New Delhi, January 23

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said he had been informed by sources that the Enforcement Department (ED) might arrest his cabinet minister Satyendar Jain just before the assembly elections in Punjab.

However, he said AAP leaders and workers did not fear these agencies as they had done no wrong.

“From our sources we have got to know that right before the Punjab polls in the coming few days the ED is going to arrest Satyendar Jain (Delhi Health and Home Minister). They are most welcome. Previously too, the Centre had conducted raids at Satyendar Jain but got nothing,” Kejriwal said in a virtual press conference here.

He alleged that whenever the BJP realised that it was losing, it unleashed all the central agencies on its opponents.

“Since there are elections, raids and arrests will be made. We do not fear such raids and arrests because we have done nothing wrong,” Kejriwal said.

He said that previously raids were conducted on his premises, his deputy Manish Sisodia's premises, Jain's residence and also AAP's 21 MLAs were arrested but they got nothing.

Punjab goes to polls on February 20.
