BJP president Virendra Sachdeva said that the way AAP leaders are trying to portray that Kejriwal has been acquitted, they are once again “misleading” the people of Delhi and “betraying” them.

NEW DELHI: The Delhi unit of BJP on Friday said that getting interim bail does not mean that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is not guilty or acquitted and moreover he will be soon back in the jail like any other criminal.

“We respect the Supreme Court’s decision but getting interim bail does not mean that the Chief Minister is not guilty,” Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva said.

According to him, sometimes even criminals are released on parole, and it is a legal process, which does not prove that Kejriwal, who was the main culprit in the multi-million rupee liquor scam, is innocent.

“Truth may have been delayed but it’s not defeated because the truth is that only Kejriwal is responsible for the liquor scam in Delhi, pushing youth into addiction, and bringing in a new liquor policy to fill his pockets,” the Delhi BJP chief said.

He said that the way Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders are trying to portray that Kejriwal has been acquitted, they are once again “misleading” the people of Delhi and “betraying” them.

Sachdeva said that the Aam Aadmi Party has no local issues for the elections because as a state government, they have done nothing in the last 10 years, so they created a stir in the name of Arvind Kejriwal being jailed and are now trying to create a deceptive atmosphere of coming out of jail, which the people of Delhi will not buy, and BJP candidates will win on all 7 seats in the upcoming elections.

BJP’s candidate from northeast Delhi constituency, Manoj Tiwari, came down heavily on the AAP supremo, calling him a “tained” leader. “The Supreme Court on Friday clearly depicted the scam of Kejriwal by releasing him on conditional bail on a personal bond of `50,000. Neither can he go to the Chief Minister’s office nor the Delhi Secretariat...he cannot even talk to any officer or witness related to the scam he has committed,” the BJP leader wrote on social media.

AAP leaders are once again misleading the people of Delhi and betraying them, he said.

“AAP has no local issues for the elections because as a state government, they have done nothing in the last 10 years, so they created a stir in the name of Kejriwal being jailed and are now trying to create a deceptive atmosphere of coming out of jail, which the people of Delhi will not buy.

He has only been granted interim bail for election purposes. BJP’s candidate from South Delhi constituency and Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly, Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, Kejriwal got bail for election campaigning and would have to return to jail after that.

A Supreme Court bench of justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta said Kejriwal, arrested in a money laundering case linked to the alleged excise policy scam, will have to return to jail on June 2. June 1 is the last day of the seven-phase Lok Sabha elections. The votes will be counted on June 4.

‘Tained leader’
