The Supreme Court has refused to give quick relief to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, who is jailed in the Delhi Liquor Policy scam case. The Supreme Court had issued a notice earlier to ED in this matter. The court will now hear the Kejriwal’s case on April 29. Senior lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for Arvind Kejriwal in the Supreme Court, claimed that Kejriwal has been arrested to stop him from campaigning in the Lok Sabha elections. Kejriwal’s lawyer had sought to list the case for hearing on April 19, but the Supreme Court refused to hear it early and listed the case for hearing on April 29.

  • Supreme Court refuses to give relief to Kejriwal, issues notice to ED, now hearing on April 29.
  • Kejriwal’s lawyer had sought to list the case for hearing on April 19, but the Supreme Court refused to hear it early and listed the case for hearing on April 29. 
  • A bench of Justice Sanjeev Khanna and Justice Dipankar Dutta will hear Kejriwal’s petition.
  • The High Court made this comment while hearing a PIL. It has been alleged in the petition that due to mutual tussle between the Municipal Corporation, students studying in MCD schools have not been able to get text books and are forced to study in tin sheds.
  • The hunger for power will be quenched by devotion.

It is alleged that in the Delhi liquor policy which allegedly enabled liquor companies to recoup the bribes paid as profits, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is “directly and indirectly” involved in the process connected with the “proceeds of crime”, said the Directorate of Enforcement (ED) in its affidavit filed in the Supreme Court. 

Delhi High Court has reprimanded the Delhi Government and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) for not providing textbooks to more than 2 lakh students. The Delhi High Court said on Friday that the Delhi government is only interested in remaining in power and by not resigning despite the arrest, Arvind Kejriwal has given priority to personal interest over national interest. Delhi High Court has reserved its decision on this matter and the court will give its verdict on Monday.

The Delhi High Court yesterday lashed out at CM Arvind Kejriwal, MCD over the non-supply of notebooks to school students, “The Delhi government deserved to be lashed out. The advertisements conducted by them show that they run world-class institutions, however, the reality is entirely different. I have seen several schools of the Delhi government and of MCD; I saw 140 students in one class in Delhi. So as three sections sitting together in one class…no water facility and the same condition I witnessed in MCD schools as well. 

The issue is that 8 lakh students study at MCD, under the Right to Education Act, students are entitled to receive textbooks, notebooks, writing materials and uniforms. Out of 8 lakh, not even a single student has received any of it. Similarly, 10 lakh students from standard 1 to 8 who come under the Right to Education Act, are under the Delhi government. They have now received notebooks after the High Court lambasted them (Delhi govt & MCD), however, none of the students have got books.”

Former Supreme Court Judge, Justice Ajay Rastogi says, “You are holding a high office of a chief minister and it is a public office. If you are in custody, I feel that it is not good for a person in custody to continue in office. The public morality demands that one must quit. Let us see in the past. J Jayalalithaa, Lalu Prasad Yadav resigned and recently Mr Soren also resigned. You can’t take any paper to the sitting chief minister in custody and get him signed.

I am very firm in my view that the public morality demands it (resignation). Let us see in the government service. If a government employee is in custody for 48 hours, nobody is going to examine the merits of his custody. He is deemed under suspension. Here you are in custody for so many days and god knows how long. Merely, because there is no provision that doesn’t give you the authority to continue. So I think somebody must have to take a call. I am personally of the view that even if there is no provision, morality demands for taking action.”

In a blow to Kejriwal before the Lok Sabha elections, the Delhi High Court had rejected his petition and refused to grant relief. Kejriwal had challenged his arrest in a money laundering case related to excise policy. The court had said that despite repeated summons, Kejriwal did not appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and did not join the investigation, the investigating agency was left with no special option.

While dismissing the Delhi CM’s plea, the High Court had also cited the Directorate’s claim that Kejriwal was actively involved in concealing and using the proceeds of crime. The Delhi High Court, while rejecting Kejriwal’s petition, had said that the investigation against ‘common and special persons’ cannot be separate.

Earlier, Kejriwal had approached the Delhi High Court challenging his arrest in the liquor policy scam, but he did not get relief from the High Court, after which Kejriwal approached the Supreme Court.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has told the Supreme Court in his defense that his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the liquor policy case is illegal and constitutes an “unprecedented assault” on the tenets of democracy based on “free and fair elections and federalism.”

Kejriwal, who is presently in judicial custody, has told the Apex Court that the money laundering case is a “classic case” of how the ruling party led central government has misused ED and its wide powers under PMLA to crush its “biggest political opponent”- Aam Aadmi Party and its leaders.

In his reply, Kejriwal has alleged that ED “illegally picked up” a sitting Chief Minister five days after the General Elections were notified and the Model Code of Conduct was put in place.

The truth is that the king here i.e. the person holding a high position does not have peace even for a moment. The purpose behind getting human birth is to attain salvation. Forgetting this main work, man wants to do all the other work. One loses his entire life in attaining the kingship here. Neither he searches for a Tatvdarshi Saint nor he is able to understand Tatvagyan. And in the end man just wastes his precious birth. This is the place (lok) of Brahm Kaal, where neither the king is happy, nor the minister, nor the pauper. The happiness, glory, wealth, family, ego, intoxication of power are all fake. These are not even reasons for real happiness.

Real happiness lies in searching for God, attaining true knowledge and living life accordingly. The hunger for false power here can never end. If you want to get real happiness and wealth then do devotion. For this all of you are requested to listen to the satsang (Spiritual Discourses) of Tatvadarshi Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj on YouTube channel and know how to make this life successful so that in the end you can get all the happiness.
