‘India’ alliance government will free judiciary from ‘pressure’, will ensure my release: Kejriwal

The Uncut

New Delhi. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said if the ‘India’ alliance comes to power, it will free the judiciary from the current “extreme pressure” and will also ensure his release from jail on June 5 as all the cases against him are fake. Are. After being released from Tihar Jail on interim bail, Kejriwal has been saying in his election rallies that if the opposition ‘India’ alliance wins, he will be freed from jail the day after the Lok Sabha election results are declared on June 4.

In an interview with PTI Video, Kejriwal was asked how he could make such a statement which implied that the ‘India’ alliance would twist the court to free him despite serious corruption charges against him. Kejriwal, in his first interview to any media establishment after being released on bail, said, “The judiciary is under a lot of pressure at this time. Everyone knows how much pressure she is working under now.” Asked if he meant that if the ‘India’ coalition government wins, it will also put pressure on the courts to release him, Kejriwal said, “We will not put any pressure but if the pressure is removed from the judiciary.” Then justice will start being served impartially.”

He said, “All the cases against me are fake. There is no money transaction anywhere. Not even a single penny has been traced. If there was corruption, then where did the money go?” Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on March 21 in a money laundering case related to his government’s excise policy. His former education minister Manish Sisodia is also in Tihar jail in this case. Apart from him, another minister Satyendra Jain is also lodged in Tihar.

Wife Sunita Kejriwal is not interested in politics, will not contest elections: Arvind Kejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday made it clear that there is no possibility of his wife contesting elections in future as she (Sunita) has no interest in active politics. However, she had come out aggressively after his arrest.

Arvind Kejriwal spoke in detail on various topics during an interview with ‘PTI-Bhasha’, including the “humiliation” during jail, the allegations leveled against him, the state of mind of the family during this period, the prospects of the opposition alliance ‘India’ in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, etc.

He said, “Sunita has supported me at every step of my life. I am fortunate to have a life partner like her. It is not easy to tolerate a crazy person like me.” He recalled that in 2000, I took leave from my job as Income Tax Commissioner to work in the slums of Delhi and then resigned to devote full time to social work.
Arvind Kejriwal said, “At that time I had no idea whether I would become the Chief Minister or form a party or contest elections. I was just encouraged and I worked for 10 years. Even then they supported me. Imagine what they must have gone through then.”
