Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, a day after being remanded into the custody of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) until March 28, has taken swift legal action by moving the Delhi High Court seeking an urgent hearing on his arrest. Kejriwal has denounced his arrest as “illegal” and has formally challenged the ED’s move.

In a parallel development, Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Minister Atishi disclosed that the party has urgently sought an audience with the Election Commission to ensure a fair playing field in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Atishi expressed concern over recent events, including the sealing of the AAP office and an Income Tax Department raid on the home of one of their MLAs, which she perceived as attempts to disrupt the party’s election campaign.

Despite his detention, Arvind Kejriwal sent a resolute message from ED custody, affirming his commitment to serving the nation. He stated, “Every drop of blood is for the nation,” and pledged to continue his work tirelessly, whether inside or outside jail. Kejriwal’s message, conveyed by his wife Sunita Kejriwal, assured supporters of his imminent release and reiterated his track record of fulfilling promises.

The legal battle initiated by Kejriwal and the AAP’s efforts to ensure electoral fairness underscore the escalating tensions and political maneuvering ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. These developments are likely to galvanize supporters and intensify debates on democratic principles and accountability in India’s political landscape.
