Minutes before being produced in a city court on Thursday, Kejriwal was asked about Saxena's statement.

In his response, the chief minister said, "This is a political conspiracy. The people will give a reply." Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 in the Delhi excise policy-linked money laundering case and subsequently remanded in the agency's custody till March 28 by a court here.

AAP leaders on several occasions ruled out Kejriwal's resignation, insisting that he will run his government from inside the jail.

LG Saxena on Wednesday said, "I can assure the people of Delhi that the government will not be run from jail."
