    Begusarai (Bihar): A day after the Supreme Court granted interim bail to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a money laundering case, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday said that the AAP leader should not have accepted such a bail if he had the self-respect.
    "Any person who has a little bit of self-respect would not have come out of jail on such a bail. He should have told the Supreme Court that I don't want such a bail but Kejriwal has no shame left," he said.
    Meanwhile, Kejriwal said that no other party has been allegedly "harassed to this extent in the past 75 years".
    He targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who he said is claiming to "fight" corruption, "but all the thieves are in his party".
    "...No other party has been harassed to this extent in 75 years. The Prime Minister is saying that he is fighting corruption but all the thieves are in his party," he claimed.
    He also warned that all the opposition leaders, including Chief Ministers Mamata Banerjee, and MK Stalin would be sent to jail in case the BJP-led NDA comes to power after the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

    Kejriwal asked BJP who will become the Prime Min ister if BJP wins the polls as PM Modi made a rule that that leaders in the party would retire after 75 years and PM Modi will turn 75 on September 17 this year.
    "...These people ask the INDIA alliance who will be their Prime Minister. I ask BJP who will be your Prime Minister? PM Modi is turning 75, on 17th September. He made a rule that leaders in the party would retire after 75 years...LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Sumitra Mahajan, and Yashwant Sinha were retired and now PM Modi is going to retire on 17th September...If their government is formed, they will first dispose of Yogi Adityanath and then make Amit Shah the Prime Minister of the country. PM Modi is asking for votes for Amit Shah. Will Amit Shah fulfil Modi's guarantee?, Kejriwal added.
