The single-phase polls in Himachal Pradesh on November 12 registered a record 75.6 per cent polling on all 68 seats. In the 2017 Assembly elections, the voter turnout was 75.57 per cent.

The Dharampur seat had a 6.93 percentage point increase from 63.6 per cent in 2017 to 70.54 per cent in the recent election. However, the percentage decreased significantly in Shimla and Baijnath, from 63.93% in 2017 to 62.53% and from 64.92% in 2017 to 63.46%, respectively.

The exit polls predict a close fight between the grand old party and the saffron party according to Aaj Tak-Axis My India the BJP is at 29 whereas its counterpart is at 35, however, as per the ABP News-Cvoter exit poll prediction the BJP is at succeeding with 37 whereas the Congress is at 28. The Aam Aadmi Party has failed to change any flare in the voting trends as the exit polls predict nothing for AAP in Himachal Pradesh.

Arvind Kejriwal given insulin in Tihar jail after sugar levels touch 320

Finally, the BJP and its jail administration came to their senses and gave insulin to CM Arvind Kejriwal in jail, AAP tweeted.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal received insulin on Tuesday, April 23, after days of battling, according to the Aam Aadmi Party.

Arvind Kejriwal, however, received a low dose of insulin, according to Tihar jail officials, following a rise in his blood sugar. Around 7:00 p.m., his blood sugar level was found to be 217, and the medical staff at Tihar who were attending to him then made the decision to give him insulin, according to an official.

Taking to social media X, formerly Twitter, AAP tweeted, CM Arvind Kejriwal received insulin in jail after the BJP and its jail administration finally had a change of heart. CM Kejriwal’s blood sugar level was 320. Only the graces of Lord Hanuman and the perseverance of the Delhi community have made this possible. The AAP announced in a tweet on X that they have succeeded in delivering insulin to our Chief Minister.

According to the Tihar official, Kejriwal was given two units of low dose insulin on Monday evening on the advice of AIIMS doctors.

Low-dose insulin was given to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at Tihar Jail yesterday. Yesterday, his sugar levels were 217. When the level surpasses 200, the AIIMS experts had stated that he could receive low-dose insulin, according to a Tihar Jail official.

He said Tihar’s doctors had been informed by AIIMS specialists in a video conference with the chief minister on April 20 that insulin could be given to him if his blood sugar level exceeded a specific threshold.

The incident took place just one day after a Delhi court ordered the AIIMS to set up a medical board to evaluate Arvind Kejriwal in order to determine whether or not he requires insulin to regulate his blood sugar levels. The court further said that the food prepared at home by the AAP national convenor differs from the diet plan prescribed by his doctor.

The order was issued by special judge Kaveri Baweja for CBI and ED cases, who turned down Arvind Kejriwal’s request for a video consultation with his doctor in front of his wife Sunita Kejriwal.

Delhi health minister Saurabh Bharadwaj  said on Monday that Arvind Kejriwal has been detained in Tihar for almost 22 days. He has been complaining for several days that his blood sugar is rising and that the jail does not have a diabetes specialist. He has been requesting insulin. It is evident from the court’s ruling today that Tihar jail does not have a diabetes specialist.

Since insulin is the only option available to control his blood sugar levels, Arvind Kejriwal has been requesting it nonstop for the past ten days, according to AAP leader Atishi.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested Arvind Kejriwal on March 21 in relation to a money-laundering investigation involving the Delhi government’s now-scrapped excise policy. The CM has been logged in Tihar jail since April 1.

Lok Sabha elections: BJP candidate Mukesh Dalal wins from Surat after opponents remain out of fray

BJP’s Surat Lok Sabha candidate Mukesh Dalal has won the seat unopposed

Published

on

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Mukesh Dalal is elected unopposed from Gujarat’s Surat Lok Sabha constituency after all other contenders withdrew their candidature.

Gujrat BJP chief CR Paatil took to hi social media account X, formerly Twitter, and congratulated Dalal for being elected unopposed.

This latest developmnet comes after the cancellation of two Congress candidates’ nominations on Sunday and the withdrawal of eight more on Monday.

The Congress candidate for the Surat Lok Sabha constituency, Nilesh Kumbhani, had his nomination form canceled since he was unable to produce even one of his three proposers before the election commissioner.

The differences in three proposers’ signatures on Kumbhani’s nomination form had drawn scrutiny from the BJP.

The Congress’s replacement candidate from Surat, Suresh Padsala, had his nomination form nullified as well, which eliminated the party from the race in the city.

Returning Officer Sourabh Pardhi issued an order stating that the four nomination forms that Kumbhani and Padsala had presented were refused because there were initially found differences in the proposers’ signatures, making them seem fake.

Pardhi’s order also mentioned that the proposers acknowledged having signed the forms themselves in their affidavits. It should be noted that Kumbhani’s three proposers were related to him.

Nilesh Kumbhani was given a day by the Returning Officer to submit his response following the proposers’ claim. The congressional candidate arrived at the polling place with his representative; however, none of his three proposers showed up.

According to the order, the Congress candidate’s attorney had requested that the camera tape be checked, and even their presence was not discovered.

Meanwhile, the Congress said that everyone was afraid of the government’s threat and accused the ruling BJP of being involved in dirty play.

Congress leader and activist Babu Mangukiya said that Kumbhani’s three proposers had been abducted, and he suggested that the Returning Officer look into this matter rather than the validity of the signed form.

According to Mangukiya, it was improper to cancel the form without first telechecking the signatures and determining whether or not the proposers’ signatures were accurate.

Arvind Kejriwal writes letter to Tihar Jail officials, asks for insulin daily

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, jailed in the now-scrapped liquor policy case, said he had been requesting insulin daily due to high blood sugar levels

Published

on

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is a diabetic patient who filed a legal action alleging that Tihar Jail staff denied him the supply of  insulin for 31 days, has taken aim at the jail administration, charging them with alse statements and lying under political pressure (from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party).

According to sources, the Aam Aadmi Party chief, who is arrest by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 in connection with an alleged Delhi liquor policy scam, wrote a letter to the superintendent of Tihar Jail after the jail set up a video conference with medical professionals from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), which is run by the central government. Jail officials said that the insulin supply had not been increased following the discussion.

The doctors assured Kejriwal that there is no serious concern, and they suggested him to continue with the prescribed medicines, which will be evaluated regularly, according to jail officials.

Kejriwal, however, views the situation differently.

The Delhi CM mentioned in his letter, that he read the Tihar administration’s statement in the press. After reading the statements, he was sad. In his letter, Kejriwal said, Tihar Jail’s two claims are false. He requests insulin every day. He told the jail authority that sugar levels are high after displaying the glucometer readings to them three times a day, he added.

He continued saying  that the values for sugar levels are between 250 and 320 mg/dl, and that he demandeds insulin almost every day. Then how the jail officials are claiming that he never brought up the topic of insulin?, the AAP leader said.

Kejriwal also mentioned the data of World Health Organization (WHO) which says, the expected values for normal fasting blood glucose concentration are between 70 and 100 mg/dL (or milligrams per decilitre).

AIIMS doctors never said there is nothing to worry about. They said they will respond after looking at the (medical) data and (patient) history, added the chief minister.

He is believed to have told the jail chief, the Tihar administration is lying under political pressure,in an effort to increase hostilities with the Centre, which he has accused of having a political vendetta, in the run-up to the May 25 Lok Sabha election in the national capital.
