Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday held his first press conference after the Supreme Court granted him interim bail till June 1 in an excise policy case. CM Kejriwal gave a flying kiss to his supporters at Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) headquarters and said, “I am very happy to be back among all of you. Together we have to save our country from dictatorship, I will fight with all my might, I need the support of 140 crore people of the country".

The Supreme Court on Friday gave interim bail to the AAP convenor till June 1 with some conditions. Kejriwal spent over 50 days in Tihar Jail after being arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in an excise policy case on March 21.

Kejriwal will be campaigning for the AAP party and INDIA bloc for the remaining phases of the Lok Sabha election. The Lok Sabha election will be held in Delhi on May 25 for seven seats. The counting of votes will take place on June 4.

Here are the top quotes from Arvind Kejriwal's speech:

  • "Lord Hanuman has blessed our party, a miracle has happened that's why I am in front of you".
  • “I will work tirelessly, campaign across country to finish 'dictatorship' and save India in the next 21 days". Kejriwal said as the interim bail of the Delhi CM is ending on June 1.

  • “If PM Modi wants to learn about fighting corruption, he should learn from Arvind Kejriwal; we sent corrupt to jail".

  • "BJP is asking about INDIA bloc PM candidate...I ask who will be the PM candidate of BJP because as per PM Modi's rule, any political leader reaches 75 years of age will be retired from politics. And on 17 September 2025, PM Modi will turn 75".
  • "PM Modi wants to end the political career of talented BJP leaders. They ended the political career of LK Advani, MM Joshi, Sumitra Mahajan, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Vasundhara Raje, Raman Singh, and the next on the line is Yogi Adityanath," Kejriwal said.
  • Arvind Kejriwal also spoke about why he did not resign from the CM post during the press conference. "In the last 75 years, elections have been held in so many states, AAP government was formed in Delhi with the most historic majority, no other political party could win in any state with such a huge margin. They knew could never defeat AAP, so a conspiracy was hatched to send Kejriwal to jail and the government would fall but we did not fall into their trap. Hemant Soren also should not have resigned," he said.
