In a growing political spat, leaders from both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress targeted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his decision to skip the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) summons related to the alleged Delhi liquor policy scam. The political jabs intensified as the controversy unfolded.
Sambit Patra, a prominent BJP spokesperson, referred to Kejriwal as “an ocean of corruption,” portraying him as a symbol of alleged malpractice within his administration. Patra’s comments underscored the BJP’s strong stance on the issue.
On the other side of the political spectrum, Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit reminisced about “the Kejriwal of the Anna movement,” implying a contrast between Kejriwal’s earlier persona and his current actions. Dikshit further suggested that Kejriwal appeared to be fearful and on the run, given his decision to ignore the ED’s summons.
Undeterred by the controversy and political attacks, Kejriwal continued with his political campaign in Madhya Pradesh’s Singrauli. During his public appearance, he publicly challenged the Central government to arrest the “thinking of Kejriwal.” This statement reinforces Kejriwal’s defiance in the face of the summons and his determination to carry on with his political activities.
The situation continues to evolve, with Kejriwal’s confrontation with the ED and the resulting political commentary making headlines in the national discourse.
