The court rejected Arvind Kejriwal’s PIL to remove him from the post of Chief Minister

It may be noted that the petitioner in the PIL said that the imprisonment of the chief minister not only obstructs the proper administration of law but also weakens the constitutional machinery of the state. The petitioner referred to Articles 163 and 164 of the Constitution and claimed that Kejriwal would not be able to discharge his duties and responsibilities as Chief Minister due to his imprisonment. They will not be able to do anything the law allows them to do while in prison. If they were allowed to do so, any matter relating to the welfare of the state, no matter how confidential, would reach the prison authorities under security before reaching them in prison. This would be a direct violation by Kejriwal of the Prime Minister’s oath of secrecy under the Third Schedule of the Constitution.
