Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal moves to Delhi court for insulin in jail | India News

NEW DELHI: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday filed a petition in the Rouse Avenue court seeking permission for the access of insulin in jail.

The development comes a day after the Enforcement Directorate claimed that Arvind Kejriwal is eating food high in sugar every day despite having type 2 diabetes to create grounds for medical bail.

Meanwhile, AAP MP Sanjay Singh launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bhartiya Janata Party and accused them of hatching a conspiracy of killing Delhi CM Kejriwal in jail.

“A conspiracy is being hatched to kill Arvind Kejriwal at the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP,” he said.

“Arvind Kejriwal has been a diabetic patient for the last 30 years. He takes insulin, but despite this, he is not being given insulin in jail,” he added.

The MP also slammed BJP leaders for “making fun” of an ailment suffered by Kejriwal and added that “misleading” news about the Delhi chief minister was being spread.

“If the rules of jail do not allow health-related information of an inmate to be shared with anyone, then why did the ED publicise a fake diet chart of Kejriwal in the media on Thursday,” he asked.

However, Singh asserted that Kejriwal will not break or bow down.

Previously, Delhi minister Atishi Thursday alleged that there was a plot to kill chief minister Arvind Kejriwal by denying him home-cooked food and insulin in jail, a charge rejected by the prison authorities.

Her allegations came hours after the ED claimed before a court that Kejriwal is eating high-sugar foods like mangoes, bananas and sweets every day despite having type 2 diabetes to create grounds for medical bail or shift to a hospital.

Kejriwal was arrested by the ED on March 21 in connection with a money laundering probe relating to alleged irregularities in the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy 2021-22.
