Kejriwal has been issued summons to appear before the ED for questioning in a money laundering case linked to the alleged excise policy scam.The agency will record his statement once he deposes before the investigating officer of the case in Delhi.
“We are getting information that when Arvind Kejriwal appears before ED on November 2, ED will arrest and put him in jail,” claimed Atishi.
Stating that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the PM want to finish AAP, Atishi said, “Arvind Kejriwal will be arrested not because there is any case against him, it is because the PM fears him. BJP and PM Modi know that they cannot defeat AAP in polls. Now to finish AAP, its leaders are being put in jail. Putting all the big leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party behind bars means only one thing that they (BJP) to finish AAP.”

Meanwhile, AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj said that party leaders and workers are not afraid of going to jail.
“It is clear that the Central government wants to finish the Aam Aadmi Party. Now, they want to put Arvind Kejriwal in jail.”
