New Delhi, India — Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has petitioned the Delhi High Court against city court orders from April 10 and July 1, which denied his request for additional meetings with his lawyers. The Delhi High Court has issued a notice in response to Kejriwal’s plea, which seeks additional video conferencing sessions with his legal team to discuss the numerous litigations pending against him nationwide.

Kejriwal’s original plea, which sought five additional meetings per week, was dismissed by the city court on April 10. The court reiterated its stance in its July 1 order, stating that Kejriwal’s legal team had not sufficiently justified the need for additional meetings beyond the currently permitted two sessions per week.

In his appeal to the High Court, Kejriwal emphasized the necessity for more frequent consultations due to the multiple cases pending against him in different states. He argued that ensuring proper legal representation in all cases is a fundamental right, which requires the ability to adequately communicate with his lawyers.

The High Court’s notice marks the beginning of a new phase in Kejriwal’s legal battle for enhanced access to his legal team, underscoring the complexities involved in managing widespread litigations while adhering to court-imposed restrictions.
