Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday called a meeting of AAP MLAs to discuss the actions by central probe agencies against ministers and leaders of the party, sources said.

After the meeting, Delhi minister Saurabh Bharadwaj said all the MLAs present in the meeting told Kejriwal that "if he is arrested, he will continue to be chief minister since he has been given the mandate by the people of Delhi to run the government".

"All of them had a unanimous view that the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are scared of Arvind Kejriwal. The BJP knows that it cannot oust Kejriwal from power through elections and it can only be done by hatching a conspiracy," Bharadwaj told reporters. Bharadwaj said officers will go to jail for meetings and "if we are called, we will be happy to go".

"The conditions look like we will also be in jail soon. Such an atmosphere is being created that even we might join chief minister in jail. So it might be possible that Atishi will be lodged in jail number 2 and I in jail number 1 and we will hold cabinet meetings inside jail. We will ensure that the work for the people of Delhi is not stopped," he said.

Last week, AAP national convener Kejriwal was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with its probe in the excise policy-linked money laundering case.

Delhi minister Raaj Kumar Anand's residence was also raided by the ED in a separate money laundering probe. Party MP Sanjay Singh was arrested by the ED recently after an hours-long raid at his residence in connection with the alleged excise policy scam.
