Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Wednesday slammed the BJP-led government over the arrest of AAP leader Sanjay Singh in connection with the Delhi excise policy case and said that it’s the nature of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “scare through the Enforcement Directorate (ED).”
AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP, Sanjay Singh, was taken into custody after a day-long interrogation by ED officials at his Delhi residence on Wednesday. He was later brought to the ED office.
“It has become the nature of PM Modi Ji that wherever the public does not support them, they start scaring through ED. But we are made of different soil and are not afraid…Sanjay Singh Zindabad”, Mann posted on X.
Singh was taken into custody from his residence after a day-long interrogation by ED officials.
The AAP leader was escorted by the ED officials amid lusty sloganeering from his party supporters, who had gathered to protest the action by the agency.
The arrest drew a scathing response from Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal.
Earlier, launching a no-holds-barred attack on the BJP-led Centre over the arrest of Sanjay Singh, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said it has brought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “frustrations” to the fore.
He informed further that the ruling party in the national capital will mount a legal challenge against Singh’s arrest.
The AAP national convenor, who visited Singh’s family members at his Delhi residence on Wednesday, claimed that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) found nothing during a search of his address but still placed him under arrest.
“The ED officials searched his entire house but found nothing. However, they still put him under arrest in the evening. The arrest shows PM Modi’s growing desperation and frustration as the elections are drawing near. The coming together of the Opposition forces under the INDIA bloc has got him rattled. Sanjay’s arrest has only bared PM Modi’s frustrations,” Kejriwal told reporters after meeting the AAP leader’s kin on Wednesday.
“Sanjay Singh never shied away when it came to raising his voice against PM Modi’s corruption, and this is precisely why he was first suspended from the Rajya Sabha and now arrested. I fear that many more leaders could be arrested before the next Lok Sabha elections. However, Sanjay Singh is a fighter, and he will soldier on undaunted. We move court against his arrest,” the Delhi CM added
