Sunita Kejriwal, the wife of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is now arrested, said that her husband is not receiving insulin in Tihar jail because they want to kill him, on Sunday.

Speaking at the INDIA bloc rally in Ranchi, Sunita Kejriwal said that cameras were watching every bite Arvind Kejriwal took.

Arvind Kejriwal’s detention without evidence of crime, was a dictatorship, according to Sunita Kejriwal. She claimed that although Kejriwal, who is an IITian, had the option to go abroad, chose to remain in India out of love for it.

During her address she said, Arvind Kejriwal and Hemant Soren have been arrested. They have been arrested without having been found guilty. It’s a dictatorship here, she added. Mrs Kejriwal also questioned that what is her husband’s fault? Is it providing good education, health facilities? Patriotism is in his blood, she said.

Being an IITan, he had the option to go to abraod, but he chooses to prioritize his country. He took leave from the IRS to perform public duty. He has risked his life to save others, she remarked.

Sunita Kejriwal claimed Arvind Kejriwal merely wants to serve the country and has no thirst for power. She also referred to her husband as a lion and expressed concern over the nation’s jail population.

In an attempt to establish grounds for medical bail, the Enforcement Directorate has asserted that Arvind Kejriwal has been consuming sugar in tea, aloo-poori, and mangoes to raise his blood sugar levels.

In a Delhi court, Kejriwal’s lawyer denied the ED’s accusation, claiming he wouldn’t risk paralysis in exchange for release. He asserted that Kejriwal was not provided with insulin while incarcerated. Furthermore, he added that out of the 48 meals Kejriwal had received from home, he had only had mangoes three times. He claimed that he only ever had aloo poori for Navratri prasad.

At the Ulgulan Nyay Rally  in Ranchi, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said that when Prime Minister Narendra Modi talks about corruption, it seems as Osama Bin Laden and Gabbar Singh are advocating for nonviolence.

As part of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) campaign for the Lok Sabha Election, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will be holding a mega roadshow in Silchar, Assam today, April 21.

According to Silchar Member of Parliament (MP) Rajdeep Roy, Shah would arrive at Silchar Airport in a special aircraft at 4:10 p.m. and arrive in Silchar town via helicopter. He said, they are expecting the roadshow to start around 4.30pm.

Shah will be doing campaign work for Parimal Suklabaidya, the BJP’s nominee for the Silchar Lok Sabha seat. Following the delimitation procedure in Assam last year by the Election Commission, Silchar was designated as a reserve seat for candidates from scheduled castes. Suklabaidya, a five-term member of parliament from the Cachar district, has held several portfolios under the Assam government.

In addition to accompanying Amit Shah on the roadshow on Sunday, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma predicted that Parimal will win by a margin of two to three lakh votes over the rival contenders.

Shah’s rally, will begin from the playground owned by the District Sports Association (DSA) in Silchar and culminate at the Chittaranjan Statue Point, according to Roy. Over a lakh of supporters will participate in the roughly 1.5-kilometer walk. During the roadshow, Shah is scheduled to deliver a speech, he continued.

Central security agencies and senior Assam police officers staged a mock drill in Silchar’s streets ahead of Shah’s rally. According to them, sufficient security has been set up before the home minister’s arrival.

According to party officials, bad weather has forced Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge to cancel his Sunday visit to an event in the Karimganj district of Assam.

The Congress party’s Rajat Chakraborty announced that Kharge’s visit has been canceled owing to Friday night’s thunderstorms and intense rain. The agencies suggested that we cancel the visit because of the high security measures required for his visit, he stated.
