Arvind Kejriwal Receives Insulin in Tihar Jail Amid Surging Blood Sugar Levels; What Saurabh Bharadwaj Said?

Delhi's Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, received insulin treatment in Tihar jail on Monday night as his blood sugar levels peaked at 320. Allegations emerged that the jail administration failed to provide insulin despite repeated requests from Kejriwal. However, the Tihar jail administration countered these claims, asserting that during a video consultation with AIIMS specialists, the issue of insulin was not raised.

The undeniable truth emerges: Bharadwaj

"Today, the undeniable truth emerges: the Chief Minister required insulin all along. However, officials under the BJP's central government intentionally withheld treatment. So, I ask the BJP: if insulin wasn't necessary, why administer it now? Because the whole world is cursing them," said Saurabh Bharadwaj, Delhi Minister and AAP leader.

Following a city court's directive, AIIMS formed a medical board to evaluate Kejriwal's medical requirements, particularly concerning insulin. Discrepancies were highlighted between his prescribed diet and his actual dietary regimen, primarily comprising home-cooked food.

AAP alleged a conspiracy by Tihar administration

In response to the jail administration's denial, Kejriwal reiterated his persistent demands for insulin over the past ten days in a letter to the Tihar jail superintendent. AAP alleged a conspiracy by the Tihar administration to harm Kejriwal.

Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva dismissed claims of insulin necessity, suggesting a ploy by AAP to garner sympathy during the Lok Sabha elections.

The Enforcement Directorate accused Kejriwal of consuming sugary foods regularly. The ED said Kejriwal was manipulatiing his health for legal advantage. Kejriwal refuted these accusations, presenting evidence of his fluctuating sugar levels and consistent demand for insulin.

Arvind Kejriwal was arrested on March 21 by the ED in connection with a money-laundering case linked to Delhi's former excise policy and has been detained in Tihar jail since April 1. His petition challenging the summonses issued by the probe agency will be heard by the Delhi High Court on May 15.
