Delhi Health minister Satyendar Jain sent to Enforcement Directorate custody till 9th June in an alleged money laundering case.
AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday broke his silence on the arrest of his minister Satyendar Jain by the ED, saying the case is “completely fake and politically motivated”.
Kejrwal asserted that his government and the Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) are “hardcore honest”.
“I have studied the case against Jain. It is completely fake and motivated by political reasons and he has been deliberately framed.
“We have faith in the judiciary. Jain will come out clean and the fake case will not sustain,” the chief minister told reporters during an inspection of a road development programme of his government.
Jain, who holds various portfolios including health, home and power in the Kejriwal government in Delhi, was arrested by the Enforcement Department (ED) in a case of money laundering on Monday.
“They will say anything. If there were even one per cent substance in it it, I would have taken action,” Kejriwal said when asked about the opposition Congress and BJP demand to remove Jain.
