Manish Sisodia Compares Imprisonment to Freedom Struggle, Asserts Education Revolution from Jail

Former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi and senior leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Manish Sisodia, incarcerated in the Delhi excise policy case, has penned a letter from Tihar jail to his assembly constituency, Patparganj. Drawing parallels between his imprisonment and the struggles faced by freedom fighters under British colonial rule, Sisodia reiterated his commitment to the cause of education.

In his missive, Sisodia likened his ‘fight for education’ to the freedom struggle, emphasizing the necessity of quality education and schools for national development. He expressed confidence in walking out of jail soon and continuing his mission for educational reform.

Referencing historical figures such as Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, whom he considers inspirations, Sisodia highlighted how even they were incarcerated by the British on false charges. He thanked his constituents for their support and care towards his ailing wife during his absence.

Sisodia’s bail hearing is scheduled for April 6, with investigations into his role being conducted by both the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The CBI has voiced concerns that releasing Sisodia on bail could hamper their ongoing probe or lead to evasion of justice.
