What allegations did the BJP MLAs make?

Meanwhile, BJP MLAs are demanding the resignation of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia over corruption in the excise policy of 2021-22.

BJP MLA Ramvir Singh Bidhuri told ANI that Sisodia was accused of corruption in the 2021-22 excise policy, which was later withdrawn by the AAP administration. If all was well with the liquor policy, why did the government withdraw it? Arvind Kejriwal needs to answer.

“We want an explanation from Kejriwal as to why he is running away from answering questions when there have been several scams where the Kejriwal administration has been accused of indulging in corruption,” he said.

Responding to AAP’s protest and demand for LG Saxena’s resignation, Vijender Gupta said it was nothing but their fear as they were entangled in corruption. They said they were scared because they were exposed as corrupt. Be it Delhi excise policy or Delhi education, corruption has been committed.
