Delhi High Court said this while rejecting petition to remove Arvind Kejriwal from CM post

Delhi High Court has rejected the petition filed against Arvind Kejriwal, under which a demand was made to remove him from the post of Chief Minister. The Acting Chief Justice (ACJ) of Delhi High Court has refused to interfere in this matter. He said that this is an executive issue.

ACJ Manmohan said, "We heard the counsel for the petitioner. This court is of the view that there is no scope for judicial interference in this matter. We dismiss this petition. We are not commenting on the merits of the petition." 

This petition was filed by Delhi resident Surjeet Singh Yadav, who describes himself as a farmer and social worker.

He says that the Chief Minister should not be allowed to hold public office.

CM Kejriwal was arrested by ED last Thursday from his residence in New Delhi. He is accused of being involved in the alleged scam in Delhi Liquor Policy.

Kejriwal to be produced in Rouse Avenue Court 

On the other hand, Arvind Kejriwal's ED remand is ending today. He will be produced in Rouse Avenue Court sometime from now. Kejriwal was arrested by ED on March 21.

While being produced, he was asked that LG had said that the government will not run from jail. In response to this, Kejriwal said that this is a political conspiracy, the public will answer for it.

On March 23, Kejriwal had challenged the decision of his arrest and remand of the Rouse Avenue Court in the Delhi High Court and demanded an immediate hearing. On March 27, Delhi High Court refused to grant relief to Kejriwal. The next hearing on the case will be on April 3.
