Kejriwal defies summons by Enforcement Directorate

Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party national convener Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday defied an Enforcement Directorate summons in the liquor policy case that has landed several of his party colleagues in jail.

In a reply to the summons, Kejriwal called it “unsustainable in law”, and headed to campaign for the Assembly polls in Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh, with Punjab’s AAP chief minister Bhagwant Mann.

“Has the BJP, which has been in power across the entire country, accomplished anything in all these years?” Kejriwal told a rally in Singrauli.

“In Madhya Pradesh, they have been in power for 15 years, and in Gujarat for 30 years, yet they have not achieved much. These people neither want to do any work themselves nor allow others to do it.”

Kejriwal added: “You can arrest Kejriwal’s physical body, but how will you arrest Kejriwal’s ideas? You might arrest one Kejriwal, but how will you arrest the thousands, lakhs and crores of Kejriwals?”
