The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will protest outside the BJP headquarters in the national capital on Thursday against the arrest of its Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the alleged Delhi liquor policy case. Sanjay Singh was arrested after raids at his Delhi residence followed by hours-long questioning concerning a money laundering case linked with Delhi excise policy. The arrest triggered a political firestorm, with Delhi chief minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “This shows Modi ji’s nervousness. They will arrest many more opposition leaders before the elections,” Kejriwal said on X. Speaking to reporters after visiting Singh's residence in the evening, Kejriwal asserted that the AAP is "a hardcore honest party". "They arrested Sanjay Singh, who is a strong voice against the corruption of Modiji. He (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) is corrupt from head to toe. I think he is the most corrupt prime minister in independent India," Kejriwal said. Dig deeper

Maharashtra deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis made a startling assertion on Wednesday, claiming that Sharad Pawar had given consent for the imposition of President's Rule in Maharashtra back in 2019. In response, Sharad Pawar countered, saying that the BJP, which held power at the centre, had imposed President's Rule in 2019 due to a deadlock in government formation. He said, “If they decide to impose President’s Rule, why should we say no? They have the numbers, why would they listen to me.” Both Fadnavis and Sharad Pawar were present at the India Today Mumbai conclave. Fadnavis further alleged that Sharad Pawar had discussed potential collaborations with Uddhav Thackeray and the Congress to establish the Maha Vikas Aghadi in Maharashtra.“When President's Rule is imposed, every party is asked whether they would stake claim to form the government. NCP said ‘no’, and that letter was drafted in front of me. Sharad Pawar said he wanted some time to assess public mood and consented to President's Rule,” Fadnavis said. Dig deeper
