NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders have voiced concern over Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s health, alleging that his condition has been rapidly deteriorating since his arrest in the Delhi excise policy case by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

Delhi’s 42-year-old Finance Minister, Atishi highlighted that Kejriwal has lost approximately 4.5 kg since his arrest on March 21, emphasizing his severe diabetic condition and relentless dedication to serving the country.

The AAP leader wrote on X, “Arvind Kejriwal is a severe diabetic. Despite health problems, he used to work 24 hours a day to serve the country. Since his arrest, Arvind Kejriwal has lost 4.5 kg of weight. This is very worrying. Today, the BJP is putting his health at risk by putting him in jail. If something happens to Arvind Kejriwal, forget about the entire country, even God will not forgive them,” added Atishi, “BJP can go to any extent to ruin Arvind Kejriwal and AAP and hence I am warning BJP that the entire nation is watching you.”
