Kejriwal to seek trust vote amid ED summons, BJP's alleged attempts to poach AAP MLAs

Motion of confidence to be taken up in assembly on Saturday


Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal moved a motion of confidence in the assembly two days after the Enforcement Directorate issued summons to him for the sixth time for questioning in the excise policy-linked money laundering case.

The move, seen as an attempt to show off strength in the assembly, also comes a few days after the Delhi CM alleged that the BJP tried to poach AAP MLAs and topple his government.

The motion will be taken up for discussion on Saturday as the house has been adjourned till tomorrow.

"We can see that parties are being broken and governments are being toppled in other states by slapping false cases. In Delhi, they intend to arrest AAP leaders under the pretext of liquor policy case. They want to topple the Delhi government because they know that they can never win the election in Delhi. To show the people that none of our MLAs broke away and all of them are intact, I present a confidence motion," the AAP leader said proposing the motion of confidence in the assembly.
