New Delhi, November 2

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who had been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate to appear for questioning on November 2, skipped the questioning.

He will take part in a roadshow at Singrauli in Madhya Pradesh along with his Punjab counterpart Bhagwant Mann.

The Delhi Chief Minister demanded that the ED withdraw his notice and summon him for questioning, claiming it was “illegal and politically motivated”.

The Delhi Chief Minister’s office said Kejriwal, in response to the ED notice, had termed it “illegal and politically motivated” and aimed at preventing him from campaigning in the election-bound states.

Kejriwal also claimed that the notice was sent to him at the behest of the BJP.

A large number of personnel have been deployed in central Delhi as part of police security arrangements to prevent AAP workers from gathering around the ED office.

The ED has summoned Kejriwal for questioning in a money laundering case related to the alleged excise tax scam.

The CBI and Enforcement Directorate are probing the Delhi government’s now scrapped excise policy for 2021-2022, which allegedly favored certain liquor traders, a claim the AAP has strongly denied. With PTI inputs
