Detailed information related to the ED action was not available with the AAP leaders and they said that the arrest of CM Arvind Kejriwal was imminent.

The people of Delhi love Kejriwal and consider him as their family members. PM Narendra Modi is afraid of Arvind Kejriwal. It is clear that ED and BJP do not respect the courts.

Kejriwal to continue as CM even after arrest, says Delhi speaker

Delhi assembly speaker Ram Niwas Goyal: the scale of force being deployed at CMs residence shows that ED has come to arrest the Chief minister. If the court has agreed to hear the case, why is ED so restless. Manish Sisodia was arrested but not an iota of proof has been presented by the agency over the last one year. It may be a small setback but the party will emerge stronger out of this episode.

Party and all MLAs have decided that CM Kejriwal will not resign after the arrest. The government will be run from the jail.
