Urging the electorate to vote for INDIA bloc candidates in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Wednesday that if they vote for the INDIA bloc candidates then he would not have to go to jail.
While addressing a roadshow in the national capital in support of the INDIA bloc’s Congress candidate from Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha seat Jai Prakash Aggarwal, Kejriwal said, “They (BJP) did everything to break me inside (Tihar Jail). Now they are saying Kejriwal has to go to jail again. It’s in your hands that I will go to jail or not. On May 25, if you press the ‘Kamal’ button I will have to go to jail but if you vote in support of the INDIA bloc candidate then I won’t have to go to jail.”
“So, keep in mind whether you want to send Kejriwal to jail or not,” he said.
The Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress are fighting the elections in alliance in the national capital, with the AAP contesting four and the Congress three seats. Congress leader JP Aggarwal has been fielded against the BJP’s Parveen Khandelwal.

The Supreme Court on Friday gave interim bail to the Aam Admi Party convenor till June 1. However, as per the terms of his bail, the Delhi Chief Minister cannot make any comment about his role in the Delhi liquor scam case.
Congress and AAP are in a 3:4 seat-sharing agreement in Delhi. Notably, the AAP and Congress “mutually agreed” to go solo in Punjab, but are a part of the INDIA bloc and are fighting in alliance in Delhi.
The BJP has won the Chandni Chowk constituency in the last two Lok Sabha elections in 2014 and 2019, with former Union Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan representing the area for the past 10 years.
Four phases of Lok Sabha polls have been held and the voting will conclude on June 1 with results on June 4. Voting for Delhi’s seven seats is scheduled to be held on May 25. (ANI)
