In the 2020 assembly election, Sunita Kejriwal carried out a door-to-door campaign for Arvind Kejriwal in the New Delhi assembly constituency, where the chief minister was seeking a third term.

With Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain also behind bars, AAP has been facing a crisis of leaders who can campaign for the party in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. AAP is contesting four seats in Delhi, 13 in Punjab, one in Haryana, two each in Gujarat, and Assam.

The AAP has maintained that the Enforcement Directorate’s probe in the excise case was part of a political conspiracy to crush the party. It has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of attempting to destabilise and topple the AAP government.
