BJP against AAP over Kejriwal’s phone password: “Why did Kejriwal, Sisodia change phones so frequently?”

Atishi said that the ED is attempting to retrieve the AAP’s electoral plan from phones that have been seized and accused the agency of serving as the BJP’s political tool.

Atishi, an AAP politician and minister from Delhi, blasted the Enforcement Directorate on Friday, branding it “BJP’s political weapon” and charging that its agents were attempting to pry out the Aam Aadmi Party’s polling plan. By looking into Arvind Kejriwal’s phone, Atishi said that the ED is attempting to learn the specifics of the AAP’s electoral plan for the Lok Sabha elections.

Arvind Kejriwal, the national convener of the AAP and the chief minister of Delhi, was taken into custody by the ED on March 21. Several gadgets, including his personal phone, were taken from his home. He was taken into jail by the Enforcement Department (ED) on April 1 in connection with the money laundering case involving the Delhi excise policy.

Speaking during a news conference held here, Atishi asserted that the ED’s emphasis on investigating Kejriwal’s cell phone—which was only a few months old and nonexistent at the time the policy was formulated and put into effect—proved the agency was acting as the BJP’s “political weapon”.

Atishi was swiftly retaliated against by the Bharatiya Janta Party, though, as its president for Delhi, Virendra Sachdeva, said that she was “bluffing.” Sachdeva demanded an explanation from the AAP as to why Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, the former deputy chief minister, “changed phones frequently”.
As a Cabinet minister in the Delhi government, Atishi stated, “The BJP, not the ED, is really interested in finding out what is on Kejriwal’s phone.” The excise policy, according to her, went into effect in 2021–2022, yet the Delhi Chief Minister’s phone is just a few months old.

According to Atishi, the ED claims that Kejriwal’s phone at that time is no longer available and that it now needs the passcode to his new phone. “They want it because they will find in it details of AAP’s Lok Sabha poll strategy, campaign plans, talks with INDIA bloc leaders and information regarding media and social media strategy,” she stated.

In response to this assertion, the Delhi BJP stated that Kejriwal and Sisodia had both acknowledged that “they changed several phones.” Manish Sisodia was arrested in connection with a money laundering case involving excise policies and is currently being held at Delhi’s Tihar prison.

Atishi, in the meantime, remarked, “I would like to know why the ED wants to look at a phone that is only a few months old when they are aware that it was not used during the policy period.”
