Assam Chief Minister Biswa Sharma filed a report against Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Sisodia

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma on Friday filed an affidavit in court in the criminal defamation case filed against Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

Sharma gave his statement in the Chief Judicial Magistrate Kamrup Rural Court and several witnesses in the case will record their statements later this month.

“In June 2022, the Hon’ble Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Mr. Manish Sisodia, in a press conference leveled some serious allegations against Mr. Himanta Biswa Sharma, who is the Chief Minister of Assam. Mr Himanta Biswa Sharma, who was aggrieved by the allegations made by Mr Sisodia in that press conference, has decided to file a criminal defamation case against him, saying that some of the allegations were baseless or untrue. The case was registered some time back and the date for recording his preliminACHI statement was fixed today. His statements were recorded by the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Comr. Rural,” said Assam’s Advocate General Debojit Lone Saikia.

On 4 June, Sisodia in a press conference alleged that Sharma was involved in a scam. He said that in 2020, during the Covid pandemic, when Assam’s current chief minister was the health minister, he had allotted contracts for the supply of PPE kits to JCP Industries, co-owned by Sharma’s wife Riniki Bhuyan Sharma. He further alleged that JCP Industries was ordered to supply PPE at Rs 900, while others were supplying PPE at Rs 600.

When Sharma questioned the allegations, there was no explanation from Sisodia.
The Assam Chief Minister decided to register a case of criminal defamation under sections 499, 500 and 501 of the Indian Penal Code.

Riniki Bhuyan Sharma and Sisodia v. Civil Judge no. 1 of Kamrup Metropolitan District on June 21 on the same charges.

Sharma’s counsel argued that JCP Industries was not involved in any effort to supply PPE kits to Assam’s NHM or footed any bill. As part of its corporate social responsibility activities, it has donated around 1,500 PPE kits to NHM, Assam.
