BJP threatening us to leave INDIA bloc, otherwise Kejriwal will be arrested in 4 days: Atishi | Delhi News


Senior AAP leader Atishi on Thursday alleged that the BJP has been “threatening” AAP leaders to leave the INDIA alliance right away, otherwise the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) will arrest Chief Minister Arvind Kerjwal in the next few days.

She also mentioned that talks on seat-sharing have reached the final stage, and it will be done in the next couple of days. Both the AAP and Congress will make an official announcement on the same very soon, Atishi added.

Atishi, while addressing a press conference at the party office, said: “As you all know that the seat-sharing between the AAP and the Congress has reached the final stage, and will be announced within the next two days. But ever since this news is out, AAP MLAs have started getting messages from the BJP, threatening them to quit the INDIA alliance… If they do not leave the bloc immediately, the CBI will issue notice to CM Arvind Kejriwal under CrPC Section 41A, either on Saturday or Monday…”

Even text messages and calls on the same have started pouring in from Wednesday evening. “The AAP is being threatened that if the party contests the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in alliance with the Congress, both the CBI and the ED will arrest Kerjiwal in the next four days…,” Atishi said.

“This is democracy… Any party has the right to make an alliance and fight the elections… If you think that you can scare AAP and Arvind Kerjiwal by threatening and arresting (us)… then you are making a big mistake… AAP and Arvind Kerjiwal ji are not going to get scared of your threats… Even if you arrest all ministers and MLAs, new AAP workers will take charge and stand for the people, the democracy, and the country…” she said.

Festive offer

Asked about who (from the BJP) was/were sending these messages, and if the AAP has any evidence, Atishi said, “See, they send these messages sometimes through a relative or party workers… You do not carry a recorder everywhere… Like one goes for jogging, walking or talking to someone over a cup of coffee… cannot keep a recorder handy… We are public representatives and meet different people all day — from the party office to the camp office… We do not sit with a tape recorder… So, this question of giving evidence does not make sense…”

Responding to Atishi’s allegation, Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva said: “Both the AAP and Congress and their alliance are already defeated parties… BJP is not scared of their already defeated alliance, and the party knows it will fight the polls and get a hundred per cent win… Both the parties do not trust each other and they are putting allegations against us… The AAP-Congress alliance is the last thing that BJP cares about… Everyone knows Arvind Kerjiwal and Congress are looting public money, and the CBI and ED are just doing their job…”
