Kejriwal, whose government has been at odds with the BJP over several issues and government schemes, did not elaborate how he or his party became aware of this information.
"We have learned from our sources that in the coming few days, before the Punjab election, ED is going to arrest Satyendar Jain (Delhi health minister). I welcome ED. The Centre got Jain raided twice before, but found nothing. Now if they want to come again and raid, they are welcome,” Kejriwal said in a digital press conference.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)chief went on to add that leaders of his party have nothing to fear from any agency because they have not done anything wrong.
"If BJP-led central government wants to send ED, CBI, Income Tax, Delhi Police, or any other agency, they can go ahead and send them. If they want to raid and arrest anyone including Bhagwant Mann (AAP's Punjab chief ministerial candidate), they can do that. We all will be very happy to host you and will welcome you with wide smiles. We are not afraid because we have never done anything wrong," Kejriwal said.
The Enforcement Directorate declined to comment on the charge.
When asked about the apprehensions raised over his possible arrest, Delhi health minister Jain said he was ready to face any action.
