"Isn't it a conspiracy... to slowly push Arvind Kejriwal towards death?": AAP minister Saurabh Bhardwaj

New Delhi: Delhi minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Saurabh Bhardwaj alleged that a conspiracy is being hatched to kill Chief Minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal inside Tihar jail.
The AAP leader alleged that CM Kejriwal, who is diabetic, is "slowly being pushed towards death" by denying doctor consultation or insulin.
"Arvind Kejriwal has been suffering from diabetes for 20-22 years. He has been on insulin for 12 years. Once a patient goes on insulin, his sugar can be controlled only with insulin," Saurabh Bhardwaj told ANI.
"Why is the jail administration not giving him insulin? Isn't a conspiracy being hatched to kill Arvind Kejriwal? To slowly push him towards death?" he added.
Meanwhile, the Tihar Jail Administration submitted a report to the Delhi Lieutenant Governor regarding the health status of CM Kejriwal, who has been lodged in Tihar jail since April 1 this year.
According to the report, CM Kejriwal was on insulin for diabetes control. The report also called it "incorrect" to say that the Chief Minister was being denied insulin by jail authorities.
"CM Kejriwal, as advised by the Telangana Doctor, was on an insulin reversal program and the Doctor had stopped insulin dosage much before the arrest of CM Kejriwal. At the time of arrest, he was just taking a basic anti-diabetes oral medicine tablet, Metformin," the report stated.
"During his medical check-ups in Tihar Jail, CM Kejriwal told Doctors that he had been taking insulin for the last few years and stopped taking it a few months ago, allegedly by a Telangana Doctor. Also, as per the MLC report available from RML Hospital, Kejriwal was neither advised to take any insulin nor required to take any insulin," it added.
The report further mentioned that on April 10 and 15, Kejriwal was reviewed by "medicine specialist" and advised oral anti-diabetic drugs or medicines.
"It is incorrect to state that Kejriwal was denied insulin at any point of time during his treatment," it stated.

"The medicine specialist, after examining Kejriwal, also noted that considering all parameters and vitals of the UTP (Kejriwal) since his placement in judicial custody, his blood sugar levels are not alarming, and administration of insulin is not required as of now," it said.
The report also said that the Tihar Jail Administration had written to AIIMS that Kejriwal has been consuming high-sugar food like Sweets, Laddoos, Bananas, Mangoes, Fruit Chaat, fried food, Namkeen, Bhujia, Sweetened Tea, Poori-Aloo, Pickles and other high-cholesterol foods on a regular basis and accordingly sought a Diet Plan for Kejriwal.
Delhi Minister and AAP leader Atishi alleged that the Tihar report has "revealed BJP's conspiracy". She also alleged conspiracy to kill Kejriwal in jail.
"Tihar report has revealed BJP's conspiracy. Any doctor will tell you that 300 sugar level is dangerous. At the behest of BJP, a conspiracy is going on to kill CM Kejriwal in jail. Why is the jail administration having problems giving insulin to CM Kejriwal? CM Arvind Kejriwal has been taking insulin for 12 years. Before going to jail, he used to take 50 units of insulin daily," Atishi said in a statement.
Earlier on Friday, Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court reserved order on a plea moved by Kejriwal seeking direction to Tihar jail authorities to administer insulin and allow him to consult doctors through video conferencing daily for 15 minutes with respect to his acute diabetes and fluctuating blood sugar level.
Kejriwal was arrested on March 21 by the ED about the Delhi Excise Policy case. The trial court, on April 15, extended the judicial custody of Arvind Kejriwal until April 23.
The ED alleged that the Aam Adami Party is the major beneficiary of the proceeds of crime generated in the alleged liquor scam.
