Arvind Kejriwal’s Wife Addresses Media, Highlights Health Concerns Amid Delhi CM’s Custodial Battle

In a significant development amidst Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s ongoing legal battle, his wife, Sunita, took to the media platform for the second time on Wednesday, shedding light on the CM’s health condition. Sunita revealed that Kejriwal, grappling with diabetes, is facing challenges in managing his blood sugar levels, yet remains resolute in his commitment to serve the national capital.

During her address to the media, Sunita relayed a message from Kejriwal in Hindi, emphasizing his unwavering spirit despite physical constraints. She quoted him as saying, “My body may be confined, but my soul remains amidst the people. Close your eyes and feel my presence.” This statement underscores Kejriwal’s enduring dedication to his constituents despite being detained.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal’s plea for immediate release on grounds of the purported “illegality” of his arrest and subsequent remand to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is under consideration by Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma of the Delhi High Court.

In a proactive move, just two days after his initial directive from custody, Kejriwal issued a fresh order entrusting Health Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj with the responsibility to address the scarcity of medicines and diagnostic tests in mohalla clinics and hospitals across the city.

Speaking at a press conference, Bharadwaj emphasized the government’s commitment to ensuring equitable access to healthcare, particularly for the underprivileged. He stated, “Regardless of Kejriwal’s current situation, it is imperative that every citizen, especially the underprivileged, has access to essential medicines at government facilities. While the middle class may afford medicines, many families in Delhi rely entirely on government hospitals and mohalla clinics, some requiring lifelong medication.”
