Arvind Kejriwal Released from Jail, Thanks Supreme Court

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was released from Tihar Jail on Friday after receiving interim bail from the Supreme Court. He expressed gratitude to the court and outlined his plans for the coming days.

In a brief address, Kejriwal announced that he would visit the Hanuman Temple in Connaught Place at 11 am on Saturday, followed by a press conference at 1 o'clock in the party office. He emphasized the need to protect the country from dictatorship.

Kejriwal's interim bail comes with conditions, including refraining from fulfilling his chief ministerial responsibilities and making any statements regarding the liquor scam. He has been granted bail until the final phase of general election voting on June 1.

The decision to grant interim bail to Kejriwal has been welcomed by various opposition parties, including the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). AAP leaders held a press conference in Delhi to celebrate the court's decision, calling it a victory for truth, the constitution, and democracy. They expressed gratitude to the Supreme Court for upholding the values of the Constitution.

Statements of support for Kejriwal are pouring in from across the country. Congress leader Pawan Kheda welcomed the decision and expressed hope for justice in other cases. SP leader Akhilesh Yadav hailed it as a victory of truth, while West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee deemed it beneficial for the ongoing elections.

However, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has reminded that Kejriwal will have to return to jail on June 2 in a corruption case. BJP leaders emphasized that interim bail does not imply innocence and stated their confidence in winning all seven seats in Delhi.
