If corruption existed where did crore of rupees go?: CM Arvind Kejriwal


Delhi, Jan 04: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, responding to the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) summons on Thursday, asserted that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is not genuinely pursuing a fair investigation but engaging in political intimidation. Kejriwal questioned the absence of evidence indicating corruption, stating, “If corruption really occurred, then where did crores of Rupees go? The truth is that there was no corruption.”

This statement was made during a press conference following late-night claims by several Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, including Atishi and the party’s national general secretary (organisation), Sandeep Pathak, suggesting a potential raid at Kejriwal’s residence and his subsequent arrest. Party leaders reportedly convened to discuss these developments the previous evening. Despite concerns about possible arrest, Kejriwal is scheduled to embark on a 3-day tour in Gujarat.

Kejriwal, for the third consecutive time on Wednesday, opted not to appear before the Enforcement Directorate in the Delhi Excise Policy Case. Instead, he sent a letter expressing his willingness to cooperate with the investigation but contending that the agency’s notice was illegal. The Chief Minister also raised questions about the timing of the ED’s notice, pointing out, “Why are notices sent right before the polls?”
