Arrested AAP ministers Sisodia, Satyendar Jain quit Delhi cabinet


Delhi ministers Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain on Tuesday resigned from their posts in the state cabinet.

According to a report by ANI, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal accepted their resignation.

Manish Sisodia has been in control of 18 ministries, including Satyendar Jain’s health portfolio, who has been in jail for 10 months.

The resignations followed as the BJP questioned why arrested leaders remained in the Delhi administration.

The Delhi cabinet currently has five ministers, including Kejriwal.

This comes very soon after the Supreme Court’s decision to decline a plea by arrested Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia challenging his arrest by the CBI in an alleged case of corruption in the now-withdrawn Delhi liquor policy.
