Delhi Minister Kailash Gahlot Summoned by Enforcement Directorate

Days following the arrest of Delhi’s chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, the Enforcement Directorate has now summoned Delhi minister and AAP leader Kailash Gahlot for questioning in connection with a money-laundering probe related to the liquor policy case. Gahlot later appeared before the agency.

According to sources, Gahlot has been asked to appear for questioning and provide his statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). Reacting to the summons, BJP leader Virendra Sachdeva stated, “Another Delhi government Minister has been summoned (by ED) now. The truth will come forth to the public. (Delhi CM) Arvind Kejriwal and his party’s corrupt face is now in front of everyone.”

In response, AAP leader Dilip Kumar Pandey accused the BJP government of “dictatorship,” emphasizing the need for nationwide protest against what they perceive as BJP’s hooliganism and the arrest of Arvind Kejriwal.

Notably, AAP leaders Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh, and Arvind Kejriwal are currently in jail facing similar charges in the case. Kailash Gahlot, along with Atishi and Saurabh Bharadwaj, remains among the prominent AAP leaders who are not incarcerated.

The Enforcement Directorate’s action against Arvind Kejriwal came after he ignored nine summonses sent by the agency. Kejriwal is currently under the Enforcement Directorate’s custody until April 1. In a recent court appearance, he alleged that a ‘smokescreen’ of AAP being corrupt was being created in front of the nation.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been persistently demanding Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation as the Delhi chief minister on moral grounds amidst the ongoing legal proceedings.
