NEW DELHI: AAP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has written a letter from Tihar Jail addressing the people of his assembly constituency in which he expressed hope that he will be out of jail soon.

The former deputy chief minister, arrested in connection with the Delhi excise policy scam case, also compared his plight with the atrocities perpetrated by the British against freedom fighters and asserted that he remains committed to the cause of education for all.

“Will meet you soon outside. The British rulers had also arrogance of power and they sent people to jail in false cases,” he said and added that Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, who spent many years in jail, were his inspiration.
