Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday, October 30, to appear for interrogation over the state’s excise policy issue on November 2.
Manish Sisodia, the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party and a former deputy chief minister of Delhi, was denied bail by the Supreme Court on the same day that the summons was issued in this case.
“It’s clear that Centre’s only goal is to finish AAP,” party spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj mentioned in conversation to PTI. “For this, they are leaving no stone unturned, including creating a fake case. The idea is to send Arvind Kejriwal to jail and destroy the Aam Aadmi Party,” he further added.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had called Kejriwal for interrogation in the same matter back in April. On October 5, party leader Sanjay Singh was also taken into custody in addition to Sisodia.
