Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener, Arvind Kejriwal, is unlikely to comply with the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) summons for the fifth time. The ED recently issued a renewed summons in connection to an alleged money laundering case related to the Delhi excise policy. Kejriwal had previously skipped four summonses issued by the agency over the past four months, asserting that they were “illegal.”
The AAP’s legal team is reportedly reviewing the latest summons. Instead of appearing before the ED, Kejriwal is expected to participate in a planned protest alongside Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann outside the BJP headquarters. The protest aims to address alleged irregularities in the Chandigarh mayoral polls.
Kejriwal had previously dismissed the ED summonses, terming them “illegal.” The party’s consistent stance against what they perceive as unwarranted legal actions is evident in their legal team’s ongoing examination of the latest summons.
