Soon after the Central Bureau of Investigation arrested Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday, 26 February, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal tweeted that the leader is "innocent" and his arrest shows "signs of dirty politics."
The Aam Aadmi Party's Delhi chapter also tweeted that it was a "black day for democracy."
The AAP accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of making the arrest due to 'political rivalry.'
'Because CM Kejriwal Can Defeat PM Modi...'
Rajya Sabha MP and AAP leader Raghav Chadha stated, "Everyone in India believes that only CM Arvind Kejriwal can defeat PM Modi in national elections. As CM Arvind Kejriwal's popularity grows, the CBI and ED will continue to attack the leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party."
Chadha further added: "PM Modi is jealous of CM Arvind Kejriwal because there is no one in his cabinet who works like Deputy CM Manish Sisodia."
AAP leader Sanjay Singh too condemned the arrest and said that this was an act of dictatorship.
