INDIA Bloc To Hold ‘Maha Rally’ On March 31 Against Kejriwal’s Arrest

New Delhi: The ‘INDIA’ bloc will hold a mega rally at Ramila Maidan on March 31, Delhi minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Gopal Rai announced on Sunday.

The announcement of the rally comes amid the opposition parties vs Prime Minister Narendra Modi government’s faceoff over the arrest of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the excise policy case.

“The way Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has been arrested, all those people across the nation who love and respect constitution, there is anger in their hearts. It is not just about Arvind Kejriwal but the misuse of central agencies to wipe out the entire opposition,” Rai said at the briefing of the INDIA bloc leaders.

“PM Modi is misusing central agencies, buying MLAs…either MLAs are being bought by money or they’re being threatened to join BJP. Those people who are not ready to be sold, bow down, fake cases are being registered against them,” he said.

“None of our ministers and MLAs were allowed to meet Kejriwal during his arrest. Yesterday it was Shahidi Diwas and we wanted to offer a tribute to Bhagat Singh, but there too we were treated like we are criminals,” Rai added.

CPI(M) leader Rajiv Kunwar said that they are not only protesting against the arrest of Kejriwal but also the dictatorial rule. “Yesterday our party went to different areas in Delhi to hold demonstrations against Kejriwal’s arrest…We will show up in large numbers on the 31st and appeal the same from the residents of Delhi,” he said.

Congress Delhi Chief Arvinder Singh Lovely said that the March 31 ‘maha rally’ will not be ‘political’ but a call to save the country’s democracy and raise the voice against Centre. “Our leader (Congress MP) Rahul Gandhi is fighting to save democracy. We are standing strong with the partners of INDIA alliance,” he added.
