BIHAR

Before entering prison, the RJD chairman had at least resigned from his position as CM: BJP

NEW DELHI: Aiming at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for declining to step down on “moral grounds” following his apprehension by a court to be placed under judicial custody in connection with a money laundering case related to the Delhi excise policy, BJP MP Sudhanshu Trivedi pointed out that the previous Chief Minister of Bihar, Lalu Prasad, had resigned from office prior to being sentenced to prison.

Speaking during a news conference on Monday, Trivedi said, “Lalu Prasad has not resigned yet. He had at least resigned when he was about to go to jail.”

Lalu Prasad’s Rashtriya Janata Dal is a partner of the India bloc, which includes the Aam Aadmi Party.
Trivedi criticised opposition parties for characterising Kejriwal’s arrest as a BJP political plot, stating, “Those who try to portray the bogey of victimhood, I would like to underline that today’s judgement of the court is based on concrete evidence of which neither we nor anyone else is privy.”
The court’s jurisprudence is what led to the decision to grant an additional 15 days of judicial detention. Now, it brings up certain ethical and legal issues,” the senior BJP lawmaker said.
