Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said he has been informed by sources that the Enforcement Department (ED) may arrest his cabinet minister Satyendar Jain just before assembly elections in Punjab. 

However, he said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders and workers do not fear these agencies as they have done nothing wrong. 

“From our sources, we have got to know that right before Punjab polls in coming few days the ED is going to arrest Satyendar Jain (Delhi Health and Home Minister). They are most welcome. Previously too, the Centre had conducted raids at Satyendar Jain but got nothing,” Kejriwal said in a virtual press conference.

Taking a swipe at Punjab Chief Minister Charanjt Singh Channi,  national convenor said that he will not cry like him on ED raids.

“We will not cry like Channi Ji (on ED raids). He is frustrated because he had done wrong… We’ve not done anything wrong so we are not afraid,” said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

He alleged that whenever the realises that it is losing, it unleashes all the central agencies on its opponents. 

“Since there are elections, raids and arrests will be made. We do not fear such raids and arrests because we have done nothing wrong,” Kejriwal said.

He also said that previously raids were conducted at his premise, his deputy Manish Sisodia’s premises, Jain’s residence and AAP’s 21 MLAs were arrested but they got nothing.

In 2017-18, Jain came on ED radar in connection with a money laundering case. The case was filed by the CBI which claimed that Jain could not explain the source of funds received by four companies in which he was a shareholder. These four companies included Prayas Info Solutions, Akinchan Developers, Managalyatan Projects and Indo-Metal Impex Pvt Limited. Jain and his wife were alleged holders of one-third of the shares of these companies

Punjab goes to polls on 20 February.
