He said it is very unfortunate that those who do good work in the country are harassed "like this". "That is why our country has not yet become number-one," he stated.

"These people are troubled by the excellent work of Delhi's education and health. That is why the Health Minister and Education Minister of Delhi have been arrested so that the good work of education health can be stopped," he said in another tweet.

Sisodia further claimed that the truth will come out in court.

Responding to the raids, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, "CBI is welcome. We will give full cooperation. Searches/raids took place earlier too, but nothing was found. Nothing will be found now too."

Last month, Delhi Lt Governor V K Saxena had recommended a CBI probe into alleged irregularities in implementation of Excuse Policy 2021-22. He had also suspended 11 Excise officials in the matter.

Sisodia too had demanded a probe by CBI in the alleged irregularities in the policy. "The CBI has come. They are welcome. We are dead honest. Shaping up future of lakhs of children. It's very unfortunate that those who do good work are harassed like this. That's why our country has not become number one in the world," Sisodia tweeted.

He said the CBI will be extended full cooperation and asserted that several cases were lodged on him but nothing came out in those and nothing will come out this time too.
