Delhi BJP president Virendraa Sachdeva criticised CM Arvind Kejriwal's judicial custody in connection to the money-laundering case linked to an alleged liquor excise policy scam. Sachdeva's remarks came after Kejriwal's Enforcement Directorate custody ended, calling into question Kejriwal's integrity. He alleged that the scam led Delhi's youth into addiction, urging Delhiites to observe those who have "looted" them. Kejriwal's detention sparked AAP protests and opposition outcry, with claims of misuse of investigative agencies like the ED and CBI to suppress dissenting voices, notably from the INDIA bloc, of which AAP is a member.

China's move, termed ‘Zangnan’ by them, was criticized by Jaishankar as baseless. The dispute has also drawn attention from the US, with a State Department spokesperson affirming Arunachal Pradesh as Indian territory and opposing unilateral territorial claims across the Line of Actual Control.
