NEW DELHI: The AAP on Thursday alleged that the Modi government has withheld insulin from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for 28 days, raising serious concerns about his health and safety.

The party stated that despite being on an insulin reversal program, Kejriwal’s treatment was abruptly halted following his arrest, resulting in a concerning increase in his blood sugar level, which has now reached up to 300. Requests for insulin have been denied by the Tihar administration, and attempts to arrange a video conference with his doctor are facing opposition from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Tihar jail authorities.

AAP leader Atishi questioned the motives behind denying Kejriwal’s insulin and accused the BJP of putting his life at risk, hinting at a potential conspiracy. Additionally, criticisms have been directed at the ED for spreading false rumours about the CM’s diet, with clarification that he can consume sweets made with a prescribed sweetener.

Atishi alleged that PM Modi is orchestrating a significant conspiracy against Kejriwal.

“To keep his blood sugar level under control, he takes 54 units of insulin daily. What to eat, what exercises to do, and when to do them are all crucial for controlling blood sugar That’s why the court has also allowed him to have home-cooked meals prescribed by doctors.”

“But today, the BJP is trying to harm Kejriwal by attempting to stop his home-cooked meals. Today, the ED has repeatedly lied in court that Kejriwal is drinking sweet tea and eating sweets. This is an outright lie, as the CM is allowed to have tea and sweets made with the sweetener .‘Erythritol’ prescribed by his doctors,” Atishi added.
