Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena on Wednesday declared that the Delhi government would not be run out of jail, raising the possibility of President's Rule being imposed if the Aam Aadmi Party persisted in demanding that Arvind Kejriwal stays on as chief minister despite his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in the excise policy case.

The statement from LG Saxena came while speaking at an event in the national capital. "I can assure the people of Delhi that the government will not be run from jail," he said.

Arvind Kejriwal, the national convener of the AAP and the chief minister of Delhi was detained by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 in connection to a money laundering case involving the Delhi excise policy case. A local court then ordered him to the ED's custody until March 28.

Shortly after his Kejriwal’s arrest, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) sought his resignation, charging him with engaging in corrupt activities. The first chief minister to be arrested while in office in India is Arvind Kejriwal. Kejriwal will not resign and would lead the Delhi government from prison, according to the Aam Aadmi Party.

Leaders and supporters of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demonstrated on Wednesday in front of the Delhi Assembly building, calling for the resignation of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who was detained. Delhi BJP unit president Virendra Sachdeva was one of the leaders and workers participating in the protests; he and other protestors were later taken into custody by the police.

Meanwhile, the Arvind Kejriwal will be present before court on March 28, at the end of his custodial remand. Stressing that no money has been found after raids, he is also likely to make ‘big revelations’, his wide Sunita Kejriwal said on Wednesday.
