In a recent address, Arvind Kejriwal, the convener of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Chief Minister of Delhi, boldly declared that AAP is poised to surpass the Congress and BJP, positioning itself as the third-largest party in the country. Kejriwal, known for his straightforward approach, addressed concerns about a potential arrest in connection with an ongoing liquor probe, emphasizing that he is open to the idea of running the government from jail or even resigning from his CM post.
Kejriwal, underscoring his lack of attachment to power, reminded party members of his past resignation on the 49th day of his previous term. He urged them to seek public opinion on whether he should step down if arrested, emphasizing the need to avoid falling into alleged conspiracies orchestrated by the BJP. Kejriwal asserted, “Go to every house in Delhi and take people’s opinion on this. But BJP should not get one Lok Sabha seat from Delhi this time — even if I am in jail.”
Addressing the alleged liquor scam, Kejriwal dismissed it as a ploy by the BJP to discredit AAP leaders. He challenged the BJP by stating, “Arrest me and see AAP win from jail.” According to Kejriwal, the BJP’s strategy is to incarcerate prominent AAP leaders, including himself, to gain an edge in elections.
Proudly acknowledging AAP’s achievements, Kejriwal labeled the party as the fastest-growing in the world, confidently predicting its ascent to national prominence. He congratulated party workers for their dedication and resilience, claiming that AAP would soon surpass both the BJP and the Congress to lead the country.
In a daring statement, Kejriwal asserted that leaders like Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh would receive bail within 24 hours if they joined the BJP. He alleged a larger conspiracy targeting regional party leaders, including Mamata Banerjee, Tejashwi Yadav, and Hemant Soren, ahead of elections to impede their campaigning efforts.
Kejriwal’s unwavering stance against potential arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) was evident as he rejected the summons, highlighting that jail holds no fear for him or his party. Drawing parallels to historical figures like Bhagat Singh, Kejriwal urged his supporters not to be intimidated by the prospect of arrest.
Arvind Kejriwal’s fearless rhetoric and AAP’s determination to rise above political challenges showcase a party with a bold vision for the future, positioning itself as a formidable force in Indian politics.
