India strongly objects to US remarks on opposition leader Kejriwal's arrest

India’s foreign ministry reported on Wednesday ( Mar 27 ) that its country had rebuffed statements made by the US regarding the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Washington responded two days after saying it is carefully monitoring the reports surrounding Kejriwal’s imprisonment and that it supports a good legal process for him.

A few weeks before India’s general elections on April 19 are scheduled to take place, Kejriwal, whose Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP ) governs the state of Punjab and the national capital territory, was detained last week by the federal financial crime-fighting agency on corruption charges.

AAP, all of whose principal officials are now imprisoned in connection with the situation, says he has been “falsely arrested” in a “fabricated situation”. The federal government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) deny political interference.

” India’s legal systems are founded on an impartial court that is committed to providing objective and fast results. Casting presumptions on that is unjustified”, the American foreign department said in a statement.

Says are expected to be polite with people ‘ internal affairs and independence in politics. This responsibility is even more so in ( the ) case of fellow democracies. It was usually finish up setting bad norms”, it said.

The opposition alliance is challenging Modi, and Kejriwal’s imprisonment following the announcement of votes has angered him and drawn international attention.

Germany, which claimed Berlin assumes and anticipates that the criteria relating to the liberation of the court and fundamental democratic principles will also be applied in this case, followed by the US opinions on Kejriwal.

In answer, New Delhi summoned a European minister to protest against the notes. According to news agency ANI, the US deputy commander of vision in New Delhi was likewise summoned on Wednesday.

India and the US have near, strategic ties, and Washington has increasingly come to view New Delhi as a crucial partner in its efforts to counteract China’s growing global influence.
