case.

"Court's bail order is not its judgement. Yet, all spokespersons of the Aam Aadmi Party are lying and using the bail border to say that that court held there was no proof of any scam in the case,” Bhatia charged.

The Rouse Avenue District Court in Delhi on May 6 order granted bail to co-accused Rajesh Joshi and Gautam Malhotra in the case and did not acquit them, he said.

"When such kind of press conferences are being held, Delhi High Court should take cognizance of it. It is being done only to influence the judiciary and mislead the public. This is matter of contempt of court,” Bhatia added.

The BJP spokesperson also hit out at AAP national convenor Kejriwal alleging that he came into politics with the promise of eradicating corruption but became “a synonym of corruption” himself.

"Kejriwal is synonymous with corruption.... He is hardcore dishonest and kingpin of the liquor scam,” Bhatia charged.

On the official Twitter handle of Bharatiya Janata Party, they posted Bhatia's statement on Kejriwal, it said, "If anyone is synonymous with corruption then it is Arvind Kejriwal. Arvind Kejriwal is the pinnacle of corruption Arvind Kejriwal is a staunch dishonest person and whose Arvind Kejriwal is the liquor scam right under our nose. People are saying today that Arvind Kejriwal is so drunk that he cannot even see the orders of the court."

AAP leaders are holding press conferences and using the court's bail orders to spread lies and mislead people as Kejriwal is "so scared and worried" about his fate since his deputy Sisodia was arrested in the case, he added.

“If there is no prima facie case, why Manish Sisodia has not got any relief from the court so far. The Supreme Court also declined to entertain his plea,” the BJP spokesperson contended.
