Over 2 lakh MCD schools lack books and uniforms, according to Delhi BJP head Virendra Sachdeva, but "Arvind Kejriwal will not leave the CM seat because he is hungry for power."

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his government were "exposed" by the high court during a hearing held the previous day, according to Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Virendra Sachdeva on Saturday. The Delhi High Court criticized the Arvind Kejriwal-led administration on Friday, stating that the Chief Minister of Delhi had prioritized his own interests over that of the country by refusing to step down in the face of his imprisonment.

"The court exposed (Delhi Chief Minister) Arvind Kejriwal and his administration in addition to rebuking them. "He [Kejriwal] is becoming blind for power and corruption...and doing selfish politics," the Delhi High Court said in a very stern statement yesterday, Virendra Sachdeva told PTI. He went on to say that although books and uniforms are missing from over two lakh MCD schools, "Arvind Kejriwal will not leave the CM seat because he is hungry for power".

The Delhi High Court criticized the city government on Friday for failing to provide books to students enrolled in MCD schools, stating that Arvind Kejriwal's continued appointment as chief minister despite his arrest serves political rather than national interests. The Delhi Minister of Urban Development, Saurabh Bharadwaj, was also criticized by the high court for allegedly turning a blind eye to the predicament of students. According to the court, "this is arrogance of power at its highest," PTI quoted it.

Advocate Ashok Agarwal went in court during a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) to inform the judge that pupils at MCD School have not received supplies like as books, notebooks, writing instruments, uniforms, etc. Arvind Kejriwal was arrested and placed in judicial custody at Delhi's Tihar Jail as part of an investigation into the purported excise policy scandal. On March 21, he was taken into custody by the Enforcement Directorate.

In relation to the matter, a number of BJP officials demanded that Arvind Kejriwal resign after his arrest. "If any government employee is caught on any charge, his resignation is taken within 48 hours," stated Virendra Sachdeva. You lead the government as the Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal. Disgrace to you! You ought to have quit by now, but your connection to the chair and the bungalow you constructed with taxpayer money is keeping you in this position.

Kejriwal filed response to ED

On Saturday, Arvind Kejriwal submitted his reply to the affidavit submitted by the Enforcement Directorate to the Supreme Court. Shortly before the announcement of the Lok Sabha election schedule and the implementation of the Model Code of Conduct, he raised yet another concern about the "mode, manner, and timing of his arrest". According to Kejriwal's declaration, this "speaks volumes about the arbitrariness" of the Enforcement Directorate.

Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, filed an objection to the Enforcement Directorate's affidavit before the Supreme Court on April 25. The agency claimed that despite receiving several summonses, he refused to cooperate with the central agency.
