“Arvind Kejriwal, Hemant Soren will also get justice…”: Akhilesh Yadav after SC grants bail to Sanjay Singh

Kannauj (Uttar Pradesh) [India], April 2 (ANI): After the Supreme Court granted bail to AAP MP Sanjay Singh, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav hoped that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren would also get “justice.”

“Just like Sanjay Singh got justice from the Supreme Court we are hopeful that Arvind Kejriwal will also get justice. Hemant Soren will also get justice. The step that the BJP is taking is sending elected Chief Ministers to jail, it is bringing disrepute to the BJP in the whole world,” the SP chief told ANI on Tuesday.
Addressing a press conference, the Samajwadi Party chief said that the court of this country will release everyone and the truth will prevail.
“I hope that gradually the court of this country will release everyone and the truth will prevail,” he added.
“This time the election is going to be against the collection of donations. The encounter was shown by overturning the car. Elections are going to be held against the way murders are taking place in jails and police stations,” he said.

“The question is that in a democracy, will you send any person holding the post of Chief Minister to jail by filing false cases? Will you not accept the decision of the Cabinet? If anyone is weakening the institutions then it is the Bharatiya Janata Party,” the SP chief said.
He further alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party has stopped the development of Kannauj.
“The city which was once known for its fragrance, is now known because of the misdeeds of the MP,” he added.
