AAP Leaders Suggest Kejriwal Lead Delhi Govt from Jail if Arrested by ED

Aam Aadmi Party leaders have urged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to continue in the top role even if he is arrested. Following a meeting of party leaders to discuss the ongoing dispute with the Enforcement Directorate, the statement was made. In a money laundering investigation connected to the purported excise police scam, Kejriwal was called in by the investigative agency last week.

“The way the atmosphere is, very soon we all will be going to jail. The kind of preparations PM Modi is doing…rest of the cabinet colleagues along with CM will be going to jail. Maybe Atishi will be in jail number 1…I will be in jail 2 and someone else will be in jail 3…so we will get together for cabinet meetings. We will hold meetings and decisions will be taken and those MLAs who will be outside jail, they will implement them,” AAP Minister Saurabh Bhardwaj jibed on Monday afternoon.

Earlier this month, the AAP chief disregarded an ED summons, claiming it was “politically motivated.” Meanwhile, party leaders maintain that the CM would be taken into custody within the next few days.

Top leaders, including ministers Saurabh Bharadwaj and Atishi, attended a meeting of AAP MLAs called by the chief minister on Monday to tackle the ongoing situation. After the meeting, Bharadwaj stated that party chiefs believed Arvind Kejriwal posed a threat to both the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“The BJP knows that it cannot oust Kejriwal from power through elections and it can only be done by hatching a conspiracy,” he stated to reporters.

Meanwhile, colleague minister Atishi said the party would go to court to get permission for Kejriwal to work from jail if he was detained.
