INDIA bloc rally: Sunita Kejriwal claims Arvind Kejriwal’s meals monitored, conspiracy to kill him in jail

Addressing the INDIA bloc’s rally in Ranchi, Sunita Kejriwal lashed out at the Centre and claimed conspiracy to kill her husband



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.

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.

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.

Rohit Sharma criticises impact player rule, BCCI reacts



India captian and Mumbai Indians star cricketer Rohit sharma criticised the impact player rule and sad that he is not a big fan of it. Now, BCCI has responded to Sharma’s comment and said that they will reevaluate the rule.

Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Arun Dhumal also acknowledged this and said  that every decision has advantages and disadvantages, he also mentioned  BCCI is prepared to review the regulation when the current IPL season concludes.

Ahead to being established in the IPL, the impact player rule was initially put into effect in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament in 2022–2023. There have been many expert comments regarding the rule that has been in place for almost two editions of the prestigious T20 tournament, with the many of players being against it.

Since this remark has been made, they will certainly analyze it and talk to everyone concerned and then the board will take calls, Dhumal said.

Every rule that is in place has a number of advantages and disadvantages. Nothing about its execution is set in stone, so after the season ends, they are open to any discussion, he continued.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma also discussed how the impact player rule is reducing the role of all-rounders in the sport.

Sharma said, he is not a big fan of Impact sub rule. All rounders will eventually be held back because cricket is ultimately played by 11 players, not 12. To make the game exciting for everyone around you, you are taking a great deal from it. During an interew the hitman said, if the audience look just at the cricketing side of things, he feels guys like Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar aren’t getting to bowl, which is not a good thing for them as a team.

He continued saying that there are 12 players, it’s interesting, and after the team or the captain sees how the game and the pitch are playing, they might turn on the impact player. You can add another bowler, giving you a total of six or seven bowlers, if the team bats effectively and don’t lose wickets. Many teams are hitting well up front, and he hardly ever sees a No 7 or No 8 coming to bat, so the team doesn’t need that additional batter, Rohit Sharma said.
