They put me in jail, they put Satyendar Jain in jail, and also Manish Sisodia was imprisoned. Sanjay Singh too. And today, my PA Bibhav Kumar has also been jailed," Kejriwal added.

He alleged that the BJP was planning to imprison more AAP leaders, including Raghav Chadha, Saurabh Bhardwaj and Atishi. Kejriwal questioned the BJP's motives, suggesting that the reason for this crackdown was AAP's success in governance.
