The Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday morning strongly reacted to the Aam Aadmi Party’s remark that Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will run the government from jail, saying only “gangs” run from inside the prison. Bharatiya Janata Party MP Manoj Tiwari claimed that the people of Delhi are distributing sweets to celebrate Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest. He said the AAP chief had looted the national capital.

“He has given his life to bring Delhi to the brink of misery. The people of Delhi are very angry with him and that’s why sweets were distributed after his arrest. His government has done no work in Delhi and they have only looted and filled their pockets. Kejriwal has looted Delhi,” he told ANI.

The Enforcement Directorate detained Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday night in relation to the liquor policy case. He was the current chief minister to have served time in prison.

Arvind Kejriwal will remain Delhi’s chief minister, according to the AAP, which also said that he will lead the government from behind bars.

For moral reasons, the BJP has called for Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation.

“Those who are repeatedly saying they will run the government from jail, then remember, we have seen gangs being run from jail and not the government,” Manoj Tiwari said.

AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj today claimed his party wants Arvind Kejriwal to continue.

“Arvind Kejriwal will do what the public will say. He has always made major decisions based on what people have said. Before making this decision, he contacted all his MLAs, held meetings and met the councillors. We also spoke with the people in all wards. Everyone said that Arvind Kejriwal will continue as the CM,” he said.

BJP leader Sambit Patra said that Arvind Kejriwal is being punished for being corrupt.

“As far as corruption is concerned, it has gone up to the brim. It’s for sure that when you are so corrupt, you will be punished for it. From Rouse Avenue Court to Delhi High Court to Supreme Court, Arvind Kejriwal and his team went to all these courts but they didn’t get relief. They even moved to the Supreme Court, but were forced to withdraw their application. He has now been sent to remand by the lower court yesterday,” he said.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh today said the BJP was afraid of the INDIA bloc ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

“The arrest of Jharkhand Chief Minister Champai Soren and Delhi Chief Minister is an attack on democracy and our constitution,” he added.

Arvind Kejriwal was placed under the Enforcement Directorate’s supervision until March 28 by a Delhi court on Friday.

The AAP has called on its followers and allies in the INDIA bloc to demonstrate against Arvind Kejriwal’s apprehension at Shaheedi Park this afternoon.

All AAP MLAs, council members, office bearers, and INDIA bloc representatives will assemble at Shaheedi Park on Saturday at 10:00 a.m., according to Delhi Minister Gopal. Bhagwant Mann, the chief minister of Punjab, is anticipated to join the protest as well.

Security for the AAP protest has been arranged by the Delhi Police.
