The US State Department, represented by spokesperson Matthew Miller, reaffirmed its stance on the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, emphasizing the need for fair and transparent legal processes. This came in response to India’s summoning of a US diplomat regarding earlier remarks. The meeting between Indian officials and the US Acting Deputy Chief of Mission included objections to the US’s comments on Kejriwal’s arrest. Additionally, Miller addressed concerns about frozen bank accounts linked to the Congress party, advocating for fair legal treatment in both cases. India stressed the importance of respecting sovereignty and internal affairs, emphasizing the country’s independent judiciary. The US remarks echo sentiments expressed by Germany’s Foreign Office, which also called for a fair trial for Kejriwal. The arrest, amidst upcoming elections, has sparked opposition protests. The case revolves around alleged irregularities in Delhi’s liquor policy, with the Enforcement Directorate implicating Kejriwal and others in misusing funds for election campaigns.
