Sunita Kejriwal Takes Charge: Leads AAP’s National Election Campaign, Seeks Votes Amidst Husband’s Arrest

In a bold move amidst her husband’s legal woes, Sunita Kejriwal, the wife of incarcerated Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, is set to spearhead the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) nationwide campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, announced the party on Friday.

Senior AAP leader Atishi confirmed that Sunita, a retired Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer, will kickstart her campaign with a roadshow in the East Delhi constituency on Saturday. Atishi added that Sunita will extend her campaign to Delhi, Gujarat, Haryana, and Punjab, rallying support for AAP candidates.

“This will begin tomorrow. Sunita Kejriwal ji will lead a roadshow in East Delhi… She will seek blessings on behalf of Arvind Kejriwal ji from the people. A day later, on April 28, she will lead a roadshow in West Delhi,” stated Atishi.

Earlier this month, Sunita was designated as ‘Star campaigner no. 2’ in AAP’s list of 40 individuals for the Gujarat campaign. Political experts view her appointment as the leader of the party’s nationwide campaign as her most significant “political responsibility” to date.

“I want to tell the BJP that the people of Delhi, Punjab, and the country are standing by Arvind Kejriwal ji. They are against the arrest of Arvind Kejriwal ji, and they will definitely give their blessings to Arvind Kejriwal ji,” Atishi affirmed.

The move comes in the wake of legal troubles for Arvind Kejriwal. The Enforcement Directorate (ED), in response to Kejriwal’s plea contesting his arrest on March 21, informed the Supreme Court on Wednesday that the investigating officer’s satisfaction led to the conclusion that the politician is guilty of money laundering.

The ED stated that Kejriwal evaded interrogation by failing to appear before the investigating officer despite receiving nine summons.

Sunita’s leadership in AAP’s election campaign is seen as a strategic maneuver to garner support for the party amid challenging circumstances. As she steps into this role, she not only carries the responsibility of rallying voters but also represents a strong symbol of solidarity amidst her husband’s legal battle.

The decision to place Sunita at the forefront of the campaign underscores AAP’s confidence in her leadership abilities and her capacity to connect with voters across diverse regions. Her tenure as an IRS officer and her prior involvement in AAP’s campaigning efforts make her a compelling choice to lead the party’s charge in the upcoming elections.

As Sunita Kejriwal takes on this pivotal role, all eyes will be on how she navigates the political landscape and mobilizes support for AAP, while also confronting the legal challenges faced by her husband.
