Such eagerness to cling to power doesn't befit Kejriwal, says Madhya Pradesh CM Mohan Yadav, what Digvijaya Singh said?

In Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Mohan Yadav expressed dismay on Friday over the situation where Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, is headed to jail without resigning from his position. Yadav highlighted the precedent set by former Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, who resigned before facing arrest in a money-laundering investigation.

Yadav emphasized the historical practice in India where accused individuals offer their resignations and refrain from resuming their duties until cleared of all charges. He cited examples ranging from Lal Bahadur Shastri to Lal Krishna Adani, noting how Adani promptly resigned from all roles, including Parliament, when falsely implicated in a case.

Expressing disappointment at Kejriwal's situation, Yadav remarked that such eagerness to cling to power doesn't befit him. He suggested that Kejriwal should have stepped down from his Chief Ministerial role.

Digvijaya condemns Kejriwal's arrest

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh condemned Kejriwal's arrest, accusing the BJP of undermining democracy by targeting opposition leaders and freezing their bank accounts. Singh criticized the BJP government's handling of the Electoral Bond case, alleging unconstitutional measures and accusing the party of accumulating funds through dubious means such as extortion, donations in exchange for contracts, and involvement with shell companies.

Singh also raised concerns about the manipulation of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs), calling for stringent actions against those involved and advocating for severe penalties, including capital punishment, for those found guilty of tampering with EVMs.
