BJP Demands Arvind Kejriwal's Resignation Over Ongoing Legal Issues

New Delhi, 02 April - The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has called for the resignation of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, citing moral grounds amidst his ongoing legal troubles.

During a press conference on Tuesday, BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia criticized Kejriwal's conduct, stating that his repeated appearances in court (nine times) warranted his resignation. Bhatia highlighted past instances where resignations were demanded from other party members, such as when Manish Sisodia and Satyendra Jain faced legal issues.

Bhatia questioned the double standards in politics, stating, "Now that Arvind Kejriwal himself has gone to jail, he is talking about running the government from jail. Why are there double standards today? He should also have resigned." He emphasized the importance of upholding democratic values and respecting the Constitution.

Regarding Kejriwal's legal issues, Bhatia mentioned a recent case where the Delhi High Court denied him bail and suggested his involvement in a liquor scam. Bhatia expressed that the citizens of Delhi are increasingly dissatisfied with what they perceive as rampant corruption.

He also criticized Kejriwal's earlier promises, recalling his pledge to resign if accused of corruption and his commitment to frugal governance. Bhatia remarked, "Kejriwal had said that he will not take security, he will not take a car or bungalow but you have built Sheesh Mahal."

Bhatia concluded by referencing the Prime Minister's pledge to hold corrupt individuals accountable, emphasizing that Kejriwal should not be an exception.
