New Delhi: In an interview with a news agency, Union Home Minister Amit Shah asserted that the interim bail granted to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wasn’t merely a “routine judgment,” suggesting that many perceive it as granting special treatment to the AAP leader.


When asked about Kejriwal’s recent aggressive stance in the election campaign post his release from jail, Shah remarked, “Currently, he finds himself entangled in another issue,” referring to the ongoing controversy surrounding the alleged assault of AAP MP Swati Maliwal. “Let him resolve that matter first, then we’ll observe the subsequent developments.”

The Union Home Minister also took strong exception to the AAP supremo’s repeated assertions that if the INDIA bloc or AAP wins, he need not go back to jail. Shah termed his statement contempt of court. In the interview with ANI, Amit Shah stated that in his view, it is clearly contempt of court and he is suggesting that the Supreme Court doesn’t jail those who win in elections. Whichever judge granted him the bail, he needs to think about how his judgment is getting misused.

Shah also lashed out at the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for contesting the election from the Rae Bareli seat as well. He said, if he had to contest from this seat as well, he should have announced it while campaigning in Wayanad; he should have informed the voters about his intention. Shah claimed that he was contesting from Rae Bareli as he knew that he would be defeated in Wayanad, as post-poll surveys indicated that.

Shah also expressed confidence that combining all the five southern states, the BJP would emerge as the single largest party in the election.
