BJP made revelations from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) alleging misleading statements and concealment of crucial information by the AAP leader.

Following the ED’s claims of “false and contradictory evidence” provided by Kejriwal during interrogation, the BJP labeled him as the “kingpin” in the liquor policy scandal. The onslaught intensified as reports surfaced of Kejriwal allegedly branding his AAP colleagues as “confused” regarding their statements.

The assault reached a crescendo as Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court granted the ED’s request for a 15-day judicial remand for Kejriwal, sending him to Tihar Jail until April 15. The ED specifically pointed to Kejriwal’s assertions about former AAP communication chief Vijay Nair’s reporting structure, contradicting Nair’s claims of working closely with the Delhi Chief Minister.

“Delhi’s liquor policy scenario is unfolding, with reports indicating Kejriwal’s dubious role. Will he resign or embark on a new political trajectory?” BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi queried, launching a scathing attack on the AAP leadership.

The BJP further lambasted Kejriwal over purported contradictions in his statements regarding ND Gupta, highlighting a pattern of evasiveness and obfuscation during the investigation.

Mocking Kejriwal’s political journey, Trivedi referenced the AAP leader’s shift from his mentor Anna Hazare to Lalu Prasad Yadav, drawing parallels with the disgraced former Bihar Chief Minister’s resignation amid corruption scandals.

Amid mounting pressure for Kejriwal’s resignation on “moral and Constitutional grounds,” the BJP intensified its offensive, leveraging the ED’s findings to undermine the credibility of the AAP leadership.

The relentless onslaught underscores the deepening political turmoil surrounding Kejriwal and the AAP, as allegations of corruption continue to cast a shadow over Delhi’s political landscape.
