NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal penned a letter to the Tihar Jail Superintendent on Monday, alleging that the jail authority had issued false statements concerning his health.

In his letter, Kejriwal refuted the claim that he never raised the issue of insulin. He stated, “I have raised the issue of insulin for 10 days, every day, multiple times. I showed my high sugar levels to every doctor who came to see me… Almost every day, I demanded insulin.”

Kejriwal also addressed another statement that suggested AIIMS doctors had assured him there was no serious concern regarding his health. He clarified, “AIIMS doctors never assured any such thing. They said that they will see all the data and then give their advice.” He expressed his distress over the issuance of false statements under political pressure and urged the jail authority to adhere to the law and constitution.

Meanwhile, BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa accused Kejriwal of staging a drama. He claimed that Kejriwal was using his health issues to gain sympathy amidst allegations of drug peddling against the Aam Aadmi Party. Sirsa stated, “Arvind Kejriwal is staging a drama by writing letters to the jailer claiming that his sugar level is high and he needs insulin… this is just Kejriwal’s drama to gain sympathy.”

The Tihar Jail authority has yet to respond to his letter. The investigation into the matter is ongoing.
