‘Release Arvind Kejriwal, Hemant Soren’, Priyanka Gandhi declares INDIA bloc’s five demands

New Delhi | Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday put forth five demands on behalf of the INDIA bloc at a rally at Ramlila Maidan here, including the immediate release of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren.

She announced the demands to underline the imperative “need for a level playing field in the electoral process”. She said the Election Commission must ensure a fair and unbiased electoral environment, free from any undue influence.

“The Poll body is urged to halt any politically motivated investigation by the enforcement agencies like the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which could potentially manipulate the electoral outcome,” she said.


The Congress leader demanded the immediate release of prominent opposition figures, Arvind Kejriwal and Hemant Soren, who have been arrested, ensuring their participation in the democratic process.

She further demanded the cessation of any "endeavour aimed at financially crippling political parties during the electoral period, ensuring their ability to function effectively".

Pursuant to the Supreme Court directives, the fifth demand that she made was the establishment of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe BJP's alleged involvement in cases of money laundering and extortion.

In her address, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra issued a reminder to the ruling BJP, and said: "I believe they (BJP) are ensnared in an illusion.”
