Delhi BJP President Criticizes Kejriwal's Use of Tax-Payers' Money on Bail Applications

Delhi BJP President Virendraa Sachdeva expressed disappointment at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's use of tax-payers' money for his bail applications, particularly questioning the expenses incurred on his team of advocates. Sachdeva accused Kejriwal, along with his Congress background advocates, of attempting to prolong his interim bail using legal loopholes, suggesting that this strategy is unlikely to be successful. Additionally, Sachdeva highlighted the contrast between Kejriwal's campaigning in extreme temperatures and his claims of being afflicted by serious illnesses, which he deemed as shameful.

Union Minister Anurag Thakur echoed similar sentiments, criticizing Kejriwal for requesting bail on health grounds while actively participating in a roadshow in high temperatures. Thakur noted that Kejriwal's actions are contradictory, as he can endure the heat during campaigning but seeks bail based on purported health issues. The Supreme Court's Registry clarified that Kejriwal was granted interim bail until a specified date to engage in election campaigning and was directed to surrender thereafter.

In his request for a one-time extension of his bail, Kejriwal stated the need for medical tests, including a PET-CT Scan, due to elevated blood glucose and ketone levels, signaling potential kidney-related complications. The application cited health concerns to justify the need for further medical examinations and pointed out the results of recent tests that raised concerns about kidney-function issues.
