"Many Aam Aadmi party leaders are in jail for false cases without proof, and they are now seeking to arrest me. My lawyers have said that these summonses are illegal, and they have not provided detailed answers," added Kejriwal.

He also alleged that the BJP wants to prevent him from campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections as the notice was sent two months before the elections.

"Today, Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh, and Vijay Nair are in jail not because of corruption but because they did not join the BJP," he alleged.

On Wednesday, AAP leaders claimed that ED is likely to arrest Kejriwal in the alleged excise scam.
