In a recent revelation, senior AAP leader and Delhi minister Saurabh Bharadwaj alleged that a pharmacy company channeled Rs 30 crore to the BJP through electoral bonds following the arrest of Amid Kejriwal in an excise policy case. Bharadwaj, addressing a press conference in New Delhi, also raised concerns about the safety of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who was detained by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money laundering case related to the excise policy.

During the press conference, Bharadwaj stated, "The ED has failed to demonstrate a money trail." 

According to Bharadwaj, a Hyderabad-based pharmaceutical company, transferred Rs 30 crore in electoral bonds to the BJP in November 2022.

He added, "They are attributing this to Arvind Kejriwal ji. Whether the court is observing this or not, the people of the country are certainly watching." He also stated that there is threat to Kejriwal's life, who has been arrested without any substantiated evidence. The money trail and the proceeds of crime in this excise case seem to be linked to the BJP.

The minister asserted that there is no concrete evidence of any money trail or proceeds of crimes against the AAP or Kejriwal as alleged.

Bharadwaj criticized the manner in which Kejriwal was detained, labeling it as 'inhumane.' He further mentioned that the chief minister's family members, including elderly parents, have been denied access to their relatives or AAP leaders since Thursday evening.  The AAP leader also lashed at the people, who are celebrating Kejriwal's arrest.
