The UN intervened, expressing its hope that all Indian citizens can cast their ballots in free and fair parliamentary elections, after India declared Washington's demand for justice in cases involving opposition parties "unwarranted" and "unacceptable," according to PTI, the nation's news agency. 

UN Steps in Arvind Kejriwal Arrest case: the Case raising the temper of LokSabha Elections

Stephane Dujarric, the spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, expressed hope on Thursday that all voters will be able to cast ballots in a free and fair manner and that civil and political rights will be upheld in India and any other nation that holds elections.

Dujarric made these comments in answer to a question on the political turmoil in India before the 2018 LokSabha elections. This inquiry was prompted by Arvind Kejriwal's arrest and the opposition party bank accounts in Delhi being suspended as a result.

According to the Press Trust of India (PTI), Dujarric said "What we very much hope that in India, as in any country that is having elections, that everyone's rights are protected, including civil and political rights, and that everyone can vote in an ambience that is free and fair."

In response to Kejriwal's arrest and the blocking of the Congress party's bank accounts, the US also released a statement. In reaction to the earlier reply, the UN has issued a statement. The US administration responded to India's decision to call a top US diplomat to protest remarks made regarding Kejriwal's arrest on Wednesday by restating its support for just, transparent, and expeditious legal proceedings.

In response to the news that the US envoy had been called in for questioning, State Department spokesman Matthew Miller stated, "I am not going to talk about any private diplomatic conversations."

The meeting started and lasted for over thirty minutes after India's response to recent remarks made by the US Department of State regarding the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. In response, India stated that these critiques were "unwarranted" and expressed pride in its robust and self-governing democratic institutions. It also promised to protect these institutions against outside interference of any kind, no matter how justified.

Spokesman for the Ministry of External Affairs Randhir Jaiswal said during his weekly news briefing in New Delhi that it is "completely unacceptable" for anyone from outside India to remark on India's electoral and legal procedures. On Thursday, Jaiswal made the following statement: India's legal system is based on the rule of law.
