Hitting out at the Centre while accusing of toppling the AAP government, Delhi CM Kejriwal said, "You (the public) gave me 62 seats (in the 2020 elections) and 67 seats (in the 2015 elections), only then my government could run, otherwise, if we had got 40 seats, these people would have toppled my government. Everyone is seeing how the BJP, LG and the central government create obstacles in every work."


"I am fighting with all of them. What did the people of Delhi get by electing 7 BJP MPs? I want to tell the people that they should elect 7 MPs from the INDIA Alliance, it will strengthen me. 13 MPs will come from Punjab, we have 10 in Rajya Sabha, and overall we will have 25-30 MPs, then no one will have the power to stop our work..." The Delhi CM added.


Speaking about appearing before ED virtually after March 12, Delhi CM Kejriwal said, "My stand has always been that ED summons are illegal. I have written to them (ED) many times but they have not responded...I have written that I am not hiding anything and am ready to answer all your questions and you can ask through video conferencing. This is my right...There is no demand from my side, but if they want, they can telecast the (questioning) live..."
