The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has confirmed that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will not resign as the Chief Minister of Delhi, following his arrest by Enforcement Directorate officials in connection with the excise policy case.

AAP leader and Delhi minister Atishi stated that Kejriwal will continue as the CM and run the government from jail if needed.

The Bharatiya Janata Party, accusing the AAP of a “political witch-hunt” against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has demanded Kejriwal’s immediate resignation as CM.

Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva praised Kejriwal’s arrest as the defeat of corruption and demanded his resignation.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest has sparked reactions from opposition parties. Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury condemned Kejriwal’s arrest, stating that he is the second sitting CM of the INDIA bloc to be arrested by central agencies.

Yechury criticized Modi and the BJP for panic over people’s rejection in the ongoing elections and claimed that opposition leaders who defected and joined the BJP are protected and patronised.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan condemned Kejriwal’s arrest as an attempt to muzzle opposition voices during the election process, highlighting the cowardice of those who fear the democratic process.

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor expressed shock at the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the freeze on Congress bank accounts, indicating a systematic attempt to subvert Indian democracy during the general elections.

AAP leader Atishi announced plans to move the Supreme Court for an urgent night hearing and called for a “revolution to overthrow the dictatorial government at the Centre.”
