The party has claimed that the Delhi CM is not being allowed to go outside his residence and no one is being permitted to visit him as well. Saurabh Bharadwaj, the spokesperson of the party has said that there are barricades outside the CM’s residence.
Delhi Police Rubbishes AAP’s Claim
The Delhi police have officially denied the claims of the party and called it nothing but a baseless rumour. As per the Delhi police, the Chief Minister is not under any kind of arrest.
An officer has also stated that the CM had gone outside his residence even in the evening of December 7. The police department of the Capital city has clarified that there is heavy security personnel outside Kejriwal’s residence not to stop him from going out but to protect him as there are chances of clashes due to the ongoing farmers’ protest.
As of now, Kejriwal has not stated anything on this matter. A statement from him would clarify whether the party’s claims are true or false.
