Kejriwal heads to Goa for 3-day visit, skips ED summons for fourth time

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal will arrive in Goa on Thursday afternoon as part of his three-day visit to the coastal state aimed at taking stock of the party's preparations for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, a party functionary said.

His visit assumes significance in light of the summons issued to him by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), asking him to appear before it on Thursday in connection with the Delhi excise policy case. Kejriwal was issued the ED summons last week for the fourth time after he skipped summons thrice earlier.

In a letter to the ED, Kejriwal asked why summonses were issued to him if he was not an accused in the money laundering case, the Aam Aadmi Party said. The party also alleged that the BJP wants Kejriwal to be arrested so that he cannot campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

"This is being done to stop him from campaigning for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. ED has said that Kejriwal is not an accused, then why were the summons issued to him," the party said.

Talking to PTI, AAP's Goa unit chief Amit Palekar said, "Kejriwal will be landing in Goa at 4 pm today. Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann will accompany him." This is Kejriwal's three-day-long visit to the state. They do not have any official engagements on Thursday, but on Friday, they will travel to South Goa's Benaulim and Velim assembly constituencies, he said.

AAP has two MLAs in the Goa assembly – Venzy Viegas (Benaulim) and Cruz Silva (Velim).

On Friday, Kejriwal is scheduled to address leaders and volunteers near Panaji following his visit to South Goa, Palekar said, adding that he will take stock of the party's preparations for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Both Kejriwal and Mann will leave Goa on Saturday, he said.
