"Arvind Kejriwal's food being monitored...they want to kill him": Sunita Kejriwal

Ranchi (Jharkhand): Levelling strong accusations against the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Centre, Sunita Kejriwal, the wife of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, said that every morsel being consumed by her husband is being monitored and attempts are being made to "kill" him in jail by denying him insulin.

The former bureaucrat further said that CM Kejriwal has "no desire" for power and he just wants to serve the nation and bring it to the first position in the world.

She was speaking at the 'Nyay Ulgulan Rally' by INDIA bloc leaders against the arrest of two key opposition faces -- ex-Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal -- in Ranchi, Jharkhand, amid the ongoing Lok Sabha polls.

Addressing the rally, Sunita Kejriwal said, "Arvind Kejriwal has no desire for power. He just wants to serve the nation. He wants to make the country no.1. He says if educated people don't come in politics, how will the country progress?...'Jail ke taale tutenge, Arvind Kejriwal, Hemant Soren chhutenge."

Sunita Kejriwal further alleged that the Delhi Chief Minister is not being allowed insulin in jail, while claiming that he has been taking it for the last 12 years. She further alleged that there is a conspiracy to kill CM Kejriwal.

"Many people say politics is a very dirty thing, and it's true. There is a camera over his food, his every morsel is being monitored...He is a sugar patient, and he has been taking 50 units of insulin every day for the last 12 years. But he is not being given insulin in jail. They want to kill Delhi's CM," the wife of the AAP national convenor said.

"They can never understand Arvind Kejriwal's thoughts. He believes he has received very good education and upbringing, which is an obligation on him that he has to repay. He has struggled and fought for the country. He is very brave. He is a lion. He is only thinking about how to ease the lives of common citizens. He is worried about 'Bharat Mata' even in jail," she added.

She was reading Arvind Kejriwal's message from jail, and elaborated upon the promises made by the Aam Aadmi Party for the Lok Sabha elections.

"He (Arvind Kejriwal) has said if INDIA bloc comes to power and is given the responsibility, we will all make India great. 'INDIA' is not just in our name, but in our hearts too," the former bureaucrat said.

"He has given six guarantees: 24 hours of electricity without power cuts, free electricity for poor, quality and free education in government schools, Mohalla clinics in every village, and multi-speciality hospitals in every district. Farmers will get crop prices according to the Swaminathan Commission, and Delhi will be given full statehood," she further added.

Earlier, a similar INDIA bloc rally was also held in the Ramlila Maidan in the national capital, where several opposition leaders joined hands to make a call for "saving democracy" in the country.

Elections will be held in Jharkhand in four phases: May 13, 20, 25, and June 1.

In 2019, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) won 12 seats in Jharkhand, with the BJP winning 11. The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and Congress got one seat each.

Meanwhile, the Tihar Jail Administration submitted a report to the Delhi Lieutenant Governor yesterday regarding the health status of Kejriwal, who has been lodged in Tihar jail since April 1 this year.

According to the report, 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.

Earlier on Friday, Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court reserved order on a plea moved by Kejriwal seeking direction from 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.
