PTC News Desk: The political showdown between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has escalated dramatically following the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Both parties are gearing up for protests and counter-protests, turning the streets of Delhi into a battleground for their ideological warfare.

Here are the key developments in this unfolding drama:

1. AAP's Call for Protest: The AAP has called for a 'gherao' of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residence in protest against Kejriwal's arrest. AAP MLAs and office-bearers will assemble at the party headquarters before marching towards the Prime Minister's residence.

2. BJP's Counter-Protest: In response, the BJP has organised a counter-protest demanding Kejriwal's resignation. Delhi Chief Virendra Sachdeva will lead the BJP's march from the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium to the Delhi Secretariat.

3. Cross-Party Support: The AAP's protest on Sunday witnessed participation from representatives of the INDIA bloc. Delhi minister Gopal Rai expressed public outrage over Kejriwal's arrest, highlighting growing discontent among the people.

4. Congress Criticism: Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely criticised the BJP's actions, questioning the democratic integrity of arresting elected officials. He emphasised the Congress party's commitment to defending democracy and announced support for protests against Kejriwal's arrest.

5. INDIA Opposition Bloc Rally: The INDIA Opposition bloc has announced a mega rally at Delhi's Ramlila Maidan to further protest against Kejriwal's arrest, indicating broader political opposition to the BJP's actions.

6. AAP's Defiance: Despite BJP's demands for Kejriwal's resignation, the AAP remains steadfast, asserting that Kejriwal will continue as the chief minister even if he operates from inside the jail.

7. Kejriwal's Message: In a message conveyed by his wife Sunita Kejriwal, Arvind Kejriwal urged continued dedication to societal welfare and advocated against harbouring hatred, even towards political opponents.

8. Promise to Deliver: Despite being in custody, Kejriwal issued directives from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) lock-up, emphasizing his commitment to serving the people of Delhi and challenging the BJP's attempts to hinder his governance.

9. Legal Battle: Kejriwal's legal battle continues as the Delhi High Court will hear his plea challenging the arrest and the ED's custody order. The AAP leader contests accusations by the ED, which alleges his involvement in a scrapped policy with inflated profit margins.

10. Ongoing Conflict: The arrest of Arvind Kejriwal has ignited a fierce political conflict between the AAP and the BJP, underscoring the deep ideological divisions in Indian politics and setting the stage for further confrontations on the streets of Delhi.

As tensions escalate and both parties dig in their heels, the fate of Arvind Kejriwal and the political landscape of Delhi hang in the balance, awaiting the verdict of both legal proceedings and public opinion.
