"That is not what free democracy means": Supriya Sule after ED issues ninth summon to Delhi CM

Pune: After the Enforcement Directorate (ED) issued the ninth summon to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, NCP-SCP leader and MP Supriya Sule on Sunday said that it is very unfortunate that this kind of vindictive politics has taken over India.
"He got relief only yesterday from the court, but he has been summoned once again. The politics of vendetta is going on. That is not what free democracy means. Unfortunately, if you see India today, the way agencies are used against people is very disappointing," she said
Notably, the ED has issued a ninth summons to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal in a money laundering probe related to irregularities in the Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22 case asking him to join the investigation on March 21.
The fresh summons to the Delhi Chief Minister followed the eighth summons which he had skipped on March 4.
ED's move comes a day after Kejriwal first time appeared before the city's Rouse Avenue Court physically on Saturday in connection with the case as the agency earlier filed two complaints against him in the court complaining for disobeying their summons to join the probe in the Delhi excise policy case. The court later granted him bail in the case filed by the agency for skipping its summons.
Kejriwal got bail on a bail bond of Rs 15,000 in the case of complaints filed by ED. He is on bail and has been asked by the court to respond to the ED summons and obey the law. The court directed the Dehi Chief Minister that following the law is appropriate for a person who has taken the oath of the Constitution.
Further, responding to the Electoral Bonds, Supriya Sule said that there are many articles in the papers today that Electoral Bonds are a big corruption.
"Thanks to the Supreme Court. A white paper should come on this," she said.
