“The Narendra Modi government is misusing Central agencies to peg back the AAP’s electoral campaign in Punjab. I have reports that ED is preparing to arrest Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain before the elections,” Kejriwal said in a recorded video message.
He accused the Centre of targeting Aam Aadmi Party after realising that the BJP “will lose” in the upcoming polls. He said the ED had earlier raided the residence of Jain twice, but found nothing. The raids had been conducted by the ED at Jain’s residence in 2017 ahead of the last Assembly elections in Punjab.
Kejriwal said the AAP would not be deterred by tactics of the Centre. Jain is at present campaigning for the AAP in Punjab.
Meanwhile, the BJP hit back at Kejriwal, alleging he was trying to put pressure on the agency and gain public sympathy with his statement though he was aware of the “concrete evidence” against Jain.
Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta alleged that Kejriwal “masters the art of media manipulation” and his statement showed that he was aware of being in the wrong.
