The first one was that the Enforcement Directorate, which has been investigating the alleged liquor rip-off during the last two years, has been unable to hint the alleged bribe cash or discover its path — some extent that AAP has made repeatedly. The opposite was the alleged coercion of witnesses, which too, was not directly touched upon throughout as we speak’s listening to.
