“To spread Arvind Kejriwal's message to every household, today AAP has launched a 'DP campaign' across the country on social media. Starting at 3 pm, all AAP leaders and party workers are changing their DPs,” Atishi said while addressing the media.

Atishi also urged people to join the campaign and change their social media account picture to “save the constitution and democracy” in the country.

Atishi said Kejriwal is the only leader in the country who can challenge PM Modi. "So he was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate without any evidence just after the announcement of Lok Sabha polls. BJP has framed Kejriwal in a fake case and used the ED to put him behind bars. Why is he (Arvind Kejriwal) incarcerated as soon as the election is announced?” the minister said.

The Enforcement Directorate arrested Kejriwal on March 21 after his name was mentioned multiple times in the chargesheets relating to the excise policy case. The ED had summoned him nine times in the case, but he did not depose before the probe agency.

According to the chargesheet, all the accused in the excise policy case were allegedly in touch with the Delhi CM to formulate the excise policy that resulted in undue benefits to them in return for which they paid kickbacks to the party.

The AAP leaders on Monday also decided to not celebrate the Holi festival as a mark of protest against their convenor's arrest. “Holi is not just a festival, but a symbol of the victory of good over evil, a symbol of justice over cruelty. Today, every leader of Aam Aadmi Party is fighting this evil, cruelty and injustice day and night. This year, Aam Aadmi Party has resolved that we will not play with colours, we will not celebrate Holi,” Atishi wrote on X.
