The INDIA bloc is all set to hold a rally at Delhi`s Ramlila Maidan on Sunday against the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in connection with a money laundering case linked to the Delhi excise policy scam and several other issues.

Arvind Kejriwal was arrested by the ED on March 21. He is in custody till April 1.

Speaking on the INDIA bloc`s rally, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said, “There are 4-5 issues over which this rally has been organised. There is Kejriwal…we should also not forget Hemant Soren and several other people who have been targeted.”

Seat adjustment is still pending in many states. Congress is still unable to decide who will contest from Amethi and Raebareli. I am sure there are no possibilities for Congress in Uttar Pradesh…”
