ED arrested Kejriwal on March 21 in a case linked to money laundering and corruption. Now he is in Tihar Jail seeking for Bail to campaign Lok Sabha Polls. Three phases of elections have almost passed.

Well The Supreme Court is likely to give its verdict today on interim bail to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who was arrested on March 21 by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

“Rajya Sabha MP and Senior Supreme Court Advocate Kapil Sibal says, “Yesterday, ED presented its side before the Supreme Court and said that Arvind Kejriwal should not be granted interim bail because the right to campaign is a legal right, not a Constitutional right…It is correct.

But the law also provides that if someone has been awarded punishment and court says that they are staying the punishment, he can take part in campaigning…Ask them how Hardik Patel contested the election.

Hardik Patel was convicted, High Court had stayed it. Hardik approached the Supreme Court and the Court stayed it. Hardik contested the election and joined the BJP. Someone, against whom you have evidence and punishment, has the right (to campaign) if Court stays it. But someone who is just an accused can’t be given the stay…What kind of politics is ED doing?…” as per the statement and reports.

About Delhi liquor scam

The Delhi Liquor Scam is a political scandal concerning the Delhi Government, which paved its way through the introduction of Delhi’s Excise Policy from 2021 to 2022.

This policy brought in private firms and enterprise companies into the retail liquor sectors. The allegations involve favouring the owners and shareholders of private sectors, waivers and reduction of license fee and creation of numerous licenses to all the new incoming enterprises, and bribery.

The Excise policy 2021–22 created by the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), projected it as a reform in the excise and retail liquor sector, thereby boosting the revenue by Rs 9,500 crores. This policy mainly focused on moving out the retail sector, and making way to large private sectors and firms. The policy was structured by a group of ministers from the cabinet, and the draft was approved and accepted by the government in March 2021.
