Gopal Rai hits out at BJP over Kejriwal's arrest

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Minister Gopal Rai hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government on Tuesday and said that there is a lot of anger among the people of Delhi over the arrest of Arvind Kejriwal by the "dictatorial government".

The AAP leader alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party was hiding behind the police, adding that he posed another question, "Under one allegation, Arvind Kejriwal was jailed and Sarath Reddy was bailed. What is this, Khel?"

Rai said, "BJP doesn't want to answer this question. We (AAP) think that the people of Delhi are fighting against this Arvind Kejriwal arrest and the 'dictatorial government'".

"This fight will continue. Unless Prime Minister Modi answers how, under the same allegation, Arvind Kejriwal received jail and Sarath Reddy was granted bail, these protests will continue," he added.

P Sarath Chandra Reddy was the director of Aurobindo Pharma when he was arrested on November 10, 2022, in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case. The Delhi High Court later, in May 2023, granted bail to businessman P Sarath Chandra Reddy on medical grounds in a money laundering case related to the Delhi government's alleged excise scam.
