BJP mocks AAP's ‘Satyamev Jayate’ remark

BJP leader Manjinder Sirsa slammed Aam Aadmi Party over bail granted to Kejriwal."On Arvind Kejriwal getting bail, Aam Aadmi Party is saying 'Satyamev Jayate'. If getting bail is victory, I would like to tell that there is not a single person who was arrested for corruption and did not get bail," he told PTI.

"Getting bail doesn't mean there is no evidence against you. Evidence was there, and this is why the same court sent you to jail and then gave you bail, so you can't even say the court is biased," Sirsa added.
