LG gives permission to CBI to investigate against Delhi government in espionage case
This fund was named Secret Service Fund. The head of the FBU was also made to a retired officer from the paramilitary force. BJP is now demanding that the money spent on this should also be recovered from Manish Sisodia.
Delhi's Aam Aadmi Party government has been accused of spying on the BJP. In this case, Delhi's LG Vinay Saxena has given permission to the CBI to register a case against Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia under the Prevention of Corruption Act. Along with Sisodia, a case will also be registered against six other people, including an IAS officer. It is alleged that the Aam Aadmi Party government, after coming to power in 2015, created a Feedback Unit under the Vigilance Department, which was used to spy on political opponents. According to the officials of the LG office, in the preliminary investigation of the CBI, it has come to light that the Feedback Unit was used to spy on the leaders.
Delhi BJP is demonstrating on this issue today. Many big leaders of BJP are protesting from ITO to Delhi Secretariat with binoculars in their hands. It also includes Delhi BJP working president Virendra Sachdeva and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Ramveer Singh Bidhuri. The BJP alleges that this unit has been formed under the Vigilance Department to keep an eye on the leaders of the opposition party. BJP said that one crore rupees were given at the time of formation of the feedback unit. This fund was named Secret Service Fund. The head of the FBU was also made to a retired officer from the paramilitary force. BJP is now demanding that the money spent on this should also be recovered from Manish Sisodia.
According to sources, the LG raised questions that on September 29, 2015, the proposal to set up a feedback unit was placed in the cabinet. The Chief Minister himself made this proposal, but no cabinet note was given along with it. It seems that it was made like a private intelligence agency.The FBU started functioning from February 2016, at that time it employed 17 people, all of whom were contractual employees. All of them were retired from paramilitary force and agencies like IB. This FBU could work only for seven months. Then the Vigilance Department itself complained about it and it was disbanded.
