As the political war over Manish Sisodia’s arrest rages, eight opposition parties wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging misuse of the investigation agencies.

Congress hasn’t signed the letter signed by opposition leaders, like K Chandrashekar Rao, Mamata Banerjee, Bhagwant Mann and Arvind Kejriwal.

Among the others who signed the letter are Farooq Abdullah of the National Conference, Sharad Pawar of the Nationalist Congress Party, Uddav Thackeray of the Sena, Akhilesh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party and Tejashwi Yadav of the Bihar Deputy Chief Minister.

The Gandhis are being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for alleged money laundering related to Young Indian’s takeover of Associated Journals Ltd, the company that owned the National Herald. Last year, the ED questioned Rahul Gandhi and his mom Sonia Gandhi.

The letter said, “We hope you’d agree that India is still a democracy. The blatant misuse of central agencies against the opposition suggests that we’re becoming an autocracy.”

“…Manish Sisodia was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for alleged irregularities without a shred of evidence against him,” the opposition leaders wrote to PM Modi.

The opposition has the most key politicians booked, arrested, raided or interrogated under your administration since 2014. The letter said that investigators don’t speed up on cases against opposition politicians who join the BJP.

When he was with the Congress, Himanta Biswa Sarma was under investigation by the CBI and ED in 2014 and 2015 over the Saradha chit fund scam.

After he joined the BJP, the case didn’t go anywhere. The letter alleges that former TMC leaders Suvendu Adhikari and Mukul Roy were under ED and CBI scrutiny in the Narada sting case, but the cases didn’t move forward after they joined the BJP ahead of the assembly elections.

“Since 2014, there has been a marked rise in the number of raids conducted, cases lodged against and arrest of the opposition leaders. Be it Lalu Prasad Yadav (Rashtriya Janata Dal), Sanjay Raut (Shiv Sena), Azam Khan (Samajwadi Party), Nawab Malik, Anil Deshmukh (NCP), Abhishek Banerjee (TMC), central agencies have often sparked suspicion that they were working as extended wings of the ruling dispensation at the centre. In many such cases, the timings of the cases lodged or arrests made have coincided with elections making it abundantly clear that they were politically motivated,” the opposition leaders said in the letter.

Sisodia was arrested for alleged corruption in framing Delhi’s liquor policy. In response to the AAP’s political vendetta argument, the BJP says even if he was the Education Minister, he couldn’t use his role as a cover for corruption.

“It is regrettable that even after Sisodia’s arrest, the Delhi government is not stopping its dirty politics in the name of education and has now stooped as low as to involving innocent school kids in it,” Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor said on Friday, referring to an alleged plan to set up “I Love Manish Sisodia” desks in Delhi government schools to gather support for their arrested leader, which the AAP has said is a fake news cooked up by the BJP to tarnish the image of Delhi’s ruling party.

Over the years, the central agencies have maintained they don’t arrest people on false charges and only let them go if they aren’t found guilty.
