Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal challenges Enforcement Directorate in a letter, accusing BJP of orchestrating a political ploy to arrest him and disrupt Lok Sabha election campaigning. AAP denies corruption allegations.
New Delhi, January 18, 2024 – In a recent development, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has penned a letter to the Enforcement Directorate, raising concerns over what he perceives as the BJP’s attempt to impede his election campaigning for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
The letter questions the rationale behind the ED’s summons, emphasizing that Arvind Kejriwal is not facing any charges. Kejriwal contends that the BJP’s motive is to orchestrate his arrest, potentially hindering his active participation in the electoral process.
Highlighting the alleged bias, the letter points out that many corrupt leaders find refuge in the BJP, leading to the swift closure of their legal cases. Kejriwal asserts that neither he nor any of his party leaders have engaged in corrupt practices, vehemently denying any possibility of them aligning with the BJP.
The missive calls for transparency and fairness in the handling of legal matters, urging the ED to reevaluate the necessity of the summons and arrest threats against a leader who, according to the correspondence, is not under investigation for any wrongdoing.
As the political discourse intensifies in the run-up to the elections, this exchange further underscores the contentious relationship between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The coming days are likely to witness heightened scrutiny and debate over the intersection of politics and legal proceedings.
