Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal was on Monday summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on November 2 for questioning in connection with the state’s excise policy case.
The summon was issued on the same day the Supreme Court denied bail to AAP leader and former deputy CM Manish Sisodia in the case.
Saurabh Bharadwaj, spokesperson for the party was quoted by PTI as saying, “It's clear that Centre's only goal is to finish AAP.”
“For this, they are leaving no stone unturned, including creating a fake case. The idea is to send Arvind Kejriwal to jail and destroy the Aam Aadmi Party,” he added.
It may be noted that in April, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had summoned Arvind Kejriwal for questioning in connection with the case. Party leader Sanjay Singh was also arrested, apart from Sisodia, on October 5.
