Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, AAP leader and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said that the PM has accepted that the liquor policy case is wrong and has no evidence in the case. 

While addressing a press conference, Kejriwal said the BJP has been screaming that there has been a scam but not even a penny was recovered.

"They have been screaming for two years that there is a liquor scam claiming it was to the tune of Rs 100 crore, but not even a penny has been recovered," said Kejriwal. 

Kejriwal, who was arrested in the Delhi excise policy case is out on interim bail till June 1. 

In an interview, PM Modi called the Delhi CM an "experienced thief" and said, "A former government official who knows how ED, CBI will progress in a case can cover up a lot." Replying to Modi’s remark, Kejriwal said that Modi accepted that there was no evidence in the case.

"Yesterday, the PM was asked in an interview that Kejriwal was saying that no evidence has been found in the case. The PM said no money was found because Kejriwal is an experienced thief. He accepted that no recovery was made," he added.

"To hide it, he said Kejriwal is an 'anubhavi chor'. This is just an excuse to prove the wrong arrests right. When you have accepted that excise scam is wrong, please release those who have been arrested," said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener.
