BJP has started ‘Operation Jhaadu’: Arvind Kejriwal

AAP leaders and workers launched a massive protest against the BJP on Sunday and marched towards its headquarters. Ahead of the protest, the Delhi CM addressed the party workers and claimed that the BJP has started 'Operation Jhaadu' and is planning to arrest senior leaders of AAP and froze the party's bank accounts. 

“The BJP has started 'Operation Jhaadu' so that we don't grow big and become a challenge to them. Through 'Operation Jhaadu', AAP's big leaders will be arrested; they are being arrested, and in the coming days, AAP's bank accounts will be frozen," said Arvind Kejriwal.

"ED's lawyer has already given this statement in court that soon after the election, AAP's bank accounts will be frozen. He said that if they freeze our account now, we will get sympathy. After the election, they will freeze our accounts, our office will be cleared out, and we will be brought to the streets. These are the three plans made by the BJP," said Kejriwal.
