AAP Leader Saurabh Bharadwaj Responds to ED Summons for Arvind Kejriwal, Accuses BJP of Wanting Entire Party Behind Bars

In response to the recent Enforcement Directorate (ED) summons to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in an alleged liquor scam case, AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj has made strong statements, suggesting that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seeks to incarcerate all Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) members. Bharadwaj’s remarks come amid concerns about the possibility of Kejriwal’s arrest.

Bharadwaj expressed, “It would be decided by the senior leaders of the party. But if the whole party is in jail, then the government and the party would run from jail.”

He accused the BJP of wanting to hinder the AAP’s initiatives, saying, “And this is what the BJP wants – everyone should be in jail… They want free education, free electricity, free water, free pilgrimage, hospitals, and mohalla clinics to stop, but Arvind Kejriwal will not let this happen.”

Bharadwaj also raised questions about the potential misuse of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA), stating, “Now it is disclosed that whoever can be an obstacle for the BJP, they and their party leaders would be sent to jail, one way or another. PMLA is a law in which anyone can be sent to jail for years without any proof. When the whole nation is able to see this, why don’t the courts understand this? Are the courts not able to see that the opposition leaders are being sent to jail one by one… In such a situation, we can only hope from the courts that they would stop the misuse of this law.”

The ED issued the summons to CM Kejriwal under PMLA, and he is expected to provide his statement at 11 am on November 2. This is the first time that the agency has summoned Kejriwal, who was previously questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the same case in April. In addition, the Supreme Court recently dismissed the bail petition of AAP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in connection with the case, and in October, the ED arrested AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh in relation to the case.
