NewsThe AAP claims there was a plot to arrest Arvind Kejriwal

Date:

Delhi, declined to respond to an additional Enforcement Directorate summons on Wednesday. The head of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was questioned by the investigative agency on January 3 in a money laundering case related to excise policies. The Chief Minister called the notification “illegal” but stated he was willing to assist with the probe in a statement to the Enforcement Directorate.

The investigation agency allegedly wanted to stop Chief Minister Kejriwal from running for office and planned to arrest him, according to Kejriwal’s party. It further claimed that corrupt politicians were unpunishable by the government, which sought to detain opposition leaders. The party also claimed that no action was taken by the investigation agency against those who allied themselves with the BJP and that politicians would not be arrested if they cooperated with the investigations. In the meantime, security surrounding the AAP’s Rouse Avenue office in Delhi was stepped up. The Delhi Chief Minister came under fire from BJP National Spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla after the incident, accusing him of having “something to hide.”

Arvind Kejriwal has omitted the third summons today once more. Manish Sisodiya and Sanjay Singh have been denied bail by the court, and they have proven that there is a money trail. In spite of this,they are continuing to play the victim role—he wrote on X and shared a video. Congressman Udit Raj, meanwhile, said that the investigation authorities were pressuring the opposition leaders rather than carrying out their duties.

According to Udit Raj, who was speaking with the news agency, the ED is conducting searches on Hemant Soren’s accomplices in Jharkhand, Just prior to the elections, Bhupesh Baghel, the previous chief minister of Chhattisgarh, received letters from the Enforcement Directorates and was the target of bogus accusations. Arvind Kejriwal belongs to the opposition alliance as well. It is true that these organizations are applying pressure to the opposition leaders instead of carrying out their duties.

Priyanka Kakkar, the Chief National Spokesperson for the AAP, stated on Tuesday that the party would respond to the Enforcement Directorate’s summons to Kejriwal in accordance with the law. The party spokesperson, Priyanka Kakkar, responded, “Our legal team will be better equipped to answer this question, when asked if Kejriwal would show up for the January 3 summons. We will follow the law when we act. Kejriwal had previously received two summonses for November 2 and December 21 but had declined to appear before the federal authorities on both occasions. This was the third notice. Kejriwal disregarded the earlier summonses from the ED, referring to them as illegal and politically driven.
