WrittenBy:Akanksha Kumar& Ashwine Kumar Singh

A day after the CBI arrested Delhi's deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia in the Delhi excise policy case, the Aam Aadmi Party protested against the BJP’s “vendetta politics” on Monday. However, its demonstration hit a wall outside the BJP’s headquarters in Delhi. AAP members struggled to cross the barrier put up by security personnel, including the Delhi Police, CISF and RAF, and around 50 party workers were detained.
