On Tuesday, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Sanjay Singh conveyed a message from incarcerated Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal: ‘I am Arvind Kejriwal, and I am not a terrorist.’

Singh alleged relentless efforts to demoralise Kejriwal, currently held in Tihar Jail since March 21 in the Delhi excise policy case

 Accusing authorities of treating Kejriwal unfairly, Singh denounced it as vendetta politics. Kejriwal’s message, according to Singh, reaffirms his dedication to Delhi’s people and the nation.

Singh, himself released from Tihar Jail on April 4, criticised the protocol of Kejriwal’s meeting with Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann, seeing it as indicative of PM Modi’s animosity towards Kejriwal.

Singh asserted Kejriwal’s resilience, emphasising that adversity only strengthens him. He highlighted Mann’s emotional reaction during the meeting, portraying it as a collective sentiment against BJP’s tactics.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal has approached a court seeking permission to consult his regular doctor via video conferencing due to fluctuating blood sugar levels.

Special Judge Rakesh Syal of Rouse Avenue Court directed the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to file a reply on the application and listed the matter for April 18.

On Monday, Special Judge Kaveri Baweja extended CM Kejriwal’s judicial custody till April 23 in the money laundering case related to an alleged excise policy scam being probed by the ED.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo was produced before Judge Baweja on Monday on the expiry of his previously granted 14-day judicial custody.

On Tuesday, Kejriwal’s counsel informed the court that his blood sugar level dropped to 46 and argued that in such circumstances, Kejriwal should be allowed to consult his doctor three times a week via video conferencing.

However, Special Public Prosecutor (ED) Simon Benjamin contended that jail facilities are equipped to provide medical examination, suggesting that Kejriwal could be examined there, and expressed his intent to file a reply on the application.
