After the Delhi CM was sent to judicial custody, his wife Sunita Kejriwal said that the people of the country will answer to this dictatorship

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that what Prime Minister Narendra Modi is doing is not good for the country.

The CM, who was arrested in connection with a money laundering probe in the Delhi excise liquor policy case, was sent to judicial custody till April 15.

“What the PM is doing is not good for the country,” Kejriwal told reporters.

His remarks came a day after the Opposition’s show of strength and unity, in the backdrop of the arrest of Arvind Kejriwal on March 21.

Among the ones present in the court were AAP ministers Atishi, Saurabh Bhardwaj and Kejriwal’s wife Sunita Kejriwal.

After the Delhi CM was sent to judicial custody, his wife Sunita Kejriwal said, “Why has he been sent to jail? The people of the country will answer to this dictatorship.”

During the hearing at the Rouse Avenue Court on Monday, Additional Solicitor General SV Raju said that the federal agency is not seeking any further custody of the Delhi chief minister. Rather, the ASG said, “We’re asking for judicial custody.”

The federal agency arrested the Delhi CM on March 21 in the excise policy scam. He faces allegations of direct involvement in a conspiracy related to the formulation of excise policy favouring specific individuals.

Kejriwal Gave Evasive Replies During Interrogation: ED in Its Remand Paper

The plea listed “few of the glaring examples of evasive and misleading replies” given by Kejriwal.

“He (Kejriwal) stated that Vijay Nair did not report to him but to Aatishi Marlena and Saurav Bharadwaj and his interaction with Nair was limited,” it said.

The statements of Nair, however, revealed that he stayed in a cabinet minister’s bungalow and worked from the chief minister’s camp office, the remand application said.

“It was also put to the arrestee to explain that why would someone, who reported to other leaders of AAP, work from his camp office which anyways is meant for the work of the CM of Delhi and not for the party. Kejriwal evaded replying to this by claiming unawareness to the persons who work at the CM camp office,” it said.
