I came here to meet Sunita Kejriwal to sympathise with her and we have taken a vow to fight against this,” Kalpana Soren said after the meeting.
Soon after the meeting Delhi minister Atishi posted on X, “BJP should be scared when they see this video of two strong women, who have not been intimidated by the brute power of central agencies used against their husbands, who were heading democratically elected governments. I salute Sunita Kejriwal and Kalpana Soren for their strength and courage!”

Kalpana Soren had earlier spoken to Sunita Kejriwal in a telephonic exchange after the

Enforcement Directorate

arrested Arvind Kejriwal.
“Just talked to Arvind Kejriwal ji’s wife Sunita Kejriwal ji and tried to give him courage. As a friend, I can understand their problems. Illegal arrest of popularly elected Chief Ministers and that too when the schedule of general elections in the country has been announced, is not a normal occurrence for a democratic country. In this hour of crisis, the entire Jharkhand stands with Kejriwal ji under the leadership of Hemant Soren ji. India will not bow down,” she posted on X.

Former chief minister of Jharkhand, Hemant Soren was arrested by the central agency in January in a money laundering case linked to an alleged land scam in Jharkhand.
Meanwhile, Arvind Kejriwal is under Enforcement Directorate’s custody from March 21 in a money laundering case linked to the now-scrapped excise policy of his government.
Kalpana Soren along with Jharkhand chief minister Champai Soren is scheduled to attend the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) bloc leaders’ rally, which was announced after the

AAP

national convener Kejriwal’s arrest, on Sunday.
Sunita Kejriwal is also likely to take part in the rally, AAP leaders said.
